The 2022 Subaru BRZ is here in the best thing about it is that what has changed, its what hasn't the new BRZ is the same lightweight sports coupe we know and love but it's got a little more style, a little more tech and even a little more power under the hood.
The new BRZ has a 24.
liter boxer for engine making 228 horsepower and 184 pound feet of torque which are increases of 23 horsepower and 28 pound feet.
Over the old car is 2 liter engine and a 6 speed manual transmission with a short throw shifter is standard, but you can also opt for a 6 speed automatic with a sport mode that will automatically Rev match on down shifts.
Just like before the BRZ uses rear wheel drive and things to stiffer chassis components in five different traction control settings.
This little Coop should not only be more agile but you should definitely be able to drift it.
The updated styling is really no better or worse than the old BRZ but we like the smooth surface thing and the compact we're in.
The base Beer Z Premium will roll on 17 inch wheels, while the limited will have eight teams, both of which will come wrapped in 215 section tires.
All told, the BRZ is only ever so slightly heavier than its predecessor with the base car tipping the scales at just 2815 pounds.
Step inside and you'll see new front chairs as well as two small seats in the back that are probably better used for carrying backpacks than actual humans.
Thankfully those rear seats fold down, allowing longer items to pass through from the trunk.
The big news in side is the 7 inch reconfigurable gauge cluster with a large tachometer in the middle an all sorts of driving data on either side move over to the dashboard and you'll find an 8 inch touchscreen running Subaru, Starlink infotainment system.
And if that's not your jam, both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Our standard official pricing and fuel economy data are still TBD right now, but expect the 2022 BRZ to start in the mid 25000$, range and Crest 30 grand all loaded up production starts in Japan next year to the first cars hitting US dealers in the fall.
