2020 Subaru BRZ

2020 BRZ Photos
The 2020 Subaru BRZ, like its near-twin the Toyota 86, is a sports car that was designed to bring back the simplicity of sports-car driving. It hits its mark with nimble and precise (but decidedly loose) handling thanks to light weight and superb balance, and not too much power.

For 2020 Subaru brings back the track-day-prepped tS model, with just 300 versions to be sold in the U.S., all of them white with bronze wheels. Otherwise there is only one model, the Limited, which for 2020 gains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with other desirable features.

The styling of the BRZ is as sharp as ever. Technically it seats four people, but the two people behind the bucket seats will have to be very small. However with the back seats dropped, the trunk can hold four tires. If you don't do track days, that's a lot of room for road trips.

The engine is a Subaru 2.0-liter flat-4, with horizontally opposed cylinders, which enable better balance and a lower center of gravity in any car, but in a sports car it's especially effective. It makes 205 horsepower (200 with the automatic). Modest, controllable horsepower is what Subaru intended for the car.

The transmission is a 6-speed manual, as it should be, or a 6-speed automatic, to appeal to more people. Gas mileage with the 6-speed is 21 mpg city, 29 highway, 24 combined, and 24/33/27 mpg with the automatic. The tS gets a bit less, 20/27/23 mpg.

The BRZ gets four stars for frontal crash tests and five stars for rollover safety from the NHTSA, and the independent IIHS has given it a 'Good'? rating in every crash test except the small front overlap test on the driver's side, where it scored 'Acceptable.'?

No active safety equipment such as automatic emergency braking is available.
