Overview Information

The Subaru BRZ is a small rear-wheel-drive sports car which was jointly developed between Toyota and Subaru. Variants are sold as the Scion FR-S in the US and the Toyota GT86 in other markets. The BRZ is a small coupe with seating for four passengers. Power is provided by a 2.0l horizontally opposed or boxer engine. All models are rear-wheel-drive for performance reasons, which makes the BRZ the only car without standard all-wheel-drive in Subaru's lineup. The closest competitive vehicle is the Nissan 370Z which is similar in size, but has a more powerful V6 engine and a significantly higher price tag.

What Changed:

The BRZ is a new rear-wheel-drive sports car. Jointly developed with Toyota, Subaru named their version BRZ which stands for "Boxer engine Rear-wheel-drive Zenith". A 2.0l boxer engine rated at 200-bhp is mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The low-slung coupe styling has 2+2 seating for four passengers.

Official Word:

The all-new, rear-wheel drive Subaru BRZ sports car made its United States debut today at the North American International Auto Show at Cobo Hall in Detroit. Arriving in Subaru dealerships this spring, the BRZ delivers pinpoint handling precision and an unmatched driving experience for sports car enthusiasts of all skill levels.
