2013 Subaru BRZ: Fine For Me On The Highway

September 6, 2012


Captain Obvious here, but if you're looking to buying a BRZ, long-distance comfort shouldn't be high on your priority list. Like James wrote last month, the BRZ is kind of noisy, has the frustrating audio interface, lacks a proper center arm rest and is kind of stingy on interior storage. But having driven our BRZ for a couple four-hour highway drives, I'll say it's still perfectly adequate for trips of this duration. The seat and ride quality are still comfortable enough, and it's not that noisy (I think our old Nissan 370Z was worse). The fuel range isn't all that great either, but you can still easily get more than 300 highway miles out of a tank.

If I owned a BRZ, I'd have no problem doing 300-mile drives. Say, to a race track for a track day, for instance.
