The BRZ is designed to perform like a sports car should, with independent MacPherson struts in the front and an independent double wishbone suspension in the back.
The BRZ features a standard 6-speed fully-synchronized close-ratio manual transmission with short-throw shifter for precise control of gear selection.
An ultra-quick 13.1:1 steering ratio provides instantaneous response to driver input and an outstanding feel for the road. And the Torsen® limited-slip differential provides both improved grip and predictable behavior, even when pushed to the limit.
A naturally aspirated 2.0 liter horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER® engine is retuned to provide up to 205-hp, combining balance with power and efficiency. Direct- and port-injection technology provides more than 100 hp per liter without the need for turbocharging, while the Dual Active Valve Control System optimizes valve timing for maximum response all the way to the 7,400 RPM redline.
An extremely low and rearward engine placement means you get a sports car with optimal balance, an extremely low center of gravity, lightning reflexes, and exceptional rear-wheel-drive handling dynamics. The vehicle stability control system features a “track” mode for even more handling control when you need it.
See, and be seen, with standard LED running lights and headlights, and available LED fog lights. The standard LED taillights and aluminum rear spoiler will leave an impression on every driver you pass.
A low 2,785-lb base curb weight enhances reflexes and sharpens handling for an overall improved performance.
A STARLINK Multimedia system with standard Apple CarPlay™, Android™ Auto, and Pandora® app integration™, plus SiriusXM® All Access Radio™ is newly available on the 2018 BRZ. Wireless pairing and hands-free smartphone operation allow for safe and easy connection to your favorite apps and content. Access news, navigation, music, podcasts, audiobooks, and more through available STARLINK apps, such as iHeartRadio® and Yelp. Plus, dual USB ports and a built-in, voice-activated navigation system powered by TomTom® are now available.
Heavily bolstered sport seats with ideal sports car positioning hold you comfortably in place for a more direct connection to the vehicle. Premium-quality materials throughout the interior create an environment that’s as soft to the touch as it is easy on the eyes.
The Keyless Access with Push-Button Start features touch-activated door unlock and one-touch start functions. It allows you to unlock, enter, and start the car without the key ever leaving your pocket.
EyeSight® monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. The Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force in emergency situations. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.
A standard rear-vision camera enhances rear visibility when backing up. Its display includes guide lines to help you see the vehicle's path and judge distance to other objects.
