Quick Look

The 2016 Subaru BRZ, though lacking in interior revision, clearly boasts a stylish and head-turning outer appearance that is sure to keep up with competitors like the Scion FR-S and Honda CR-Z. This sport coupe, however, is further endowed with some great technology features that are designed to keep you assisted and engaged while driving this fast car. As such, the 2.0-litre flat-four engine under the hood is very impressive, delivering 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque on a six-speed automatic transmission.




Full Review

The 2016 Subaru BRZ is sleek and refined in terms of outward appearance, and further keeps a decently comfortable cabin for your leisure. But overall, this vehicle is more oriented towards performance and functionality, boasting a minimalist cabin with updated technology features and a great engine that produces some serious horsepower. As it stands, the Subaru BRZ is a worthy contender amidst the sport segment, courageously competing with the Scion FR-S and Honda CR-Z.

This sport coupe takes on some modern design cues in this years upgrade, keeping its classic sports car proportions but adding some edge and flare in terms of style. The new Subaru, in keeping with its design language, feels closer to the ground with a lower stance and lower grille that rests below the headlights. It further stands out with flared fender lines and a long hood. Rounding out the rear end is a blacked-out valance and dual exhausts.

On the inside of this attractive vehicle is a low slung, but simplistic cabin that values functionality above all else, as is common with Subaru vehicles. The front seats are comfortable and decently spacious but this room diminishes in the rear seats, which seem to be sized more for storage space. The seats can further be lined with Alcantara leather upholstery, but this is complemented by a slight silver plastic trim that feels like its lacking in quality. There is some soft-touch material adorning the door panels and dashboard, but this too is limited.

Technology comprises the majority of this year’s updates for the sport coupe, which boasts a new 6.2-inch display amidst the centre stack and hosts Subaru’s StarLink infotainment system. The system effectively bundles HD radio, navigation, Bluetooth and a standard rear view camera, but unfortunately this is the extent of infotainment features. One nifty aspect of the display, however, allows a split screen view between audio and navigation. Other features include dual-zone climate control, heated seats and a rear spoiler.

The engine under the hood carries over unchanged from the outgoing model, with a 2.0-litre flat-four delivering 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. Running on rear-wheel drive and standard six-speed automatic transmission, this vehicle returns 11.3 litres per 100 kilometres city and 8.3 litres per 100 kilometres highway. As expected, this Subaru scarcely includes extravagant safety features, with antilock brakes and stability and traction control comprising the majority of its suite.

All in all, the 2016 Subaru BRZ is one of the sportiest coupes on the market, especially when it comes to looks and engine performance. If you’re looking for an attractive vehicle with some great comfort and technology, this might be what you’re looking for.

Power and Performance:

While we've long harbored hopes that Subaru will put one of its turbocharged engines under the hood, for now, we're satisfied with the 2015 Subaru BRZ's standard engine: a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder producing 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the engine's horizontally opposed layout, the Subaru BRZ boasts an extremely low center of gravity, which means more of its weight is closer to the ground. That enhances the sports car's handling abilities. Engine power is sent to the rear wheels via a standard 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic transmission.

Interiors and Special Features:

Front and center (literally) on the interior upgrade list for the BRZ is the availability of Subaru’s Starlink infotainment system with a 6.2-inch display, HD radio, satellite radio, a single-disc CD player (yes, they still make those), and the usual Bluetooth/iPod/USB/aux input action. Also new for 2016 is a standard rear-view camera.
