2013 Subaru BRZ

What’s interesting about the new 2013 Subaru BRZ is that it tried to do something differently and distance itself from previous Subaru models. Whereas other 2013 cars rode on waves from previous years and continued with the same features that had made them favorites, Subaru had the guts to try something new and surprise its fans. The main difference is the renunciation of the all-wheel drive that Subaru costumers had become accustomed to. Another feature was the Boxer engine which offered so many thrills to speed racing drivers thanks to its addition of the turbocharger. The Subaru BRZ has given up on the turbocharger while it managed to maintain the same driving quality and pleasure.

The way to understand what the new 2013 Subaru BRZ is all about is by finding out what the initials stand for: the B stands for Boxer engine, the R for rear-wheel drive and the Z for Zenith. The Zenith part of the name doesn’t actually have any correlation with some special feature, but it is probably used as an adjective to describe where the car wants to be placed. Some of the more important specifications that you may want to know are about its 2.0-liter direct-injection, four-cylinder Boxer engine with 200 horsepower at 7000 rpm. Weighing a mere 2,762 pounds, the 2013 Subaru BRZ is among the lightest cars in its category. This sporty car is fitted with keyless entry and start plus fog lights, which, among other specs, probably account for its price, which is somewhere around the sum of 25, 495 USD.

This two-door car offers amazing driving experience for those thrilled with speed, fast controls and response, but it is also quite satisfactory visually. The secret of this cute coupe is that it has one of the lowest centers of gravity, putting cars like Ferrari to shame; those interested in purchasing the 2013 Subaru BRZ will also be interested to know that the engineers really struggled to balance the weight distribution, bringing it to a 53/47 front/rear weight distribution, which is a great achievement. In fact, many other 2013 cars have attempted to achieve something similar to this, but only Subaru’s results were as impressive, truly making it comparable with professional racing cars.

One must remember that this is not a family-oriented car, it is a two-seater meant for fast driving and fast times. Also, in order to reduce its weight as much as possible, its engineers and designers tried to give up on any unnecessary details, so the interior is quite simple and utilitarian. This car is focused on satisfying the driver, so the front seats have plenty of leg room and they are supportive. The rear part is less cared for, so if a third or fourth passengers are added, the space might seem a bit cramped. However, even though this car may scream reckless behavior, it actually behaves very well under the most extreme pressure and even if you push its limits it will impress you with its stability and balance.
