Subaru has gained a loyal following because of its reputation for reliability and symmetrical all-wheel drive, but its sports cars aren't as well-known. The Japanese company has piqued the interested of racing enthusiasts with the new rear-wheel drive Subaru BRZ. Although the Impreza WRX offered a taste or sport to an otherwise modest manufacturer, the BRZ gives extra spice to the name. At Subaru's modest price point, drivers who want style, power and agility can agree that the BRZ is a pleasant surprise.
The BRZ is powered by Subaru's horizontally opposed, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available six-speed automatic with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for a manual mode. The engine achieves an impressive 25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, which is very competitive in the sport-coupe segment.
In two trim levels, Premium and Limited, the BRZ offers standard features like a Torsen limited-slip differential, a navigation system with 6.1-inch touchscreen, six airbags, and an 8-speaker audio system with auxiliary and USB inputs. The BRZ gives the driver additional options like a deck lid spoiler, chrome fender trim and interior illumination kit, which will make your BRZ look the part.
