The #SubaruBRZ was always an outlier in the #Subaru lineup. As the company's only RWD car, its bespoke chassis, high-revving engine, and near perfect 50/50 weight distribution made it a huge hit for enthusiasts looking for an entry-level sports car with a big tuning potential. For 2022, the long-awaited second generation #BRZ is here, it gets a new 2.4L NA F-4 with up to 228 HP and 184 lb-ft of torque. Subaru has also given the BRZ a new design inside and out and when it goes on sale next Fall, pricing shouldn't stray too far from the current models under $30k base price.

    A brand new sports car doesn’t come around very often. Especially an affordable one like the BRZ, expect to see Toyota unveil the new 86 very soon. We’re looking forward to seeing how that new 2.4L feels, do you believe Subaru should have gone the turbo route with a higher price tag? Or are you happy they elected to leave it naturally aspirated?

      @Mario Eid yes I do adding a little bit more power would be nice as well especially hitting corners better acceleration out of corners

      @Darrell Willis do you think the same about the miata? It would definitely be nice with more power but thats besides the point of a car like this

      @M G a turbo does not add $13k to the price of a car. Especially when it's a parts bin conversion

    Not a fan of it's looks. I feel last gen looked distinct in a good way. Hope Toyota did some style changes on this design.

    The 8" screen looks like one of those old aftermarket stereo installations from 80's. It seems to have been attached to the dash as an afterthought & doesn't fit or flow at all into the center console below or the horiz dash to the right. This issue is so glaring considering how well the rest of the car is designed. I'm surprised the reviewer didn't comment on this poor dash design.

    i wonder if they're not letting other people drive it who are youtubers because it still has torque dip. as soon as we all hear that, the preorders will get canceled.

    bruhhhh WHY did they do it again. it needs the turbo. the torque figures are too low. it would be so nice with 30 to 70 more hp and 50-100 more torque

    • Avery Loinette
      Avery Loinette

      you can literally see the torque figures drop in the high end at 7:34 pretty disappointed they don't have a turbo option. I'm trying to understand why there isn't a turbo, is the manual not strong enough for more power?

    Subaru needs to start making practical sport cars like Kia Stinger, Series 6 Grand Coupe, A5 hatch... Who are they targeting with this 2 seater thing, puberty boys who can’t afford them?

    The first car that popped in my head when I saw the rear, was the Acura NSX. Definitely a huge improvement as far as looks, but again very disappointing that there is no WRX & STI version. I think, as a lot of other enthusiasts that if Subaru came with an STI version it would have made an amazing car and a lot more would be attracted to purchase it.

    6:50 A BRZ / GT-86 buyer is really going to care about having a large LED screen display? Tech should be at a relative minimum. Please Subaru.....These aren't pretetnious "look-at-what-I-can-lease" cars to to impress your equally pretetnious neighbor. Make these cars simple enough so I can still own it and drive it 20 years from now, without a bunch of glitching out-of-date software driven components!

    Seems as if Subaru is in the power mode, first the Crosstrek and now the BRZ. Now having flogged a BRZ limited performance package around Buttonwillow raceway many times, I can say that power isn't really a big issue on track as I'm able to harass multiple other big power cars. On the street or highway is were the lil BRZ feels like it needs a little more. Now I would like to see how the improvements affected the handling as there are a few shortcomings with the old model that hopefully Subaru addressed with stiffer anti roll bars or shock dampening changes.

    How much tuning can you do with an NA car unless you want to go down the slippery slope of slapping a turbo on there.

    Wow. 0.4L and only 28 more horses. Should've kept the old engine, put in a small turbo churning out an extra 30bhp. Would've addressed the torque dip in the mid as well.

    224HP is just not that much from a 2.4 l flat four. Compared to the recently introduced Toyota Yaris GR which makes 261HP from a 1.5L turbo 3 cylinder.

  • Corey Becraft
    Corey Becraft

    They can sell the wrx for 28k with a turbo but not the brz its just marketing that Toyota probably won't allow although I don't think a turbo is the answer I think it needs a flat 6 personally.

  • Dark Light

  • Lifted_Above

    So they removed the turbo, so to speak, from the 2.4L. Let's hope they didn't remove any of the durability of the force fed engine design. The last gen BRZ/86 required some upgrades to make the 2.0 actually strong for force feeding. And if the previous gen is any indication of actual running characteristics, the "power/torque" graph on the display does NOT show a nasty torque dip. Thank goodness. The design of the new car is quite stunning. I like it a lot and I think it will age very well. Screw the critics, they'll never be satisfied.
