Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Subaru’s BRZ is one of the most agile cars on the road, handling with a light, maneuverable feel. Few sports cars convey the sensations of steering and cornering it delivers to the driver without much filter.

For a car with such apparent potential, the free-revving engine comes across as eager, but overtaxed. Power that arrives high in the rev range might sound like fun, but it’s not much help for either fuel economy or acceleration. When it comes to reaching 60 mph, the BRZ trails nearly all competitors .With its short, sharp throws and tight ratios, the 6-speed manual gearbox is the best choice for performance.

Subaru’s “flat” cylinder configuration gives the BRZ a low center of gravity, which keeps it surprisingly level while cornering. Meanwhile, quick steering enhances the feeling of immediacy when threading through curves.

Ride comfort isn’t a strong point, as the BRZ fails to cope well with broken pavement and bothersome bumps. Comfort declines further with the optional Performance Package’s stiffer springs.

Premium gasoline is required, and fuel economy ranks only average. With manual shift, the BRZ is EPA-rated at 21/29 mpg City/Highway, or 24 mpg Combined. Automatic raises the estimate considerably, to 24/33/27 mpg.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Sharp looks are a result of the BRZ’s just-right proportions. Unlike some rivals, Subaru’s low-slung sport coupe looks as light in weight as it is.

Though admittedly inspired by sports cars from the past, the BRZ is sharply sculpted and boasts such modern elements as LED headlights. The elegant roofline and flared fenders make the coupe an outlier in the Subaru showroom.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Uncluttered and smart, the BRZ cabin relies on straightforward design with little clutter or fuss.

Front seats are exactly what a serious and enthusiastic driver would applaud in a low-slung sports car. Even tall drivers can appreciate the spacious and accommodating cockpit.

Don’t even think about carrying more than one passenger, though. In the BRZ, performance takes precedence over comfort, and only the front passenger is destined to experience the latter. The rear seats are just barely big enough for small passengers.

Those back seats serve far better as a shelf to hold small items. With seatbacks folded down, they can complement the tiny trunk, which holds a mere 6.9 cubic feet of cargo.

Limited-trim models feature deeper, Alcantara-upholstered bucket seats that almost hug one’s body as the BRZ snakes its way through curvy stretches. Even without that improved bolstering, the front seats are helpfully supportive.


New Car Test Drive

The 2019 Subaru BRZ delivers sports-car bona fides, with the usual demerits, including trunk space and a minimal back seat. Even so, ardent sports-car fans will appreciate the BRZ’s uncommon agility. Other sports cars offer comparably sharp looks and stirring road behavior, but they cost far more than a BRZ.
