http://www.autobytel.com/subaru/brz/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Subaru BRZ, along with its twin brother, have been named to Autobytel's Car of the Year List. The BRZ is the first rear wheel drive sports car that Subaru has developed in over 50 years. The BRZ is all about balance and handling. The Boxer engine has a flat design and allows for the center of gravity to be lower in this car. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is a real driver's car and with a base price of $25,494 that is well within reach of most enthusiasts. Take a car that has RWD, a manual transmission, and the engine up front; add those things together and you have a recipe for an exciting sports car. Toyota and Subaru have joined forces to produce such a vehicle. We have already tested the Scion FR-S now let's take a look at what makes the 2013 Subaru BRZ such and amazing car. From afar the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ look almost identical. But up close you will notice the front end differs a bit between these 2 automobiles. The BRZ sports classic Subaru Blue Paint, along with the diamond cut grille inserts in the bumper. Under the hood the award winning FA20 engine is a horizontally opposed 2.0 liter flat-4 Boxer. This engine produces 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft. of torque. You can pick between a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Fuel economy is excellent at 25 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway. The 2013 Subaru BRZ differs most from the Scion FR-S when it comes to the interior. The BRZ has a standard navigation screen and leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The BRZ has a cool push button start and aviation style switches. The 2013 Subaru BRZ packs more standard features and options than the Scion FR-S. The Subaru BRZ is a pure driving car. It's a blast to take out on the road. The 6-speed manual is near perfect with its show throws. The pedals are perfectly placed for heel-tow downshifts. The brakes are responsive and the steering is direct. This car is all about having fun. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/?id=32972 Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel
