Current Model
Adhering to the same basic formula as its predecessor, the redesigned BRZ is all about affordable, accessible driving fun. It's a four-seat coupe that's designed to be just as engaging on the road as it is on the drive to the track.
A low center of gravity, a standard six-speed manual transmission, and a new 2.4-liter, 228-hp naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine contribute to the BRZ's ethos of balance over speed. A standard touch screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a usable trunk, and a tiny rear seat add a dash of practicality to a sporty car. In addition to the new engine, other changes for 2022 include updated exterior styling, a digital gauge cluster, and suspension and chassis tweaks. Subaru's EyeSight suite of active safety features is available on versions with automatic transmission.

2013-2020
2013 Redesign Year
Developed with Toyota, the BRZ is Subaru's first rear-wheel-drive sports car. It features a 200-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
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. Inside, the cabin is relatively plain, with well-bolstered front sport seats, but the stiff ride and elevated noise can be taxing. The vestigial rear seats are best suited for cargo. Early versions have a confounding radio, which was improved for 2016. Later versions also pack a bit more horsepower. The Scion FR-S, followed by Toyota 86 when the Scion brand was dropped, is essentially the same car.
