The Subaru BRZ sports car has been recently taken around for a drive by the British journalists at the Autocar Magazine.
After testing the Toyota GT 86 not too long ago, the guys at Autocar Magazine have decided to take on its “sister”, the Subaru BRZ too, and what came out can be seen in the video posted below this article. As a small reminder, the Subaru BRZ has a starting price of 26,000 pounds in Great Britain and sales of the Japanese sports car will begin in May. The BRZ will be offered in three trim levels, including a track-day special, and the top of the line will come with LED daytime running lights, MP3 player connectivity, climate control, leather seats, cruise control, torque-sensing limited slip differential, front, side and curtain airbags and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Under the hood, the Subaru BRZ is coming with the same engine as the Toyota GT 86, the 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol unit, which is developing a total output of 197 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 151 lb-ft available at 6,600 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission in standard, which is sending the power to the rear wheels, but a six-speed automatic can also be available as an option.
