About the 2013 Subaru BRZ

Known in the car world for being the twin to the Scion FR-S, the 2013 Subaru BRZ is a slightly more amped-up version, offering a car that is enjoyable to drive, lightweight, and a simple enough design that it doesn’t break the bank. Although on friendly terms for years, Subaru and Toyota shocked the car world when they joined forces to create a sporty venture, which resulted in Scion, and, therefore, also the Subaru BRZ. While fans of both companies are starting to close their jaws, the Subaru BRZ is turning heads. And for good reason. Essentially the exact same car as the Scion FR-S, it comes as no surprise then that the Subaru BRZ drives the same, if not identical. The biggest differences between the two cars are the features included and the appearance of the cabin thanks to the slightly upgraded materials in the Subaru. The Scion FR-S and the Subaru BRZ might pass as identical twins on the road, but they are vastly different from their competitors. At this price point (base models start at $26,265), nothing can compete. Looking at the exterior of the Subaru BRZ, you can quickly see that its design has been heavily influenced by Japanese aesthetics, making it a head-turning car that stands out among others. The biggest difference between the Subaru and the Scion when it comes to physical appearance is the grille; the Scion comes off looking less than thrilled while the Subaru looks ready for fun. In this partnership between Toyota and Subaru, Subaru took the reigns on the engine department - a wise choice because drivers enjoy the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the same one that is found in every other Subaru model. Weighing in at a lean 2,762 pounds, the 2013 BRZ has 200 horsepower, making it quick, although not the fastest of the Subaru lineup. Drivers might notice that the 151 pound/foot torque peak is only moderate when compared to other sports cars. What did Toyota add to this partnership? The unique fuel system, which features two injectors for each cylinder, is owned by Toyota. The benefit? It allows a high compression ratio for premium gas. And while the BRZ is considered a sports car, it doesn’t really start to feel like one until it’s really turned out. This is especially noticeable on models with automatic transmission, which feel slow to wake up. As the revs start to increase, the engine roars, but not necessarily in a good way. Many reviewers actually found this over-the-top noise irritating. Subaru fans and sports car enthusiast in general were underwhelmed by the lack of power featured in the 2013 BRZ. Subaru (and Toyota and Scion) have one word for them: patience. Word on the street is a more amped-up version of the car is coming, they may just have to wait a year or two. Standard in the 2013 BRZ is the six-speed manual transmission. A must-have for all sports cars. The best part about this standard transmission is that it’s really good. Not only does it offer the driver short throws and clear gates for precise execution, but it boasts fast sprints. One test showed that the manual transmission in this car was able to record an impressive 6.2 second time for the 0 to 60 test. (The automatic transmission clocked 7.7 in the same trial.) A six-speed automatic transmission will cost you an extra $1,100, but comes with a choice of Drive, Sport, and Snow modes. This transmission allows you to take control of shifting by using the steering wheel paddles or the gear-selector lever if you so choose.
