The 2022 Subaru BRZ features a new 2.4-litre, four-cylinder boxer engine but retains a six-speed manual transmission, along with low weight and great handling.

The all new, rear-wheel drive 2022 Subaru BRZ sports car has made its global debut at the Thermal Club Raceway in Thermal, California.

Subaru developed the all new BRZ with the same fundamentals of sports car design that it used to create the original - low vehicle weight, an ultra-low center of gravity with precision steering and handling in an affordable 2+2 package. For the 2022 model year, the BRZ features more power, better handling, improved styling, a 50% increase in torsional stiffness and a modern interior.

Despite it sporty nature, the BRZ does not sacrifice practicality, with rear seats that can fold down and decently sized boot
Utilising aluminium for the roof, front fenders and hood, the 2022 Subaru BRZ has an estimated curb weight of just under 1,315kg.

Designed to deliver an unmatched driving experience, the new BRZ features a new and more powerful 2.4-litre boxer engine, producing 225bhp and 249Nm of torque. It can be fitted with a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission

Despite its sporting intentions, the 2022 Subaru BRZ does not sacrifice everyday comfort and practicality. The 2+2 seating and folding rear seats create a useful cargo area.

The BRZ's new styling is familiar yet different, being an evolution of the previous design. The overall impression is modern and powerful, with focused and functional aerodynamic details. It is just 25mm longer and almost 12mm lower than before, resulting in a low and wide frontal area set off by large functional air intakes.

The front fenders feature large side vents, and these functional side vents help to reduces drag by ducting air from under the bonnets and fenders. 

At the rear of the car, the large rear fenders and wider track flow into dual exhausts for a low and wide stance. This visual heft is lightened by a narrower greenhouse and rear hatch which flow into a dramatic upturned 'ducktail' rear spoiler.

The new BRZ features a new interior with every detail focused on the driver. A new customisable 7.0-inch digital dashboard is the focal point with the tachometer front and center featuring an integrated digital speedometer readout.

The cabin has been refreshed to make it more driver focused, with a new 7.0-inch digital gauge cluster that can be customised to suit the driver
The overall cabin design is contemporary and modular with improved driver amenities. The 8.0-inch infotainment touch screen comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, rear vision camera and SiriusXM services. 

In keeping with its sports car dynamics, the BRZ seating position is low. Deeply contoured bucket seats provide support and are enhanced with red detail stitching.

Featuring a bespoke chassis, the BRZ takes full advantage of its ultra-low center of gravity and high-strength body structure. With a 2,580mm wheelbase and near perfect weight distribution, the 2022 Subaru BRZ is nimble and easy to control.

Using design elements from the Subaru Global Platform, the chassis has gained rigidity through a reinforced chassis mounting system, sub-frame architecture and other connection points.

Front lateral bending rigidity has been increased by 60% for improved turn-in and response. The front suspension features custom-designed MacPherson-type struts to optimise the low bonnet line while retaining a long stroke for ideal handling and ride quality.

The standard Vehicle Stability Control traction and stability system offers the driver five different settings. The system has been redesigned to allow more input from the driver before it activates the traction system. The system can be turned completely off to put the driver in full control.

Production of the Subaru BRZ will be at Subaru's Gunma, Japan assembly plant, with the new BRZ going on sale in the second half of 2021.
