The votes are in, the final tally has been scored and the new Scion FR-S has been named the top 2013 model for recent college graduates, according to a poll by Edmunds.com. The 2013 Best Cars for College Graduates survey asked recent grads to compare about two-dozen new models. The FR-S garnered 15.2 percent of first-place votes, the highest mark of any car in the contest.
So what makes the Scion FR-S so appealing to college graduates? Without question, one of the top factors includes its affordability, as the FR-S has a base price of just $24,500. But affordability is only one of several positive attributes that should have college students and recent grads gravitating toward this vehicle. Its sporty, athletic design and fun-to-drive nature also make the FR-S a winner to recent grads and students.
John DiPietro, automotive editor at Edmunds.com, noted how the “FR-S is a real ‘back-to-basics’ sports car” that is “lightweight, well balanced, responsive and very rewarding to drive.” The FR-S, which is available in five trims, comes standard with a four-cylinder engine that generates up to 200 horsepower, while still delivering up to 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. It also features advanced technology, from Bluetooth and iPod connectivity to a comprehensive eight-speaker system, which will make driving to classes a lot more fun.
Whether you want a sporty vehicle to cruise around campus or to make a good first impression at your new job, the 2013 Scion FR-S is an optimal – and affordable – option. Want to take one for a spin? Stop by Toyota of Manhattan today, and we can set you up for a test-drive.
On Monday we presented a check for $2,500 to the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, the second winning non-profit of our Big Apple Giving Campaign on Facebook. Maggie O’Neill, Director of Development and Steve Gruber, Director of Communications came to accept it on behalf of the organization.
The donation will go towards helping to advance their life-saving programs which include transporting cats and dogs from shelters to loving homes through the Wheels of Hope program. In 2011 alone they were able to transport more than 14,000 animals and this grant will help them transport a few thousand more.
