Subaru BRZ Overview
Developed with Toyota, Subaru's first RWD sports car features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic. Handling is super responsive, with impressive agility. In corners, the BRZ turns in promptly, with virtually no body lean. The steering is quick and well weighted, with decent feedback. At its limits, the BRZ understeers more than its mechanical sibling, the Toyota FR-S. That difference makes it more forgiving but slightly less rewarding. The ride is also a bit more jittery. The cabin is relatively plain, with well-bolstered sport seats, but the ride and elevated noise can be taxing. Reliability is well below average and we can't recommend the BRZ.
