Subaru BRZ 300x199 Subaru BRZ 2013 Performance Review

The 2013 BRZ is a top of the line vehicle that has been designed to be a 2 door 4 passenger coupe. Available in premium and limited edition models, this car is worth the price tag under the $30,000 mark. Subaru is known for drifting left and right with their reputation coming from WRC. Now, the Subaru BRZ is one of the cars that stepped away from the reputation of its company. Pegged at $25,495, what can you expect from this vehicle? For starters, it has a front engine design while the rear wheel pushes the car. Also, it makes use of the popular Subaru Boxer engine together with its vehicle stability control. If the hype Subaru tried to put on the 2013 Subaru BRZ was correct, it has to be one of the best that they’ve come up with.

Classic Subaru Handling

Subaru always wanted to sell sports cars. However, they focused mainly on rally cars. Now that they have the market for sports cars, they compromise number just to please the customers. In fact, you don’t expect the 2013 Subaru BRZ to be available in large numbers. This coupe has been dubbed by critics to having one of the best handlings. Probably taken from their notes during the WRC, the Subaru BRZ 2013 can easily be maneuvered especially on sharp corners. And what else can you ask from this vehicle? It is reactive, and it can definitely give you classic Subaru driving experience.

Fuel Economy

In terms of fuel efficiency, Subaru adopted the use of an electric engine. Unfortunately though, it is the very same reason why the center of gravity of the car is a bit off. Also, despite having an electric and a petrol engine, how come that the Subaru BRZ 2013 is still lacking in terms of torque? A lot of people are wondering just why is it that the Subaru BRZ still has a modest acceleration? With a 7400 rpm, this car is a great purchase. Also, since it weighs only around 2762 lbs, the 2013 BRZ is a lightweight vehicle that can easily be pushed by the 2.0 liter flat 4 Subaru Boxer engine.

A lot of people are thinking if the car is race ready? Despite only having a flat four engine, this car is efficiency at its finest. It proves how you don’t need to rev up the car to compensate for an old fashioned heavy chassis. Overall, the Subaru BRZ is a sport model that fairs well with most car enthusiast’s budget. If you are looking for a close comparison with the Subaru BRZ, the Miata is the closest model that you can get.

On Its Way to the US

Is the US ready for an affordable sports coupe? Are they prepared to handle an efficient straight four engine than a V8 engined muscle car? When it goes on sale, only then can we confirm if Subaru made the right choice with the BRZ 2013. If there is only one word that you can use for the Subaru BRZ 2013, it is “balance”.
