Subaru has just released pricing information on the latest 2022 Subaru BRZ, a car that improves on its predecessor in a number of ways. For one, there’s more engine—and more power.
The 2.4-liter H-4 now pumps out 228 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, jumps of 23 hp and 28 lb-ft over the previous car’s 2.0-liter engine output. More important than the raw numbers, the new car’s torque delivery is improved, with peak torque at a relatively low 3,700 rpm (compared to the old car, which required spinning to 6,400 to unleash max twist). The chassis is stiffer, with redesigned suspension, and the interior is vastly improved. With all that revision and performance improvement, you’d expect the price to go up. But it hasn’t.
