What’s BRZ really like? How does it drive? Get the inside story from owners and motoring press experts
Well pleased. Just what I expected
This is my second back to back Subaru bought from Perkins Subaru going from the BRZ to the WRX STI . Both these cars are so much fun to drive . I am now a fan for life of the way they drive the reliability and the service I have received from the dealership . Can't imagine changing to another marque now and look forward to seeing there future technologies for the upcoming models.
What a fantastic little car, the BRZ does exactly what you expect it holds the road and performs well. Very impressed with Subaru, Happy Dayz.
I've had my BRZ from new four 4 years now and it still puts a big smile on my face when I drive it energetically. The BRZ is not about winning the traffic light drag race. It's quick enough but the real pleasure is the handling and pure driver involvement. Across country, there is not another car I would rather be in and I can say that based upon cars I have owned in the past which include a couple of Lotus', three M5's , an 8 series and an M6. All great cars in their own way but not as much fun as the BRZ. To really appreciate how good a BRZ is, find a dealership close to some decent B roads. You won't be disappointed !
I recently purchased a subaru BRZ at my local dealership Dales Subaru. The service i received there from the whole team was simply outstanding so much so we bought a second car the same week , It didn't end there though the aftersales service was equally outstanding i have owned over 30 cars luckily 6 of these have been subarus as they are by far the best driving experience on todays market ,Well done Subaru and especially Ross at Dales Subaru enjoyed the friendly expert advice from the outset and the whole buying experience thank you
I have owned two WRX, a Legacy Spec B, and now a BRZ. All my Subaru's whether purchased new or used have been reliable and very strong. I push cars hard and other makes tend to fail, Subaru's do not. The BRZ gets better as the miles increase and perhaps as I learn to push harder and hold gears longer. I love the rear drive handling which makes every trip to work that bit more exciting due to some wide roundabouts on route. Yes, I'll keep buying Subaru.
“With 200bhp driving those not overly-fat rear wheels, it strikes a really welcome power-to-weight-to-grip balance that doesn't come along very often. And when it does we should all be happy.”
“The BRZ is a supremely competent machine, even in greasy conditions, where its quick steering and alert chassis fill you with faith that the car will respond to your every command.”
“The BRZ is extremely agile and corners as if it was on rails, while the new dampers help it to deal with difficult road surfaces. The steering is sharp and accurate, while the gearchange has a lovely action that makes you want to use it even more than you need to.”
“Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the drive is how composed it is. The steering is totally responsive without being twitchy and the ventilated disc brakes are effective and work without drama.”
“Handling is a big part of what the BRZ is about. The rear-wheel drive configuration is music to driving purists’ ears, while the low centre of gravity means this is a car that simply loves corners.”
“For purity and driver entertainment, the BRZ is the best in class.”
