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 with sharp handling that makes it just as engaging on the road as it is on a race track.
A low center of gravity, standard six-speed manual transmission, and new 2.4-liter, 228-hp naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine powering the rear wheels contribute to the BRZ's ethos of balance over outright 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 this sporty car. In addition to the new engine, other changes included 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 the 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.
