It appears that we can consider a 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake as a possible vehicle. Scion has already confirmed the making of their new sedan FR-S version. There is a discussion about the release date going on right now. However, they also mentioned the prospects of bringing in some new body styles for the car as well. One of them is the Shooting Brake model. This would be one of the more interesting styles and models that Scion has made.
The chief engineer of Scion, Tetsuya Tada, said that the prospect of designing this car is going to allow for people with larger families to be able to move about. It will give more room and certainly much more convenience than a usual kind of a car.
“This car needs to be developed,” Tada said.” It is the only way for me to move my dogs around,” he jokingly said about the prospect of the car. But in truth, if you have a lot of members that you need to move all at once the Shooting Brake could offer you the necessary characteristics you need to do so.
There are only rumors about this car. So, we cannot expect confirmations nor any solid evidence to state when they are going to make the car. It is an idea which could produce something much bigger than it is now. Nevertheless, as it looks like, there is a very big possibility that we do not make it to a production model at all. If the concept or a working model satisfies the needs of the customers, they may just decide to make this car and give us more to hope for.
Since the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake does not exist for now, we turned towards the offered renderings. So we decided to play a guessing game about what we could possibly get. The basis for the car is of course the Scion FR-S sport coupe model. But the Shooting Brake will increase the size by 70 mm compared to the existing version and stretch things out a bit.
The new size of the car is supposed to help the interior by improving the passenger capacity. In addition, it should be offering more space. The cargo capacity alone might jump from 243 liters to 298 liters for the car. And if we decide to put the seats down it will go even further to 1040 liters.
Also the interior will have certain additions to help the passengers feel just right. One of the possible additions is the 60/40 split bench. It could come in favor of the current fold-flat rear bench. It makes it a lot eager to pack the needed passengers that way. Moreover, it helps with improving the interior spacing as well.
Engine Type for the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake
The drivetrain choice for the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake will most likely come to the same choice as seen in the coupe version of the FR-S model. So we are probably looking at a 2.0-liter boxer-four engine which will enable an output of 200 horses and 151 pound-feet of twist.
Therefore we are expecting at least 143 pounds of weight added for this model. The acceleration specs are going to change as well. The ones that come with a manual may speed up to 0-60 mph in 7.8 seconds.At the same time the automatic ones will achieve the same in 8.5 seconds. Top speed is set somewhere at 155 mph as estimations go.
The model does not have an official release. However, if we are to guess the price of the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake we will simply increase the current coupe model by a margin.
The manual versions will cost £26,945, while the automatic ones come to £28,445. The prices in the US will be similar to these ones. It only takes the matter of translating the price into dollars. But it is much too early to really estimate. Furthermore, the base the price on something as much of the details are unknown.
Release Date for the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake
The 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake is still an idea and not really a real product. The designers from Scion may only be joking now. Yet, if they get serious the Shooting Brake may just be built and produced. For now we are looking at it as a potential vehicle which might get to be made, but if it does it will certainly not be earlier than 2019.
We might get it even later than that. All in all, the 2019 Scion FR-S Shooting Brake still does not exists and the prospect of getting a production vehicle is possible but we shall see how likely it gets to be.
