The BRZ has been an instant hit for Subaru. After its introduction last year it remains mostly unchanged for 2014. Minor improvements to the entertainment system make smartphone integration easier than last year.
Superb, balanced handling; quick, responsive steering; rev-happy engine; classic sports-car look and feel; strong feature set; standard navigation system
The BRZ was designed and engineered for performance, and it's neither a chopped version of a sedan nor a performance version of more basic coupe; so it's impressive that the BRZ is priced so affordably. With pricing that starts at $26,390 and less than $30,000 in top-of-the-line Limited form, the BRZ is one of the best performance deals for weekend racers, or anyone who judges performance cars by how well they tackle the corners. In this way, the BRZ delivers the kind of performance bargain enthusiasts crave. It also makes enough sense for daily driving, with enough features to make commuters happy plus EPA highway estimates of up to 34 mpg.
