In a world where turbo dominates, both in industry and in sport, it is sometimes a revelation to take another cheap toy, with atmospheric engine and good technical development. The Subaru BRZ is one of those ...

Providing high expectations for its exterior appeal

BRZ, three letters with a meaning: Boxer ... Rear-wheel drive ... Zenit. Enough ingredients to guarantee sensations, although a little arrogance is needed for that zenith. But we will certainly not blame the Subaru, because the four-cylinder boxer engine is an engine that instantly enchants your heart. You might think that nothing happens under 3,000 rpm, although in reality the Subaru also has enough torque in the battle to still move smoothly in traffic. You can feel its potential from 4,000 rpm. Somewhat higher, that typical Boxer sound pops up, which is so difficult to describe but is addictive.

At first sight the Subaru BRZ delivers that visual appeal that all the sports car fans want to see , its coupe body with elongated chest, cabin thrown back and sensual fall of the roof towards the back makes us want it. In addition to the aforementioned and striking silhouette, there is nothing extra or outstanding except for the rear that has a beautiful spoiler and a promising air diffuser adorned by a pair of exhaust exits and is that you do not need more than that, here less It is more and that we have just analyzed its exterior aesthetics.

Interior with emphasis on driving

Opening the doors of this coupe, we find features to give rise to two people since the seats in the back are very narrow and only children or people of very low stature can use them on short trips. In terms of equipment, the vestments stand out in Alcantara and leather with red seams in seats, lever, handbrake and doors.

The interior of the Subaru BRZ 2017 receives us with a multifunction steering wheel more sporty, and not only for its smaller diameter -3 mm-, the BRZ logo embroidered on the backrests of the front seats -situated somewhat lower and with new upholsteries- , the area of ​​the dashboard in front of the passenger upholstered in Alcantara or the leather instrumentation chapel with red stitching, as well as the majority of seams of all the elements of the passenger compartment. But the most attractive "gadget" for purists is represented by the right clock of the instrumentation. Thus, if the control panel is reserved for the revolution counter and the left one for the speedometer, this one, as a multifunction screen, with a 4.2 "color TFT display,it allows to select information like the one of the trip computer , but also between parameters like an indicator of G forces, the drawing of the power and torque curves , a triple meter with the information about water, oil and voltage temperature or a chronometer to be able to measure our time per lap if we use it in a circuit.

Pure handling

You have to anticipate it; getting behind the wheel of the Subaru BRZ will not give us in the first instance the sensations that most of us would expect and that is that, despite the four-cylinder boxer engine 2.0 atmospheric that delivers 200 HP and 151 lb-ft of torque and a total weight of the car of 1.265 kilograms, the first thing we would expect would be accelerations of those that invite you to sink your foot in the accelerator again and again.

No, the Subaru BRZ and its 200 HP brought to the rear axle through a six-speed manual box (there is the option of an automatic but who would want to order a beer without alcohol or a decaffeinated coffee), do not accelerate 0 to 60 times in the way we would expect, not even offer a sports exhaust sound that erice the skin but once living longer with the car and understanding it through the days, is when you begin to understand the meaning of this small Japanese car.

After driving it for longer we realize that the fun is there for the purists, for those who like a firm suspension, a touch of the lever somewhat rough but at the same time precise, a forceful direction, a linear rpm rise in which keeping the engine turns in the middle - high will be essential to squeeze all the power of the engine.

It is in these details where the essence of the car lies, in enjoying pure driving. From sitting in the seat that is placed as low as possible to feel everything that happens underneath it to face the curves in a way that lower one or two relationships will be necessary to have the engine ready to leave them with a slight tail of the rear axle.

In the Subaru BRZ the fun is in that pile of details that have always characterized sports cars but sometimes we do not value to let ourselves be carried away by a deafening sound of the engine, a whistle of the turbocharger or a hell of an acceleration.

In addition, these seats allow a very low driving position, very sporty and in keeping with the style of the car . Otherwise the control panel is easy to read, with three clocks indicating speed, revolutions and the rest of the indications in the small clock on the right.

Finally, the Subaru BRZ tires have a 17-inch multi-spoke design that combines metallic and dark colors. Five double spokes are those that have more prominence, leaving in the background to other five spokes of finer design.

The sharp lines of the rest of the bodywork and the rear windows with very angular shapes give rise to rear wings that have great strength in the set with a very muscular and aggressive appearance in the rear three-quarter view.

It is definitely an attractive car, sporty and that perfectly fulfills its mission to dazzle the authentic burned of the four wheels that want a car with which in addition to being able to shoot daily, be able to show their neighborhood and make hands in your weekend getaways to your favorite roads.
