Fun at its heart.
New SUBARU BOXER Engine
A new-generation SUBARU BOXER engine powers the SUBARU BRZ to new heights of precision and excitement. We’ve placed this 2.0-litre engine lower, made it more compact and moved it closer to the driver. It’s the first engine of its kind to feature direct and port fuel injection technology, which enhances both its responsiveness and fuel efficiency. It’s a one-of-a-kind design that offers a new kind of satisfaction.
2.0-Litre DOHC SUBARU BOXER
This 200 PS engine loves to be revved. With a high redline, a flat torque curve and 100 PS per litre, you’ll be sure there’s plenty of power no matter what RPM you’re at. You’ll have less impact on the environment, and more excitement at your disposal.
MAX OUTPUT: 147 kW (200 PS) / 7,000 rpm
MAX TORQUE: 205 Nm (20.9 kgfm) / 6,400 – 6,600 rpm
FUEL ECONOMY*1: 7.8 lit./100km (6MT), 7.1 lit./100km (6AT)
CO2 EMISSIONS*1: 181 g/km (6MT), 164 g/km (6AT)
Designed from the ground up to be driven all-out.
Low Centre of Gravity
We challenged ourselves to give the SUBARU BRZ as low a centre of gravity as possible, because that means the most exciting handling possible. Every element of the car, from the flat, horizontally-opposed engine design to the roofline to the seat positioning, help give the SUBARU BRZ one of the lowest centres of gravity of any mainstream vehicle available.
Sports Car Drivetrain
Laid out symmetrically, the SUBARU BOXER engine puts the crankshaft perfectly in line with the driveshaft for tremendous stability and dynamic agility. And the rear-wheel drive configuration allowed us to move the engine farther back and gives you precise control over your cornering attitude. We combined this agile platform with a newly designed quick-ratio steering system that’s tuned to react with astounding precision and immediacy to your input.
