2020 Subaru BRZ Review

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Subaru BRZ?

The 2020 Subaru BRZ is a rear-wheel-drive sports coupe that seats up to four people. It’s powered by a 205-horsepower, horizontally opposed 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Competitors include the Mazda MX-5 Miata, Fiat 124 Spider and Volkswagen Golf GTI. The BRZ is related to the Toyota 86.

What’s New on the 2020 Subaru BRZ?

The tS trim level returns for 2020 featuring STI-tuned Sachs shocks and springs, an engine compartment brace, Brembo-brand brakes, a low-profile rear spoiler, special badges, and a leather-and-Alcantara interior with contrast red stitching. It’s finished exclusively in Ceramic White paint and wears 18-inch matte-bronze wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Production is limited to 300 units.

What Features in the 2020 Subaru BRZ Are Most Important?

The BRZ’s relatively light curb weight and low center of gravity help give it exceptional handling. It’s also affordable — as sports cars go — with a base price of less than $30,000 including destination.

Performance attributes include a Torsen limited-slip differential, summer tires and a double-wishbone rear suspension. The available Performance Package adds Brembo-brand brakes, Sachs shock absorbers and dark gray 17-inch alloy wheels. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are standard. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Subaru BRZ?

The BRZ has all the elements of a driver’s car, including great handling, communicative steering and a slick-shifting manual transmission. It’s a joy to fling the BRZ around. The car’s modest power output has been a sore spot for some, but if you’re willing to keep engine rpm up, the BRZ can be a lot of fun in everyday driving. Steer clear of the automatic transmission, however, because it can be slow off the line.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
