Edmunds.com Readers Name Scion FR-S the Best Car for College Grads

The Scion family of cars includes five great models that would be perfect for anyone fresh out of school, whether it’s the fuel efficient Scion iQ or the roomy and practical Scion xB. Readers of Edmunds.com had something else in mind, however, when they were polled for the 4th annual list of Best Cars for College Graduates.

As it turns out, that something else was the 200 horsepower, rear-wheel drive Scion FR-S.

The Scion FR-S was pitted against around two-dozen other cars, all of which were 2013 models that needed to fit the following criteria: They needed to be priced around $25,000, had to be attractively styled, needed to offer a fun driving experience, and had to include the type of features desired by drivers in their 20s.

While some of the competitors in the list came relatively close, ultimately the readers decided that the Scion FR-S provided the best combination of styling, performance, and features with 15.2% of the total vote.
