Subaru has come up with its lightest and easy to handle sports car yet- the new 2022 Subaru BRZ. Carrying on the design principles of its original model, the company has also made several new adjustments to further bolster its strength and driving experience. The new launch opens positive prospects for the company and the sale of this latest model.
Subaru’s hallmark design language for sports cars– a lightweight vehicle with a low centre of gravity and smooth manoeuvring has made an appearance in the all-new 2022 Subaru BRZ. Not only this, it has also been transformed into a much more advanced model than its former counterparts. Now it is not only light and easy to handle, it also looks more dynamic on the outside and is much suited to cater to modern needs on the inside. Let’s see if this new Subaru is the car you’ve been looking for and what exactly is it that makes it special, as we dive into the technicalities of this vehicle.
The 2022 Subaru BRZ is the lightest model in its range of rear-wheel drive 2+2 production sports cars in the entire United States automobile market. This already sets it apart from rest of the cars in its competition. Being such a light sports car and able to be precisely steered, it also has an equally powerful 2.4 litre ‘BOXER’ engine that delivers a max output of 228 horsepower. The engine’s power output runs parallel to its body weight and dynamics, which means that at the same power level of any sports car, it offers a much more defined steering experience.
It also offers two different trims in Limited and Premium types and further allows two choice of transmission customization of six-speed manual and automatic. The latter transmission option comes with a Sport mode which allows a more powerful and adrenaline-rich driving experience, an optimal fit for those who enjoy a little rush every once in a while. Even though the 2022 Subaru BRZ is a sports car in every aspect of its performance, the car maker did not compromise in any form on its usability for everyday life. Its 2+2 seating package and foldable rear seats make more room for luggage that takes up more space- be it sports equipment or even vehicle tools.
Use of lightweight materials and an exterior styling that assists its aerodynamic ability have been added to deliver the maximum level of performance possible. A culmination of various aspects added to a single design, the model is not only inspired from its predecessor, it also has a modern coupe styling with a roofline that is reminiscent of vintage racing cars and their unique ‘double bubble’ appearance. The exterior is not just beautiful to look at; it is also just as functional.
An interior designed specifically centring on the driver, it houses a slew of assistive features meant to keep one entertained while also allowing them to easily drive the car- be it a 7 inch digital dashboard or the brand’s newest SUBARU STARLINK multimedia system. The chassis is just as impressive as rest of the car with a newer firmer frame. Customers buying their own 2022 Subaru BRZ can expect a sports car performance packed into an ultramodern body that is just as suited to everyday travel as it is to the tracks.
