Scion wanted to inject more luxury into its models, so at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show , it will arrive with a new Monogram Series for a few vehicles, including the FR-S. This new upgrade adds Alcantara and navigation to Scion’s popular sports car, among many other new features.
The new FR-S Monogram Series will hit the market in February at $27,400 for the six-speed manual version and $28,500 for the six-speed sequential automatic version. Scion is also offering an optional premium Whiteout color priced at an additional $395. Only 2,000 FR-S Monogram Series units will be produced this year.
On the exterior, the new FR-S Monogram Series will look basically identical to a standard FR-S, except for its color-keyed rear spoiler and standard HID headlamps with LED daytime running lights. Most of the updates included in this new package are on the inside, and they represent a retail value of over $1,900.

Exceptional features will now come at even more exceptional prices. The 2014 Scion FR-S and tC gain premium features with the competitively priced, limited edition Monogram Series™ models on display for the first time at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Monogram Series vehicles will be available in dealerships starting in February.
“Through this limited edition Monogram Series, Scion brought together extra comforts and conveniences in the FR-S and tC without sacrificing value,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. “By incorporating these features as standard for a limited time, we provide a great price to go head-to-head with the competition and encourage more drivers to get excited about experiencing a Scion.”
