2013 Subaru BRZ Limited 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Great little sports car. Has great handling and good looks. manual shifter is direct and precise. good visibabilty. bought this because I live in Chicago and drive 6 miles a day in traffic. Don't need a big v8 motor, as much as I want one. Good on gas, 35mpg highway, or about 18 avg combined driving. brisk acceleration( it's ok, it's a little 2.0L 4cyl.) back seat is torture for anyone, has decent trunk space. radio is kinda shitty. tiny buttons and poor sound out of crap stock speakers even with the top of line limited model. Had for 2 years and like my car but now ready for another 2 door with more power, like a camaro v8 or bmw M235i. Wish the brz had like 300 hp, not just the 200 it has.

2013 Subaru BRZ Limited 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

As mentioned by others a lot has been written about this car and most of it is true. The car is very well balanced and is great on the backroads. Power is adequate given the weight of the car too much more and it would affect the driving dynamics of the vehicle. Shifting is very precise and short just the way you want it but in the cold weather until the car warms up shifts from 1st to 2nd can be a bit clunky. layout of interior is fantastic seats are supportive but being sport seats can be a little snug for larger people. Back seat to me are just there to save insurance costs not very practical at all. Very well appointed for the money, stock tires are way too brutal over road transitions.


Best Features

Appearance of car inside and out very well done. Drop down rear seats for extra storage, crisp shifting manual transmission. Very good visibility, excellent heating and cooling control. Many features included in base price, great value. Great balance, tight steering - very precise. Good sounding stereo.


Worst Features

Put Ultra High Performance All season Radials on car vs. Grand Touring tires. Tires are too hard you feel every pebble you drive over, I am changing tires after 1 week of ownership. Buttons to change radio stations a bit small hard to change stations. Don't include NAV in the car, I would rather save 1K and attach a 120.00 Garmin to the windshield when I need it. Offer streamlined splash guards, I have some on my C6 corvette that look great. Audio/Phone buttons on Steering wheel would be nice. Homelink rear view mirror Std would be nice, everyone likes to control their garage door opener at least from the car.

2013 Subaru BRZ Premium 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Review

This is my first Subaru. Coming from a celica, and with this car being made jointly by Toyota and Subaru, I felt close to home. The engineers nailed it on this one - the 200hp to weight ratio is perfect and the handling is great. I had a problem with the nav system twice and had to take it to the dealer and have it replaced, but other then that it is a great car to drive and a car that a car enthusiast should not pass up.


Best Features

The handling, and light weight design.


Worst Features

More mid range torqe, sometimes you do find yourself falling behind.

Review

Others both professional and amateur have reviewed this car all over the internet.
Let me confirm that the positive hyperbole is actually warranted.
Incredible sports car for the money.
If you are a car enthusiast, you must drive this car.
Steering is quick and nimble, suspension is firm and confident, acceleration could be better, but who cares when you are giggling and grinning as you carve up any curve with confidence.
The boxer rumble is nice, I wouldn't mind some more noise from the stock exhaust.
Weak points are what you would expect: small trunk, small backseat, low entry into car tough for taller folks (I'm 6'2" and can get in okay).


Best Features

1. Driving experience; this car means business, and when you sit in the driver's seat you can tell that. Great seat position with wheel and shifter; gauge cluster is no nonsense with large tach and digital speedo. Car feels like a natural extension of the driver while driving. 2. Exterior styling; this car looks fantastic on the road and it literally turns heads. Random people look, stare, wave, take photos and ask me what kind of car is that?! 3. I look forward to driving this car everyday.


Worst Features

Almost every reviewer decries: more power! So I'll jump on the bandwagon to. Would have preferred closer to 250 horsepower and 200 lb/ft torque.
