Unlike any other Subaru, the BRZ is built as a rear wheel drive. This gives the most optimum weight balance possible, maximising your fun with its superior handling.
Low is the New High
The BRZ, being a pure sports car, optimizes the position of engine and transmission to lower the centre of gravity and achieve an excellent weight distribution of 53:47 (front:rear).
The effect is to minimise weight transfer when cornering, braking and accelerating to help keep all four wheels firmly planted on the road surface. This improves grip, creates sharper steering response and increases handling stability. More driving confidence and full on fun – the essence of what makes BRZ very definitely a Subaru.
The Subaru BRZ is powered by our famous horizontally–opposed Boxer engine. This engine is a major reason why BRZ can sit low and grip the road.
The high-revving 2.0-litre four cylinder Boxer engine features both direct and port injection technology, producing 152kW1 of power and 212Nm1 of torque, for a throaty engine roar that’s pure adrenaline-pumping fun. To deliver dynamic sports car driving, the two transmission types focus on delivering a rewarding shift feel and quick response. You’ll be grinning from ear to ear.

Get ready for suspension tuned to deliver extreme handling excellence. Prepare for the kind of total confidence you only feel in a true sports car.
The front suspension has been designed to produce a direct, sharp response. While the rear suspension increases a feel for the road, making it easier for the driver to gauge rear wheel grip, moment to moment.
Rear Wheel Drive
Subaru engineers love a challenge. So when given the opportunity to design a classic rear wheel drive sports car they jumped at the chance. The result is an exhilarating drive that’s a whole lot of fun.
