What's on this page

Subaru BRZ

The Subaru BRZ is the (nearly) identical twin to the Toyota 86; it's even built on the same production line.

The deal to build the 2+2 two-door sports car sees Subaru supply the chassis and base 2.0-litre flat-four engine infrastructure, while Toyota supplies its fuel injection system and design. The rear-wheel drive coupe is designed to be affordable and entertaining, and is the only Subaru on sale locally that's offered with two-wheel drive. It also set a precedent when it went on sale in 2012, becoming the first Australian-sold car to be offered for sale directly through Subaru Australia's website.

Prices for the BRZ range from $35,270 to $44,160 for the BRZ (base) and BRZ TS Limited Edition.

This vehicle is also known as Toyota FT86, Toyota GT86, Scion FR-S (2012–2016).

Subaru BRZ Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru BRZ here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Factory vs. Aftermarket: which oil is better?

    I would use the factory recommended oil, at least while the car is under warranty. Once the warranty has expired you could use the Mobil oil and shouldn’t experience any problems.

  • Narrow SUV with enough power?

    The XV is the narrowest vehicle of its type, no other SUV we checked was as narrow, which makes your quest a difficult one. Finding a vehicle that has more grunt isn't difficult, you can check the specs of the various cars on the web, but I think you'll have trouble finding a car that fits your width needs. You might need to rethink the type of car you want.

  • Failed power steering in BRZ?

    You'd like to think that once fixed it won't happen again, particularly as it is happened to you once before, but no one can predict what might or might not happen in the future. No one can guarantee 100 percent that it won't happen again, but Subaru should be able to explain what caused the problem and give you a reasonable assurance that it wont re-occur. The dealer's responsibility is to fix your car; Subaru's should be to explain what happened and why so you can get back to driving your car with confidence. If the dealer doesn't want to help go directly to Subaru and ask to talk to an engineer. If you don't get any satisfaction go further up the company ladder until, if necessary, go all the way to the top. If the repairs are going to take some weeks as you suspect you should ask for a loan car so you're not without wheels.

  • Mustang, 370Z, IS350F, 86 or MX-5?

    If you don’t want a convertible, which rules out the MX-5 as my easy first pick, then the 86 is the car for driving enjoyment on a reasonable budget. But don’t overlook its Subaru twin, the BRZ, which is my choice of the two. Both get The Tick, having shared our Car of the Year award.

Subaru BRZ Interior

The Subaru BRZ took the world by surprised when it launched back in 2013, but very little has changed in the interior of the sporty two-door since. That means the dashboard looks dated - check out the images to see what we mean - and while the trim and leather elements were decent by the standards of the day, expectations ahve changed over time.
