Introduction

The Subaru BRZ is a fun, affordable, rear-wheel-drive sport coupe that’s small, nimble and tossable. It’s fun and easy to drive on a race track.

For 2015, Subaru BRZ gets a revised suspension that makes it even more stable in hard cornering. Also new is the 2015 BRZ Series Blue edition, which will be limited to 1,000 units in the U.S. Other minor changes for the 2015 BRZ lineup include a shark fin antenna that replaces the outgoing pole-style antenna, and a revised interior trim.

Built in cooperation with Toyota, the Subaru BRZ is very similar to the Scion FR-S.

Subaru BRZ is powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder boxer engine that makes 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. The standard 6-speed manual gearbox is way fun, carefully designed like the rest of the car to be that way. There’s an optional 6-speed automatic, which comes with paddle shifters.

Like the FR-S, the seats and the engine of the BRZ sit lower than most cars, resulting in a low center of gravity that equates to excellent handling with very little body roll. The suspension is firm and hugs the road, though some may find it a little harsh for road trips or daily driving.

Rear-wheel drive is a modern first for Subaru, which has dedicated itself to the beauty of all-wheel drive. With no drivetrain to the front wheels, the engine could be located farther rearward, which means better balance and handling. And the BRZ’s light weight of 2762 pounds, using high-tensile steel in the frame with an aluminum hood, adds to the car’s agility. In short, it is a classic front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports machine.

Skilled, experienced drivers can throw the BRZ around aggressively, thanks to non-intrusive stability control that has five levels, including one for track driving. The summer performance tires that come standard would handle the track just fine, but enthusiasts who want to swap out for sticker tires will be pleased to know the BRZ’s trunk, with its fold-flat seat, will hold a set of four mounted tires.

Styling of the Subaru BRZ is attractive but not over the top, and some of the eye-popping colors available on the Scion FR-S are not offered.

Back seats are small and are best left to children or gear. This is primarily a two-seat car. The interior is simple and comfortable, with the focus clearly on the driving. Fabric seats are rugged and stylish, with excellent bolstering. Alloy pedals and red-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are cool. We especially liked the tachometer mounted in center that includes a digital readout for speed that’s very easy to read.

However, the Subaru BRZ, like the Scion FR-S, lacks certain convenience features such as steering-wheel mounted controls, and some buttons on the dash don’t light up at night. That means extra distraction when trying to change the station or toggle through menu items. Also, the touchscreen looks more like an aftermarket edition, and the interface isn’t easy to use.

EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2015 Subaru BRZ is 22/30/25 mpg City/Highway/Combined, and 25/34/28 mpg for the efficient 6-speed automatic. One important thing to note is these numbers are achieved using Premium gasoline, which lessens the BRZ’s overall affordability over time. But if you want a sports car, you’re likely willing to buy Premium gas.

The most direct competitor to the 2015 Subaru BRZ is the Scion FR-S. Although it’s a convertible, the Mazda Miata MX-5 is the closest rival when it comes to the track, though we think the BRZ and FR-S handle just as well. Base models of the pony cars are around the same price point: Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and the much larger Dodge Challenger.

Lineup

The 2015 Subaru BRZ comes in three models: Premium, Limited and Series Blue. All use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and are available with a six-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic, with the exception of the Series Blue, which comes exclusively with a stick shift.

The BRZ Premium ($25,695) includes manually operated air conditioning, fabric sport seats, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, keyless entry, cruise control, power windows/door locks/mirrors, a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped shift knob, an eight-speaker sound system with CD player, HD radio, satellite radio, auxiliary audio jack and USB port, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 6.1-inch touchscreen with navigation and voice control, a fold-flat rear seatback, a limited-slip rear differential, automatic bi-xenon headlights, LED running lights and 17-inch alloy wheels with summer tires.

BRZ Limited ($27,695) upgrades to dual-zone automatic climate control and simulated suede and leather upholstery and adds pushbutton start, heated front seats and mirrors, foglamps and a rear spoiler.

BRZ Series Blue (available in a blue or white exterior color) includes everything found on the Limited model plus a unique black-and blue interior color scheme with accent stitching, additional aerodynamics, black wheels and red calipers.

Safety features include dual-stage frontal airbags, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, electronic stability control and traction control, ABS with electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist and brake override, which cuts the engine power when the brake pedal and gas pedal are both pressed.

Walkaround

The Subaru BRZ is handsome but might not turn heads, at least not in plain silver like our test model. Scion has a couple colors for the FR-S that Subaru doesn’t have, and colors on this car make a big difference.

As the BRZ was developed in partnership with Toyota, we’re told the exterior design was inspired by the Toyota 2000GT of the late 1960s. And while the BRZ lacks the long hood and relatively short passenger compartment of the old car, one can see that it echoes the 2000 GT’s long, sleek shape and its pagoda-style roof.

It’s super low, with a roof height of only 50.6 inches, or .8 inches lower than that Porsche Cayman. It has a big hexagon mouth, with the corners trimmed. HID headlamps are sharp triangles pointing toward the grille, like pizza slices smoothed out so they don’t look like pizza slices. There are plastic pretend air intakes at the corners of the front fascia, surrounding the foglamps on the BRZ Limited, but standing alone and making a statement (this car is cheap) on the (oxymoronic) standard Premium.

The roof has a wide groove, and that adds distinction; it spreads out, so by the time it reaches the top of the rear window, most of the roof is groove. The sideview mirrors are sharpened, which is also neat, but it would be neater if they weren’t black on the bottom half. There are some awful gray or black plastic things just forward of the sideview mirrors.

There’s a Subaru six-star ornament on the nose, so you know what it is.

At the tail, the lamps are round red LED lights that look good when they’re lit up, with white wings that don’t look so good, hiding amber turn signals. Twin tailpipes come out of the black diffuser that has vertical ridges that appear to have been copied from the Batmobile. Between the pipes there’s a red triangle reflector that somebody forgot to remove from the European version (where it’s a foglight), and a white backup light.

Interior

The cockpit of the Subaru BRZ is plain and simple. It has most of what you need, including navigation as standard equipment. But it lacks features found standard on most cars at the same price these days, like steering wheel-mounted audio and phone controls, which can be distracting. We also found the voice activation to be inaccurate and frustrating.

We like the rugged fabric seats; they have an appropriate look and feel, and the Limited model uses Alcantara-like upholstery with leather trim. The bolstering is good and tight. The three-spoke steering wheel is leather-wrapped with red stitching, and looks cool. So do the alloy pedals, including the dead pedal that’s very functional and great to have in a car like this.

Gauge-wise, there’s a big tachometer in the center, with a small shift light on the left side of the dash; not the best place but better than nothing. The speedometer to the left isn’t always easy to read, but there’s also a digital display with your numbers in the middle of the tachometer.

The standard screen is small, 6.5 inches, and looks more like an aftermarket addition than the beautiful touchscreen displays we see from some other car companies. In addition, the menus are not always intuitive, and it can take several steps to find a function.

Climate controls are three simple knobs. Two cupholders behind the leather-wrapped shift lever hold standard-sized bottles and cans. There’s good visibility out the rear window, although the center brake light is mounted on little legs that cause it to obstruct a bit in the rearview mirror. Much worse is the big blind spot from the sloping C pillar, when the driver looks over his or her shoulder.

As for the rear seats, they’re tiny and are best for carrying cargo or children. On the plus side, the BRZ offers respectable trunk space for its small size, measuring 6.9 cubic feet, which is generous compared with the Mazda Miata MX-5’s 5.3 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The Subaru BRZ is tossable, thanks to its quick steering and able Michelin summer performance tires. Acceleration is smooth, but in the low revs, it might not always get you there fast, especially at full throttle on a straight freeway on-ramp. But if you’re between curves on a two-lane road, acceleration is just right.

The two-liter flat-four engine is better in the higher revs and redlines at 7400. Beyond that, the rev limiter will kick in, and both you and the car will not be happy. Torque is only 151 pound-feet, peaking at a high 6400 rpm, but we never would have guessed. The torque feels more available than those numbers suggest.

Stability control was non invasive and has five different levels, including the most aggressive setting for the track. A Torsen limited slip differential helps give the inside rear wheel traction in corners, especially accelerating hard out of second-gear curves.

The manual gearbox has very short throws, and can feel notchy at first, but we got used to it after a while. Alas, we didn’t get a chance to drive a BRZ with the paddle-shifting 6-speed with sport mode and downshift blipping. We’d buy the manual, though. A word of caution, though, the BRZ doesn’t have hill-hold assist, so you’ll have to use the handbrake the old-fashioned way when stopped on a steep incline.

The brakes do the job quite nicely. We used them good and hard, and liked the firm pedal feel. Ventilated 11.6-inch discs front and rear, twin-piston calipers in front and single-piston in back.

We liked the suspension, both the around-town ride and out there on the track. The ride is firm, and it hugs the bumps and feels tight. While it might be the perfect setup for the track and enthusiastic Sunday drives, it could be a bit too firm for some as a daily driver.

Summary

Subaru BRZ hits the mark with a capable powertrain, dynamic handling and affordable price.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
