Shootout! The 2015 Honda Civic Si vs. 2015 Scion FR-S

By 0 Permalink 0

Where are all my sports car aficionados? It’s Honda Laura again, and boy, do I have a treat for you! Thanks to Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk, I was able to visit  Dynotech Tuning in Seekonk, MA to put two of the more popular sports cars to the test against each other!

(Drumroll, please…) I bring you the “Shootout Series” featuring the 2015 Honda Civic Si and the 2015 Scion FR-S. Both are popular models here in New England and I was curious to see how they pan out against each other in terms of speed & power! Be sure to watch my YouTube  video below to see them being put to the test on the Mustang Dynamometer.

The results are in and the 2015 Honda Civic Si clearly has the edge over the 2015 Scion FR-S. Remember, the engines are tested outside of the cars prior to being sold, so there is a 30% loss of power that is reflected in these test results. Still, if you ask me, these cars are pretty powerful! While the numbers only vary slightly between these two cars, the difference could have been attributed to the fact that the 2015 Scion FR-S is rear wheel drive while the 2015 Honda Civic Si is front wheel drive.
