KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz - Updated Date: 6/20/2014


The 2015 Subaru BRZ is the only Subaru you can buy that isn't all-wheel drive. This rear-drive sports car is for purists who want something they can drive every day, but also take to their favorite mountain roads, or even to a weekend race event, without changing a thing. The BRZ delivers in a way few cars in this price range can. The precision steering, excellent chassis and suspension, and sheer playfulness remind drivers of early Mazda RX-7s or Datsun 280Zs, but with all the modern safety, technology, and traction-control enhancements you can find on a 21st-century car. While not the most powerful car out there, what it lacks in punch, it makes up for with poise.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want quick, agile, affordable fun, there's little out there that can match the 2015 Subaru BRZ, save its twin, the Scion FR-S. The styling is spot on, it has serviceable rear seats, and it even gets good fuel economy, making it a livable daily driver.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you need raw power and torque, and the ability to win every stoplight drag race you get into, then the BRZ isn't the sports car for you. Seek out a domestic musclecar, with a V6 or, preferably, a V8 engine.

What's New for 2015

The 2015 Subaru BRZ gets new shock absorbers this year to help smooth the ride, but without hurting handling. A limited special edition called "Series.Blue" is also available, featuring aerodynamic enhancements and unique paint colors.

Driving It Driving Impressions

If the Ford Mustang is Arnold Schwarzenegger, then the 2015 Subaru BRZ is Bruce Lee. Rather than use sheer muscle from a powerful engine, the lean and mean Subaru BRZ uses a beautifully balanced suspension and chassis, a limited-slip differential, razor-sharp steering and quick reflexes to turn any twist in the road into a driver's playground. But there's more. The braking is also excellent, and the acceleration is brisk if not exactly breathtaking, and the manual transmission is excellent. The 2.0-liter engine isn't a power dynamo, but the car's lightweight body allows the engine's 200 horsepower to do their job without disappointment. Best of all, the BRZ is remarkably fuel efficient, its around-town ride won't beat you up, and it's nicely equipped, making it a very livable sports car for every day.

Favorite Features

VOICE-ACTIVATED GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM
The Scion FR-S and the Mazda MX-5 Miata both are available with a voice-activated navigation system. However, only the BRZ comes with one as standard equipment.

IMPRESSIVE FUEL ECONOMY
Usually, sports cars sacrifice fuel economy for performance. However, despite the BRZ's excellent driving dynamics, it still gets very good fuel economy – up to 34 mpg highway with an automatic transmission.
