2013 Subaru BRZ Reviews, Specs, and Pricing

2013 Subaru BRZ Reviews, Specs, and Pricing

For the first time since 1997, when the Ford Contour and Mercury Mystique shared, one car sold under two different marques has claimed a single 10Best award.

The 2013 Subaru BRZ is a compact rear-wheel-drive sports car that exists solely to engage its driver and deliver high-performance thrills on the streets and at the racetrack. That##Q##s the kind of simple mission statement we can get behind.

The differences between the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ are some exterior colors and trim, and the BRZ comes stand­ard with a navigation unit, equating to a $1310 premium over the $24,955 FR-S.

Critics of the ­Scibaru are quick to point out its unrefined and buzzy shortcomings.

2013 Subaru BRZTight steering, a well-sorted suspension and firm, capable brakes help the BRZ deliver ample dynamic fun, while a comparatively modest price tag makes that fun accessible to passionate drivers of common means The BRZ competes in the same rear-drive ring as the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang and Hyundai Genesis Coupe, but proves itself to be a formidable opponent with its lightweight body and high-strung attitude.

Driver hear the buzzing, and even a little interior rattling, as the backing track to a constant reminder that chassis development took the lead during this car##Q##s gestation.

A Subaru without all-wheel drive seems like sacrilege, but considering the kind of holy fun offered up by the 2013 BRZ we##Q##re willing to overlook its rear-drive sin. While it##Q##s a technical twin of the Scion FR-S, the BRZ adds a bit of luxury to the performance equation by offering a more upscale interior.

Electrically assisted steering that actually communicates and a chassis balance that ebbs and flows between understeer and oversteer with brake or throttle applications are hallmarks of its personality.

It is a lot like the Porsche B­oxster in that regard, but for about half the cost. With only 200 horses and a 6400-rpm torque peak, there##Q##s no power cushion to adjust the ­mid-corner pace. The Subion challenges drivers to maintain speed and when apex velocity is maxed out, so is the driver-satisfaction gauge.

Entertainment, value, and execution of the intended purpose are the 10Best commandments: This one (okay, two) nails ##Q##em all.

The base price for the Subaru BRZ Premium is $25,495, which is $23,855 less expensive than the average for all Coupe Cars.

Vehicle Type
This 2-Door Coupe seats 4 passengers. Available with RWD, the drivetrain in the 2013 BRZ Premium sends power to the wheels through a standard 6-speed Manual transmission.

Eye the all-new Subaru BRZ up and down and you might notice it bears a striking resemblance to the recently introduced Scion FR-S. The fact is, besides some minor details, the 2013 BRZ and FR-S are identical twins (we##Q##ll leave you to figure out which is the evil one). A long hood, abbreviated trunk, and a squat, planted stance all hint at the BRZ##Q##s sporting credentials. In person Subaru##Q##s coupe has a more charming presence than in pictures due to its small, athletic dimensions.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
