As expected, Subaru BRZ will return to Vietnam by the end of this year. Not only reappeared, this model also moved to a completely new generation.
The new generation Subaru BRZ once had a pitch in Japan with obvious upgrades compared to the old one. In addition to fine-tuning the appearance, BRZ 2022 is invested in the chassis and engine to improve the performance at the best level. In addition, this car also escapes the label of twins with the Toyota 86.
The most remarkable point in terms of performance is the engine. In the new generation, the sports coupe is equipped with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, producing 228 horsepower and maximum torque of 250 Nm – 15% higher than the old model, the threshold of rpm. maximum per minute increased to 7,000 rpm. There are two options for a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic with Sport mode capable of faster gearshifts.
The Subaru BRZ 2022 is considered the lightest 2-door sports car in North America when it weighs only 1,315 kg thanks to the use of aluminum in the roof, nose and bonnet. Vehicle size is as wide as the old one, 30 mm longer but 10 mm lower. The wheelbase slightly increases to 2,575 mm. As a result, the vehicle’s center of gravity is lower and the car trails more on the road.
The BRZ design features major changes at the top with the water droplet illumination. LED C-shaped navigation lights and turn indicators are curved and are longer than before. The bonnet has a stiffer embossed line. The front bumper has a hexagonal air cavity surrounded by a black and sharp contour line. Also by this new design, the BRZ is compared to many fans with Porsche.
The cabin of the new Subaru BRZ is almost completely transformed when the dashboard layout is located opposite the driver’s seat with many advanced technologies of the Japanese automaker, such as the 7-inch digital dashboard. function to change the interface automatically according to the driving mode. Along with that is the infotainment system with 8-inch touch screen. Compared to other 2-door sports cars on the market, the new BRZ design is still somewhat more classic.
In Vietnam, Subaru BRZ belongs to the same segment with Toyota 86 and BMW Z4. Previously, the Subaru BRZ was a rare sports car on the road because the number of sales was not much, plus the price of nearly 2 billion VND was also a big barrier for this model in the domestic market. Only those who are really passionate about 2-door sports cars – traditional Japanese rear-wheel drive will choose BRZ. The price of the Subaru BRZ 2022 in Vietnam is currently unknown, but it may be the same price as the previous generation.
Meanwhile, the Toyota 86 is almost a “twin” version of the old Subaru BRZ with a selling price of about 1.6 billion dong, but this model is no longer in the product category. about more than 3 billion.
Subaru BRZ will make the 2-seater sports car segment in Vietnam more vibrant, although this model is quite picky. Currently only BMW Z4 available in this segment.
