How Does the Subaru BRZ Compare to the Competition?

Rising through the ranks, quickly becoming one of the more popular ponies in the stable is the Subaru BRZ.  Wondering how this whip has achieved automotive ascendancy in such a short amount of time?  Pondering how it stacks up to other vehicles with the sports coupe segment?

If so, tag along with us today and we'll be sure to provide you with the inside scoop.

As you might imagine, the real showstopper of the BRZ is its drivetrain.  This rear-wheel-drive roadster boasts a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and is capable of producing a very plenteous 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque.  A six-speed manual gearbox is standard across the range, though all models except the top-tier Series.Blue trim can be had with a six-speed automatic, instead.

There are three unique trim levels within the BRZ lineup, each offering a distinctive array of amenities.  The entry-level Premium is astonishingly appointed, serving up standard features like 17-inch alloy wheels with summer tires, a limited-slip rear differential, automatic bi-xenon headlamps, a 6.2-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth compatibility, a navigation platform, and more.

Stepping up to the mid-level Limited nets one foglights, a rear spoiler, keyless ignition and entry, simulated suede and leather upholstery, as well as heated front seats and heated mirrors.

And, at the top of the range is the limited-edition Series.Blue model.  With only 1,000 examples of this trim produced, the Series.Blue is no doubt one very special vehicle.  Offered in either blue or white, this model includes the contents of the Limited trim, and adds distinctive stylistic tweaks, black wheels, red brake calipers, interior accent stitching and a black-and-blue interior theme.  It's an absolute stunner.
