Have a Blast with the Subaru BRZ

Design

The Subaru BRZ is a sports ride-and it looks like one. This nameplate uses a 2+2 fastback coupe body style. This means that it has a sloping roofline and truncated rear, but with four doors instead of two. As a result, it's much easier for rear-seat passengers to go into the vehicle; they can simply open the rear doors instead of pushing and folding forward the front seats for access.

Seventeen-inch alloy wheels and a trunk spoiler aid in the BRZ moving better through the air and feeling relatively light on the road. The front of the vehicle includes fog lights for penetrating illumination during hard-to-see driving conditions. The fog lights and headlights bear LEDs for supremely bright and longer-lasting illumination. On the tS, the 17-inch alloy wheels are replaced by larger, 18-inch ones for increased ground clearance.

Performance

Regardless of trim, the BRZ has a sport-tuned strut-type front and double-wishbone rear suspension for a firm ride. (For a stiffer ride, go with the tS.) Four-wheel disc brakes-with a Brembo performance braking system on the tS-are strong and bring the car to a stop almost immediately when you press the brake pedal. Electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering is responsive and delivers quick and precise turning and cornering.

The BRZ uses a rear-wheel-drive system. With the engine-which is a 2.0-Liter flat-four-positioned in the front, power is sent to the rear wheels. This creates a front-to-rear weight distribution that's close to 50/50, thereby resulting in balanced handling. Ultimately, the BRZ provides an easy and fun drive.

 

The engine on the BRZ produces 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. That's enough power to make your ride thrilling. Even more thrilling is the 6-speed manual transmission, which allows Hayward drivers full control of gear shifting. The accompanying incline start assist prevents the car from rolling back on a hill when starting to drive from a parked position. If you want more convenience, go for the 6-speed automatic transmission, which enables the best fuel economy numbers on the BRZ: 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

Safety

In the event of a crash, the Subaru BRZ is armed with two frontal airbags, two side impact airbags installed on the front seats, and two side curtain airbags mounted on the roof. Vehicle stability control detects and reduces the loss of traction to keep you on the right path of travel. The front-wheel disc brakes come with brake assist to provide additional stopping power when necessary. Daytime running lights automatically turn on to alert pedestrians and other motorists of your presence on the road; that way, unnecessary accidents or collisions can be prevented.

For security, Subaru combines proximity keyless entry with engine immobilization. All you need to have is the key fob in your possession to access the vehicle by touching the door handle. Inside is a push button to start the engine and get yourself on the road.
