About the Subaru BRZ
After many years of hype and planning, the Subaru BRZ made its long-awaited debut for the 2013 model year. This compact coupe sports car was developed in tandem with Toyota, sharing the same platform as the Toyota 86—and for many sports’ car enthusiasts, the BRZ was well worth the wait.
Offering seating for up to four people, the Subaru BRZ boasts incredible handling and maneuverability for a truly enjoyable drive. Meanwhile, even its base Premium trim is well appointed, featuring such standard equipment as summer performance tires, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a built-in navigation system on the 2016 model year. If you're looking for a compact coupe that's as stylish as it is fun to drive, don't overlook the Subaru BRZ.

Reviews for Subaru BRZ
A flashback to when cars were built for fun
The BRZ is a trip back to when cars were built with the purpose to put a smile on your face, but with modern reliability, safety, and amenities. With a stick shift, this car feels totally analogue (especially with traction control off). No need for fancy 360 cameras, hill-start assist, blind spot detection, or any of the other distractions you get from your new BMWs. Just raw, analog, honest-to-god rear-wheel-drive fun.
- Ride and Handling: Incredibly low center of gravity, even on stock springs. Quick steering ratio as well.
- Fuel Economy: ~26 mpg in Atlanta traffic
- Cargo Space: Surprising amount of cargo space for a sports coupe with the back seats folded down
- Visibility: Forward-facing visibility is GREAT, but it is lacking when reversing or changing lanes. Back-seat windows are pretty much non-existent.
- Power: 200 horsepower is more than enough for a car this size, but unfortunately the BRZ is lacking in the torque department. Especially with the factory torque dip at around 5k rpms.
Quick but carmax was taxing.
It’s really light, agile, quick. Not fast, but quick. Really easy to drift, they have a big aftermarket for this car. It’s not super fancy but it still turns heads.
- Ride and Handling: Probably better than anything you’ve driven.
- Seat Comfort: Buckets are great.
- Power: Decent power but could be improved with a tune.
- Cabin Noise: It’s a light car, you can hear everything.
- Fuel Economy: I average 21.9 mpg and it’s 93 only unless you do an E85 tune
- Value: They’re usually cheap but carmax was definitely taxing.
I love JDM
Very fun to drive, lightweight, nimble, easy to steer, it goes where you want it go, controllable. It may lack power but the aftermarket parts are endless for this car. Highly customizable to your own liking as long as you got the money.
- Styling: It has a very sleek and modern design. True sports car vibe without exaggerating a lot.
- Ride and Handling: This is second to none, this car really epitomizes Japanese mantra of lightweight rear wheel drive 4 cylinder cars that go around a track faster than anything else.
- Dashboard: One of my favorites is the dashboard because of it's simple yet elegant and sporty feel everywhere from the steering wheel to the dash itself with leather touch and nicely stiched accent.
- Power: Power is underrated in this car especially considering how well it will bend the curves but pure straightline speed really is lacking.
- Fuel Economy: I thought the fuel economy could be a little better for a car with small engine and light body.
- Technology and Entertainment: Lack of Android auto or apple car play is a little disappointing. Also the standard stereo is nothing to write home about.
