All new Subaru BRZ revealed with manual and 228 horsepower
Here's everything there is to know about the new Subaru BRZ!
Subaru just unveiled the new BRZ for the 2022 model year. Luckily, they've kept the soul of the BRZ alive for the second generation.
Starting with the basics, the Subaru BRZ has a new engine: a 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated four banger, which produces 228 horsepower, up 28 horsepower from the previous generation. It also makes 184 lb-ft of torque, a 15% increase from the previous generation. They've paired the new Boxer engine with the legendary six-speed manual transmission. If a manual transmission doesn't suit your fancy, a six-speed automatic will also be available. The 2nd generation BRZ keeps its rear wheel drive setup, and it also keeps its 2+2 seat arrangement. Weighing in at just shy of 2,900 pounds, the 2022 BRZ is the lightest rear-wheel drive 2+2 production car in the U.S. market.
A few other performance changes include a better center of gravity due to the placement of the engine, a 50% increase in torsional stiffness, and the ability to adjust the Stability Control to your desire, or just flat out turn it off. There's also a limited-slip differential standard on all BRZ models.
The BRZ will only be available in two trims, Premium and Limited. The interior has gotten a much needed refresh, and it now looks like it's actually meant to be sold in the now. The biggest assets to the new BRZ's interior are easily the new, grippy seats, and a new 8-inch infotainment system which comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Pricing isn't available at the time this article was published, but you can expect it to be around $30,000. The 2022 BRZ will be available in fall of 2021.
