Toyota has revealed that it has an entry-level model that is expected to continue its proud tradition of lightweight sports cars that are a pleasure to drive. The new Toyota S-FR highlights responsiveness. The company hopes that a whole new generation will immediately fall in love with it once they have driven it.
The body of the S-FR provides a smooth driving style despite its light compact body. It is not just a sports car but manages to combine the simplicity innate in every entry-level model plus the intimacy that can bring closer together human and machine.
Because of the lightweight nature of this sports car, it gets distinct advantages. For example, because of its front engine/rear drive format, there is a better communication between the driver and the car and this is possible due to the direct and responsive handling.
Showing off the typical sports car profile are its wide stance and long nose. The roundness of its frame meanwhile gives it a feel of a certain kind of closeness.
Its design emphasizes simplicity while at the same time, it expresses a sporty spirit and performance and is completed with a simple yet modern finish to its interior.
The S-FR has a layout that places the engine on the front midship. This results in ensuring that the weight is optimally distributed and when combined with the independent suspension, it makes for good cornering performance.
The fun and responsive drive of the car is made possible due to the six-speed transmission that allows smooth acceleration. In general, the S-FR was conceptualized to be the vehicle that will not only attract and form its very own fan base but will also have them love driving it as well as customizing it.
