New Subaru BRZ Introduced

The sports car will be available only in the US.

Subaru has introduced the new BRZ. The manufacturer describes the upgrade as a change of generation, but the coupe has retained the same architecture and recognizable silhouette. Among the innovations are a fresh design, a modified chassis, modern equipment and a more powerful engine.

The design of the sports car has become more aggressive. Its more relief body has got new air ducts, and the rear end is now crowned with a larger ducktail spoiler. Changes have also affected bumpers, headlights and a radiator grille.

The “twin” of the Toyota GT86 has grown in length up to 4,265 mm (+31 mm). The width has remained the same at 1,776 mm, while the height has been reduced by just 1 mm to 1,311 mm. At the same time, the weight of the BRZ with an automatic gearbox has increased to 1,307 kg (+7.7 kg).

The interior has an 8-inch Starlink infotainment system that works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 7-inch digital dashboard. The finish with contrasting red stitching refers to the previous BRZ. The list of equipment also includes EyeSight (a set of safety systems).

The platform of the coupe has also been inherited from its predecessor. However, the company has upgraded the chassis for the new coupe, strengthening it by 50 percent and improving cornering. There are still a McPherson front suspension and a rear double wishbone suspension.

The former 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine (205 hp) is replaced with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder Subaru Boxer (231 hp / 249 Nm). It comes with both a six-speed automatic gearbox, which switches to a lower gear faster in the new sport mode, and a six-speed manual transmission. Thanks to the lower engine mounting points, the engineers were able to reduce the center of gravity. Performance indicators of the new model have not yet been disclosed.
