The BRZ is one of the newest members of the Subaru line up, and the product of a joint effort with Toyota. The resulting model is an attractively designed sports car crafted for superior handling and efficient power.
Subaru dropped an engine under the hood of the BRZ unique to the model based on the new-generation Boxer. It’s a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that produces 200hp @7000rpm and 151lb-ft of torque @6400rpm.
To provide the exceptional handling capabilities that the automaker was aiming for, the BRZ was fitted with an ‘ultra-low center of gravity package’ that brings the motor closer to the center of its lightweight chassis. The standard 6-speed manual transmission or available automatic transfers power to the rear wheels, and the model also gets a sport-tuned suspension with independent MacPherson struts up front and a double wishbone suspension in the rear. The Torsen limited-slip differential rounds out the performance details, keeping the model stuck to the road when you need it most.
A set of HID headlights are fitted to the BRZs exterior, as well as a set of fog lights, power heated side mirrors and a trunk spoiler, all reseting on a set of 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
With a 2+2 seating capability, the BRZ interior offers heated front seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, silver metallic accent trim, cloth upholstery or available alcantara and leather trim, dual-zone climate control, sport design gauges and a multi-function display.
The BRZ is available with a starting price of $25,595 for the Premium variant, with a Limited option. Fuel economy for the model is rated at 25 city/ 24 hwy.
