    2019 Subaru BRZ OVERVIEW

    There's an abundance of small, usable sports cars on the market at the moment, and the 2019 Subaru BRZ is one of the better ones. The BRZ takes an old-school approach to fun with a lightweight body, rear-wheel-drive layout, peppy engine, and small overall design. Luckily for enthusiasts on a budget, the BRZ won't break the bank with its affordable price tag. Also lucky for enthusiasts is the fact that the BRZ puts driving pleasure above all else.

    What's New for 2019

    The 2019 model year sees the introduction of a new limited-edition BRZ Series Gray model. As its name implies, the special-edition sports car comes with a bespoke gray paint scheme, black 17-inch wheels, black badges, and black exterior mirrors. Subaru has also updated the seven-inch infotainment system in the Limited trim, adding the ability to make over-the-air updates through wi-fi. The system now comes with “Tune Mix” and “Sports Flash.” The former mixes music from preset channels, while the latter provides owners with updates on specific sports teams of their choosing.

    Choosing Your Subaru BRZ

    Since it first came out in 2013, the BRZ has had to make do with a 2.0-liter flat four-cylinder engine. It's rated to make 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque with the six-speed manual transmission. Opting for the available six-speed automatic gearbox brings power down by five hp and lb-ft of torque.

    Compared to other sports cars on the road, the BRZ may sound underpowered, but it weighs just 2,800 pounds. That means the two-door coupe can get to 60 mph in roughly 6.2 seconds. While not exactly quick by today's standards, that's still respectable and more than enough to have a good time every day. The BRZ's scant weight also gives the sports car excellent handling characteristics that few can match.

    The other great thing about the lightweight design and small engine is fuel efficiency. Fuel economy for the BRZ is rated at an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 27 combined with the automatic transmission.

    There are two available trims:


    Pricing for the Premium trim starts at $26,860 (all prices include the $885 destination charge). Standard exterior features include 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, a rear spoiler, and body-color and heated side mirrors. On the inside, the trim comes with a six-way manually adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth upholstery, power windows, a manually adjustable tilt-and-telescopic column, manual air conditioning, a 6.2-inch touchscreen, an eight-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, and an auxiliary jack. Subaru doesn't offer any optional packages on the Premium, but it does allow drivers to choose from various dealer-installed features.


    The Limited trim costs $29,530. It adds LED fog lights, heated front seats, leather-trimmed upholstery, a 4.2-inch multi-function display, dual-zone automatic climate control, a seven-inch touchscreen, and two USB ports. Adding the automatic transmission costs $1,100, while the Performance Package ($1,195) brings upgraded Brembo brakes, 17-inch wheels, and high performance dampers.

    CarsDirect Tip

    If the Subaru badge bothers you, or you manage to find a better deal at a Toyota dealership, the latter sells an identical model to the BRZ, which is called the 86. While we usually tend to lean toward the cheapest trim available when it comes to sports cars, the ability to get some creature comforts and even more performance draws us to the 2019 Subaru BRZ Limited. We'd tick the box for the available Performance Package and be content with one of the more enjoyable sports cars on the road.
