Subaru BRZ 0 to 60 MPH Time Is...

Industry News

The Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S could very well be the poor man's Lotus (in terms of driving enjoyment).

This is the moment many people have been waiting for. Edmunds Inside Line has just announced their official results of the 0 to 60 mph time from their test of the 2013 Subaru BRZ. Although they claim the car is "one of the most rewarding cars we've ever driven", it hit the 60 mph mark in 7.3 seconds. The publication claims that this mostly because the "rev limiter in second gear kicks in at 59.2 mph, requiring a second shift to achieve the milestone and slowing the time considerably."

The car hits the quarter-mile mark in 15.3 seconds at 92.1 mph. They continue by claiming that if you "judge the BRZ on its acceleration alone and you'll be disappointed. But it should surprise exactly no one that 200 horsepower pushing around 2,734 pounds isn't going to thrill John Force." Like its Toyota GT-86/Scion FR-S twin siblings, the BRZ is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine making 200hp and 151lb-ft of torque. Buyers have a choice between either a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic with paddle shifters.

However, no one should be completely disappointed by these results, as Edmunds concluded that "the BRZ offers a level of engagement that, until now, has been either too costly or too impractical for the average enthusiast." Base price for the FR-S starts at $24,930 and the BRZ shouldn't be much higher.
