Two weeks ago, an anonymous Subaru spokesperson for the British Autocar confirmed that we should not rely on a new BRZ on the European market, even though its predecessor was sold on the old continent. The views of keen drivers in Europe are therefore moving towards Toyota, which again participated in the development of the second generation, but as yet is not attracting the second generation and the Czech representation does not want to comment on the arrival of the news.
The second generation is built on the same platform as the first edition, so you’ll notice very similar shapes from the profile. In design terms, however, significant changes occurred at the arch and stile.
Subaru says the engineers have worked to strengthen the structure, increase the car’s torsional rigidity by 50 percent and also reduce the car’s center of gravity. Inside, the Japanese stick to an established recipe, for example, the steering stays the same. The infotainment is a novelty with an eight-inch screen or digital instrument panel.
Under the hood, a four-cylinder petrol engine with flat cylinder and atmospheric filler stays, but it’s a completely different unit, so the 2.4-liter engine replaces the two-liter.
It offers 168 kilowatts, 228 hp, and 249 Nm of torque. The predecessor had 147 kW, 200 to 205 Nm. A unit with six-speed manual transmission will be paired, but an automatic cabinet will also be available again. The rear-wheel drive is a matter of course.
The novelty will hit the American market next autumn.
