2013 subaru brz at 2012 canadian auto show

Checking out the Subaru BRZ

This year, the Canadian International Auto Show played host to the all new Subaru BRZ sports coupe. The 2012 Subaru BRZ is a result of the collaboration between Subaru and Toyota of Japan. Even though the car has been developed jointly, the BRZ features a completely different suspension setup compared to its Toyota/Scion sibling. Thanks to our friends at Damon Choy Productions, we bring you this high-definition preview clip of the new 2013 Subaru BRZ.

The Subaru BRZ is a new brand known for its sports saloons. Its design is more Subaru than Toyota. It is available in the UK as a Toyota GT 86 and in the US as a Scion. Its flat-four engine churns out 200 bhp and 151 lb-ft of torque. The car has a double wishbone suspension at the rear and a limited-slip differential. It understeers at the limit, but with quick steering input and a dab of throttle, the BRZ goes in.

BRZ Features

The new car has a flat-four engine at its core, a trademark Subaru feature. The 2.0 litre boxer engine produces 200 bhp and 151 lb-ft of torque, allowing the rear-wheel drive sports car to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 6 sec. The car has a double wishbone sorts suspension at the rear along with a limited-slip differential, meaning lots of controlled tail-slides and tyre smoke.

BRZ cost

The Subaru BRZ has been reported to understeer at its limits; however, with some quick steering input and a dab of throttle, the BRZ can be brought into a slide. Additionally, the limited-slip differential helps keep the sports coupe on the road. The Subaru BRZ is slated for a spring-2012 debut and could be priced at around $25,000 for the base model.
