2016 Subaru BRZ Buyer's Guide
The Subaru BRZ is a small 2-door 4-seat sports car, and currently Subaru’s only two-wheel drive vehicle. The BRZ was first introduced in 2012 alongside its cousin, the Scion FR-S, and since then both have been acclaimed for their handling. While the BRZ might initially seem a bit underpowered, its light curb weight of around 2,800 lbs and relatively skinny tires make it a great car for enthusiasts, and a great entry point for beginners. That said, more power would probably make the BRZ even more fun. The interior is pleasant for the front occupants, but the back seats are too small to be useful, with no legroom. The rumours are that 2017 will bring a refresh for the pair, which may include a slight power bump and perhaps even a convertible model.
