The 2022 Subaru BRZ has been launched and is now a completely new car inside out. It has been completely re-engineered and gets a new SUBARU BOXER engine to get you better acceleration, horsepower, and torque. Moreover, it preserves its great handling and a rear-wheel drivetrain, and imperatively so. The car is made for true revheads; it’s for those who want some thrill in their lives.



2022 Subaru BRZ

The 2022 Subaru BRZ is a true sports car, so to say and to keep the enthusiast happy Subaru has kept the pricing aggressive with the base MSRP being below $28,000. But do keep in mind the base prices are for the model with the stick shifter while those looking for the convenience of an automatic need to shell out more. That said, Subaru's EyeSight Driver-assist aid is exclusive to the automatic models.

The 2022 Subaru BRZ comes as a completely new car albeit with almost similar characteristics as the 2020 BRZ. Thus staying true to offering a fun-to-drive two-door sports coupe Subaru BRZ comes solely in RWD and with a stick shifter as standard. As for the changes, the 2022 BRZ along with the new powertrain, gets a lot of improvement done to its mechanicals. While the interiors are redesigned with lots of modern techs are brought in. The tech holds the practicality of the car while the interiors hold the luxury. While when it comes to rivalry, the car stands adept in the face of the Toyota GR86, the Mazda MX-5 Miata, and the Chevrolet Camaro. But will it be worth the dough?

2022 Subaru BRZ Engine and Performance

5.0/10

With a new generation to begin with the year 2022, the Subaru BRZ’s engine is bigger and better than any of its previous year's models. The 2022 BRZ features an all-new naturally aspirated 2.4-liter flat-four-cylinder, also known as SUBARU BOXER engine producing 228 hp of power and 184 lb-ft, which is 23 hp and 28 lb-ft more than the previous model. It’s the only engine that would come with the close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission along with the short-throw shifter. The shifter is, by the way, upgraded for the new model. Additionally, the 6-speed automatic transmission with downshift rev-matching and paddle shifters provide extra convenience. Coming to the drivetrain system, the Subaru keeps the sporty feel of its BRZ toned to the rear-wheel drivetrain.

With the gain in power and torque, Subaru has also done a few mechanical changes to the chassis, lowered the center of gravity, and stiffened the rear end to not only improve the handling but also keep the ride quality forgiving even while going over bad roads. Along with this, the BRZ now weighs slightly over 2,800 pounds, and the weight is, in fact, distributed equally at the front and the back. All this and the new powertrain setup on the 2022 BRZ has improved its acceleration timings and it now goes from 0-60 MPH in a shade above six seconds. While with the performance tires now being standard on the BRZ the braking performance has also improved and under panic braking it stopped from 60-0 MPH in just under 106 feet.

The BRZ’s new bigger engine might be impressive enough with its upgraded performance attributes but not big enough to beat the Chevy Camaro’s turbo-four engine. However, in terms of torque numbers, the 2022 BRZ surely showed some impressive hike beating the MX-5 Miata.

2022 Subaru BRZ Fuel Economy

9.0/10

As per the Subaru, the 2022 BRZ will return 20 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway when had with the 6-speed manual gearbox while the BRZ equipped with 6-speed automatic returns 21 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway. While the 13.2-gallon fuel tank capacity on the BRZ is sufficient to give you 350 miles plus of cruising range on the highway and close to 300 miles of range under mixed driving conditions.

In this comparison, the Mazda is the one leading with its highest combined mileage of 29 MPG. Nevertheless, even after being a poor performer with its MPG figures, the Camaro has been granted a generous fuel tank capacity that helps it to cruise for a combined range of 456 miles.

2022 Subaru BRZ Interior

5.0/10

The 2022 Subaru BRZ doesn’t have a much-changed interior layout. However, you get a lot of improvised and new hardware. The cabin gets heavily bolstered front seats with red stitching to give them a sporty look. The seats offer only manual adjustment although the level of comfort and support is good. The dashboard layout has been kept simple with the infotainment screen integrated into the dash to keep the dash height lower and improve the front visibility. Subaru also says that the roof pillars have been kept thin to further improve visibility and lower the blindspots. Coming to the ingress and egress, well both can be a bit of a hassle given the lower seat height and wide-opening doors.

As standard, the 2022 BRZ comes with fabric trimmed seats while the higher trims get simulated leather upholstery. When it comes to hardware, the 2022 Subaru BRZ comes with an all-new 7-inch driver’s display that showcases plenty of information. While another change on the 2022 BRZ is that it now gets an upgraded infotainment system that utilizes the 8-inch unit found in most of the modern Subarus. It also offers you great connectivity options; much thanks to the Subaru Starlink. As for the boot space and the rear seat space, both are in short supply. The rear seats are best used for luggage while the 6.3 cubic feet of trunk space is far from generous and hampers the overall practicality.

The Subaru BRZ and Toyota GR86 being almost the same car have similar interior dimensions. Both the coupe also offers exactly the cargo capacity of 6.3 cubic feet. On the other hand, the MX-5 Miata has a two-seater passenger capacity only, and with 4.6 cubic feet of trunk space is the least spacious and practical car here. While the Chevrolet Camaro is overall more spacious and practical amongst the competition.

Interior Features:

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control

  • Customizable 7-inch digital driver’s display
  • Keyless entry and push-button start

2022 Subaru BRZ Exterior

6.0/10

The exterior of the 2022 Subaru BRZ is completely overhauled. It has a very different wide-mouthed front fascia and a rather tucked or let’s say tightened rear end. The 2022 Subaru BRZ is an inch long and half-an-inch short that allows for a sleeker yet rakish appearance. The rear end of the car, the muscular one, comes with a slick ducktail spoiler curve or the dual-outlet exhaust on the rear decklid. Multi-spoke wheels complement the set of side rocker panels leading up to the scalloped side ducts.

2022 Subaru BRZ Coupe

The BRZ’s older platform has been refurbished into a new version with respect to the dimensions. The wheelbase has been elongated by 0.2 inches. Subaru Global Platform for the BRZ helped with the great chassis of the Subaru. It applies the structural improvements that enhance the front lateral bending rigidity rating by 60% as compared to the old version.

The 2022 BRZ’s new exterior design makes it slightly longer, half an inch lower, and comparatively lighter than its previous year models. The more functional aerodynamics design of the car gives it a better edge of styling than most of the mentioned rivals. Besides, Subaru has kept the BRZ’s iconic look closer to their vintage sports car model.

Exterior Features:

  • LED headlights
  • 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels
  • LED brake lights
  • Front fog lamps

2022 Subaru BRZ Safety

6.0/10

The 2022 Subaru BRZ is yet to be crash-tested by federal agencies like NHTSA and IIHS. The 2020 year model of the BRZ has also not been crash-tested by these organizations to date. So it isn't possible to even draw a conclusion based on past results here. However, Subaru has equipped the BRZ with an advanced and effective safety suite. It has provided the coupe with a long list of safety features along with noteworthy driving assistance features. Thus it is safe to assume that if and when the BRZ goes for the crash test it will get decent safety ratings.

Safety Features:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control 
  • Subaru STARLINK Safety and Security
  • Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology (Automatic variants only)

2022 Subaru BRZ Competition

7.0/10

2022 Subaru BRZ vs 2022 Toyota GR86

Both the 2022 Subaru BRZ and the 2022 Toyota GR86 are soul sisters. But the 2022 Subaru is clearly better in terms of driver engagement and overall dynamics of the car. Though both the cars are almost similar the Subaru BRZ is pricier than the GR86.

2022 Toyota 86

Except for these subtle differences both the cars are like the same wine in different bottles. So going for either of the two will solely depend upon your brand preference.

2022 Subaru BRZ vs 2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The 2022 Subaru BRZ has a better performance compared to the 2021 Mazda MX-5. The Mazda MX-5 Miata has better fuel economy compared to the BRZ. Though MX-5 Miata has a 2-seater passenger capacity only, it offers comparatively better seating space for its front-row passengers.

2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata

On the other hand, the Subaru BRZ offers a 4-seater passenger capacity with a better cargo volume. So from a practical point of view and also if you are someone with a large build, the Subaru BRZ is a better pick here.

2022 Subaru BRZ vs 2021 Chevrolet Camaro

The BRZ’s updated engine might be powerful but still not powerful enough to beat the heat of a Chevy Camaro. However, in terms of fuel economy, the Subaru BRZ is way ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro but Camaro’s bigger fuel tank capacity does provide it an advantage over BRZ in the form of a longer range.

2021 Chevrolet Camaro

Another thing to note is the here is the level of engine options and customizations available for the Camaro which is something the BRZ can never match. Thus between the two, we feel the Camaro is a more prudent pick.

2022 Subaru BRZ Final Verdict

The 2022 Subaru BRZ may look like a minor overhaul, but believe us it’s not. The car has its wings spread out in every direction. Subaru has been delivering, with its BRZ, everything that the consumers desire. The new model is way too sharp and better than its previous version. And for the places that didn’t need any revamps, Subaru did smart work and didn’t apply any of its minds over there. Embracing all, the Subaru BRZ is sure to become an instant hit among lightweight sports coupes in the US auto market.

Speed is not the only way to have fun

Pros - Sporty cockpit. Great deal. Absolute fun to drive.

Cons - Not really fast. Low on cabin space. Over steers.

Space constraints This could possibly be the best interpretation of the terms “Pocket-Rocket” as the BRZ is a fun and enjoyable tiny little beast that takes on corners like its born to do that. The car does over steer at times but I was able to get used to the whole character of this car very soon and for $30,440, this definitely is a sweet deal. This isn’t a car for your family in any way as the space it offers is very limited but if you need something to brighten up your day without breaking your bank account then the B...

My genuine ownership experience "My kind advice for the buyers: *The Subaru BRZ is a mild-powered coupe with a sporty exterior design and fun-filled steering response. *Never expect quick acceleration from its engine and the fuel economy is quite embittering on real-world. *This car will be a perfect option for amateurs and who rarely drive fast but they'll enjoy the driving experience. *The rear cabin can't accommodate adults for long hours since the legroom is minimal."

Pros - Classic body shape, comfortable and supportive front seats, balanced handling and fun to drive.

Cons - Cramped rear seat and significant highway noise along with a small storage space.

Sporty vehicle with excellent handling and reactivity I've always been drawn to unusual automobiles. From the moment I saw the blue colour and sat in the driver's seat, the BRZ had me hooked. And just after the test ride was completed I decided to purchase the beautiful coupe. Its engine and handling have an analogue feel, and it encourages drivers to focus in rather than blank out. Listening to the engine thrash and whine takes away a lot of the fun of cranking it up. The majority of the buttons are precisely located whe...
