Subaru BRZ Review

Over long years, Subaru has really earned a loyal recognition for making vehicles, which are capable of offering steadfast performance in the real practical sense and all-weather smooth mobility. One notable factor however is that every once in a while, Subaru tends to try out its luck on the wilder side too. The latest one in its line is Subaru BRZ, which is a small sports coupe, which bucks a lot of Subaru traditions.

For those who are looking for a start-up sport model, the sleek BRZ is available with a rear-wheel drive, a deviation from the company’s price of releasing of all-wheel drive models as a default standard. The engine is not turbo-charged, even though the company typically applies this technology to the high-performance models. However, Subaru BRZ has got a lot of things to offer as a performing model. It features exceptional handling comfort, sleek design, and compelling value. It can be said that for the first time in the last couple of decades, the consumers looking for a performing budget sport couple getting the right choice.

The all-new Subaru BRZ is a model released in 2013. Mechanically, it has more resemblance to the Scion FR-S as both these models are co-developed by Toyota and Subaru. They share almost the same layout design, basic engineering and the Powertrain, but still have got different in many of the styling details as well as performance features.

Both the models of Subaru BRZ are powered with a 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, which offers an output of 200 HP and 151 pound-feet torque. The power is directed to the rear wheels with the use of a 6-speed manual transmission. There is also another variant with a 6-speed automatic. The acceleration of the car is fairly adequate, but the fact is that many other performance cars in this range and quicker than BRZ. However, the fuel economy of BRZ is really appreciable that even the automatic transmission model is capable of offering a decent 28 mpg on highway.

The standard accessories of the base-level BRZ include 17-inch alloy wheels, xenon automatic headlights, LED daytime lights, air-conditioning, keyless entry, fabric upholstery, folding rear seatbacks, manual cruise control, touchscreen navigation, Bluetooth, as well as an eight-speaker music system. The premium trim level also offers extra foglights, heated mirrors, rear spoiler, keyless ignition/entry, automated dual-zone climate control, full leather upholstery, and heated front seats.

BRZ features a very simple and warmly styled cabin, which offers a blending of Subaru and Toyota switch gear and accessories. The front seats are very ergonomically designed and supportive. The backseats are really suitable for children as well as to carry goods.
