New Car Quick Quote
The product of Subaru's joint venture with Toyota, the BRZ is a brand new player in the sporty coupe field. It's based on the original sports car formula: rear-wheel drive, low weight and compact size. The 200-horsepower BRZ leaves the factory dressed like all its brothers -- there are no factory options except for an automatic transmission. Buyers looking for customization can choose from a range of accessories available through dealers.
Though modern in design, the BRZ is a back-to-basics sportster that places agility and fun above brute performance. Toyota's version is offered under the Scion brand as the FR-S.
The Subaru BRZ debuted in 2013, as a compact sports coupe that completely broke the Japanese automaker's mold. Under its hood, the BRZ carried a 2-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine that Subaru developed with Toyota, and it produced 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. This engine mated to a six-speed manual as standard, but there was an optional six-speed automatic. Unlike all other modern-day Subarus, the BRZ delivered power only to its rear wheels.
