2013 Subaru BRZ: Controls Are In Close Proximity

April 30, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

The 2013 Subaru BRZ is meant to be an elemental sport coupe, one that goes back to the basics of driving. Much of that comes from the way the car steers and handles, but the interior design contributes as well.

I like how the controls are all within easy reach. You don't have to stretch out to adjust the audio volume, cruise control or climate temperature. Just move your arm a bit and everything is right there.

    I like cars like that, too. However, I guarantee you 30% of the population would complain that they feel closed in.

    Just an observation, the Toyabaru twins are very small cars. I'm just going to go out on a limb and guess that their lack of size contributes to the controls being within reach. Like I said, just a guess. ;-)
