Subaru BRZ

Mittwoch, 10. Mai. 2017

The BRZ offers a pure driving experience. No frills, no elaborate electronic technology. 53 percent of the car's 1,212 kilograms rests on the front axle, 47 percent on the rear. The engine's low center of gravity increases the car's stability. This sports car is great fun on curvy, open roads -- only flying could be better.

There are few options with the Subaru. The BRZ only has one chassis, one engine, two transmissions and two trim packages to choose from. Its engine has an output of 147 kilowatts, but the maximum torque of 205 Newton meters is not achieved until the engine reaches 6,400 rpms. This purist race car is affordable, too. The Sport version costs just over 32-thousand euros in Germany.

The Subaru BRZ has the ideal proportions of a classic sports car: its windshield is placed behind a long hood and the rear is short.

The diffuser has an integrated dual exhaust. The flat construction of the boxer engine keeps the front low.

The cockpit isn't crowded with levers and knobs. That fits the BRZ's pragmatic style and focuses concentration on what's most important: driving.

Thanks to the low bucket seats, driver and passenger sit tight.

The Subaru BRZ is fine for everyday use, as long as you don't expect it to be the primary vehicle for a family of four. Because the back seat's about as roomy as the rear shelf in other cars! A base model Subaru BRZ starts at just under 30-thousand euros in Germany.
