The #SubaruBRZ was always an outlier in the #Subaru lineup. As the company's only RWD car, its bespoke chassis, high-revving engine, and near perfect 50/50 weight distribution made it a huge hit for enthusiasts looking for an entry-level sports car with a big tuning potential. For 2022, the long-awaited second generation #BRZ is here, it gets a new 2.4L NA F-4 with up to 228 HP and 184 lb-ft of torque. Subaru has also given the BRZ a new design inside and out and when it goes on sale next Fall, pricing shouldn't stray too far from the current models under $30k base price.

  • A brand new sports car doesn’t come around very often. Especially an affordable one like the BRZ, expect to see Toyota unveil the new 86 very soon. We’re looking forward to seeing how that new 2.4L feels, do you believe Subaru should have gone the turbo route with a higher price tag? Or are you happy they elected to leave it naturally aspirated?

    • Patthon Sirilim Actually I'm more of a big fan of n/a. Problem with this car is that it's very expensive for $30,000 without a turbo or additional 2 cylinders (3.0 flat six would've been perfect).

    • @Patthon Sirilim don't get me wrong, I'm glad they've made the 2nd gen, and I think they've stayed relatively true to the ethos of the car whilst also attending to the demands of Joe public (more power+ torque dip removal/nicer interior). I'm just saying that I personally would have preferred them to have focussed more on weight reduction as this would have benefited performance, handling and economy and would have been truer to the ethos of a modern day 86. I was never that bothered about torque dip because when I want speed I just thrash the engine and keep it over 5000rpm, the way it's designed to be driven.

    • @jpogi gtxcr1 i disagree thou i like turbo cars almost every single affordable enthusiast car except for the mx5 out here is turbo all the hot hatch are turbocharged we need some diversity we need some high reving na car on the market this car was never meant to be a fast car it was meant to be a fun car if there really wanted to make it fast for the class they should have gotten a turbo 4 banger with an automatic tranny but everyone else is doing that exact same thing.

    • @Prateek Kumar i say Subaru hit out the park with this one got rid of the toruqe curve better interior better grip handling and increase power and torque throughout the powerband without sacrificing what made the original brz so great there barley enough weight gain im just glad it didn't go the turbo route massive power and massive weight.

    • @De ViceCrimsin no turbo bro keep the brz/86 a unique driving experience there so many turbo 4 banger out there high revving naturally aspirated engine are a dying breed and those engine give this type of car character.

  • 30+k for new BRZ OR 15k for previous model + turbo kit, wheels/tires, big brakes, and an exhaust

  • Horrible exterior design! The BRZ/FRS had a unique design, now it has a mainstream look. Just like multiple previous commentators mentioned, it looks like a mash-up of multiple car designs already out.

  • 7:33 That's a beautiful torque curve. Peak torque hits early and it mostly stays nice and flat towards redline. This should make the car an absolute blast to drive while also making it fun to rev out.

  • It's good I like it and want one, but now with all that depreciation, the old gen is almost perfect bang to buck ratio vehicle so definitely gonna buy gt 86 after this one starts rolling out. These type of light sports cars have one of the best driving feel and confidence which sometimes you can't even achieve in 100k+ vehicles.

  • I have a 2016 FRS and if they don't have the drop in the powerband @4000 rpm - that will be a huge improvement. That being said If they decided to add a turbo and increased to 250-275hp I would be over the moon!

  • Cant say I like the new design and it doesn't even have as much power as my 05 forester xt turbo. Honestly wish Subaru would bring back the 22b and brat with a low range transmission to compete in the off road market and provide a new transmission for us lifted subaru owners who are currently swapping in 30 year old transmission to get low range gearing.

  • I have found and saved the rarest Mazda FC RX7 ever made! Now this car is rare. Really rare! Let me break this down really quick... Ever heard of the rare 100 GTUs rx7s? Only 40 have ever been claimed and only 11 are confirmed at the time of this posting! Here are the rarest rx7 FC3S models: 1500 10AE Turbo models 1400 infini 1000 winning limited 150 final edition convertible 100 GTUs... out of that 100: 83 red on black 10 black on black 7 white on blue There was only 100 GTUs models created between 1989 and 1991. If you own one of these rare models sign your car up to the registry list here on any of the rotary forums! There are rumors about a restamped GTUs model... The entire origins GTUs owners thread on the rx7club was modified, icemarks claims deleted, registry list changed to have a confirmed section and the mods agree there are not enough GTUs models to have the restamped. If you want the full story behind the restamped models: If you have a real GTUs you can register it here:

  • What a world we live in. Civics get turbos and sports cars get detuned crossover engines. To be fair this thing looks a lot faster than the previous model. That midrange torque is substantially more than the 2.0
