Offering An Affordable Sporty Car Without Compromises
Someone described the BRZ as a “small, fun-focused, rear-wheel-drive sports car.” This was quite a good summary of the only Subaru that doesn’t ride on all-wheel-drive, matching the Toyota 86 specs.
The engine of choice for the BRZ is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-four-cylinder. It is attached to a standard six-speed manual transmission but there is an option for the six-speed automatic. If you choose to a manual gearbox, it will give you 205 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque with power being sent to the rear wheels.
The automatic version generates 200hp and 151 lb-ft. It is sporty but not extremely fast as it will do 6.2 secs from zero to 60 mph.
Bearing in mind that this is a rather small car, space is enough for two adults but the back seat can squeeze persons of medium build. You can add the cargo volume by folding the rear seatbacks.
The entire cabin exemplifies a straightforward design and practicality. Physical knobs and buttons are in place. It also features 6.2-inch touchscreen infotainment that responds to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In fact, you can pick the larger 7.0-inch touchscreen available on the Limited model.
This Subbie is available in the Premium, Limited, and Series Gray trim. Considering that Subaru has kept the BRZ on a rather low price edge, it is still an enviable car that can be easily picked from the crowd.
