Whether you’re in the market for a sporty, comfortable, or reliable vehicle, the Subaru BRS will meet your needs. It’s built to offer a comfortable ride for up to four passengers, excellent handling, and a powerful engine. Petition, it includes features like a rear-wheel drive system, torque-sensing limited-slip differential, and Starlink-connected services.
2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine
Compared to the 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder Subaru brz engine, the new engine is a half-liter bigger and produces an additional 37Nm of torque. The engine produces 228 horsepower at 7,000 pm and 184 pound-feet of torque at 3,700 rpm.
The new engine is designed to produce a smoother performance at any speed, and the more compact combustion chamber improves fuel efficiency. Other features include a closed Diesel Particulate Filter and a higher-pressure joint rail fuel injection.
The engine produces a better power-to-weight ratio, and the BRZ has better gear ratios. It also has an ultra-low Center of Gravity, which is essential for unrivaled handling.
The Subaru BRZ is available in two trim levels. The BRZ Limited features heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an Ultrasuede/leather-trimmed upholstery.
Conceived initially as a rear-wheel drive sports car, the Subaru BRZ has taken some time to develop. Designed as a second car for Subaru, the BRZ shares many parts with the Toyota FT-86, including a rear-wheel drive chassis, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, a 2+2 seating layout, and a low dashboard.
The BRZ is an affordable sports car that’s surprisingly fun to drive. It’s EPA-rated at 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The interior features a redesigned driver-centric cockpit and a 7.0-inch digital gauge cluster. It also includes a center-mounted 8.0-inch touchscreen that acts as the hub for the infotainment system. It also has physical knobs for volume, tuning functions, and a SiriusXM satellite radio.
The BRZ will also be available in a Limited model, which includes features such as heated front seats, a power steering wheel, and an on/off traction control system. It also has a track mode and an integrated track stopwatch in the instrument cluster.
Torque-sensing limited-slip differential
A Torque-sensing limited-slip differential is excellent for those driving a rear-wheel drive sports car. Torque-sensing differentials can transfer up to four times more power to the appropriate wheel, which improves grip and handling.
Torque-sensing differentials are not ideal for drag racing, but they are practical in road racing. In addition, they complement a well-balanced suspension package.
Torque-sensing limited-slip diffs are typically found on high-performance cars but can also be used on other cars. Depending on the type of vehicle, a Torque-sensing differential can be either mechanical or electronic. Mechanical LSDs involve an automatic clutch surrounding the open differential core gearing. The grip can either be fully locked up or unlocked and transfer all the torque to another wheel.
SUBARU STARLINK Connected Services (r) is a system of in-vehicle technology that provides a wide range of safety and convenience features. The system integrates navigation and touchscreen audio systems to provide drivers with a seamless driving experience. It also works with law enforcement to locate stolen vehicles. This enables quick recovery of the car. Using the onboard wireless network, STARLINK relays vehicle locations to service providers.
The STARLINK Concierge provides a personal assistant with on-demand, real-time assistance with booking appointments, ticket purchases, restaurant reservations, and other individual tasks. This service can be accessed from the MySubaru mobile app or a desktop computer.
The STARLINK Safety and Security package provides peace of mind by enabling the driver to control safety features and receive automatic collision notifications. The system also provides enhanced roadside assistance.
Stability and traction systems
During the development of the new Subaru BRZ, a lot of effort was put into the stability and traction systems. These systems are designed to keep the vehicle moving in all conditions. The plans are based on a symmetrical AWD system, which distributes power to the wheel with the most traction. They are also linked to the ABS.
The new BRZ comes with an all-new chassis that improves handling. It has a wider wheelbase and a lower center of gravity. It also comes with a more responsive steering system. The new chassis also has a higher torsional stiffness.
The new BRZ features an electronic traction and stability control system. The system offers five different settings. It also includes a Track Mode, which dials back the system to allow more sliding.
