2013 Subaru BRZ: At Home Above the Fray

February 27, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

Taking the Subaru BRZ home on crowded streets, sitting in L.A. traffic and waiting for the lights to change is not my idea of fun. So instead, I decided to take a romp in our local back roads after work and see what the BRZ was like in the mountains.

And yes, it's just like everybody's been saying since we've had the car. I didn't have to be drifting or reaching the car's limits of grip to enjoy the simplicity of it all. Even though I left the stability control on and spent a vast majority of my time in third gear (and well below the speed limit) it was still a great time.

I'm not 100-percent sure I'd want this car as a daily driver but on the weekends, I'm sold.

    Were there situations in the mountains where you felt the BRZ was woefully underpowered?
