Utilizing Subaru’s naturally aspirated 200-horsepower horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER engine design, the BRZ is a true sports car that does not sacrifice everyday comfort, practicality or efficiency: the BRZ is capable of achieving up to 7.0 litres per hundred kilometres highway fuel economy (with 6-speed automatic transmission). Fundamental to its true sports car character, the BRZ’s 2.0-litre engine combines low weight with high strength, high compression and high-revving responsiveness. The engine delivers 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 6,400 – 6,600 rpm, with a high specific output of 100 hp/litre. The BRZ’s SUBARU BOXER engine fuel injection system uniquely combines direct injection and port injection technology. A direct-type fuel-injection system, which sprays fuel directly into the combustion chambers rather than upstream into the ports, provides a cooling effect in the cylinders. This enables use of a very high 12.5:1 compression ratio to extract maximum energy from the fuel. In light- and medium-load conditions, the port fuel injectors help produce precise combustion, increasing performance and efficiency.
