Subaru’s 2022 BRZ Claims The Throne As America’s Lightest 2+2 RWD Car

Subaru’s BRZ is an acquired taste, but the sporty, tuner-savvy platform is undeniably unique in both form and function. This week, the Japanese automotive manufacturer revealed its plans for the 2022 model year release of the vehicle, enhancing its performance capabilities and remaining true to the car’s visual identity.

The 2022 Subaru BRZ doesn’t do anything drastic in terms of aesthetics. When compared to its predecessor, it’s easy to see that its external structure remains largely the same, with the only notable changes arriving in a (subtly) widened wheelbase, reinforced chassis mounting system, and an enhanced sub-frame architecture that increases the platform’s rigidity by 60-percent. Where the car truly shines, however, is in the implementation of a more prodigal powertrain. The 2022 BRZ garners an additional 23 horsepower and 28 lb-ft of torque, due to the inclusion of a new 2.4-liter, naturally aspirated boxer engine, bringing it to a captivating 228-horsepower, overall. This might not seem like much until you realize that the BRZ’s manual iteration clocks in at only 2,798 pounds, making it the lightest 2+2 RWD production model in the U.S. automotive market.
