This popular sports car is present since 2012, so it’s no wonder that the company is working on the next-generation model, which should arrive as 2020 Subaru BRZ. The new generation is about to bring a lot of novelties, according to the latest reports. We are about to see a completely new design, which will include completely new styling and mechanics, as well as a completely new engine developed by Subaru. The new 2020 BRZ should arrive in a year or two.
The 2020 Subaru BRZ is about to come with a bunch of novelties. Of course, the most notable changes will be those in terms of styling. At the moment, we can only speculate about the new model’s look. We are pretty sure that the company will stick to the proven recipe. This would mean a classic two-door coupe fastback body style, the same that characterizes the current model. Naturally, we’re expecting to see the application of the brand’s newest design language. In terms of mechanics, we will see a new architecture, which will bring benefits in terms of driving dynamics, weight savings and many other aspects. Once again, Subaru will continue with collaboration with Toyota, so expect a new 86 model at the same time as well. Two models will once again share a lot of parts, especially in terms of mechanics.
Unlike other Japanese carmakers, Subaru always had a pretty conservative approach, especially when it comes to the interior design. The new 2020 Subaru BRZ won’t be an exception, so the new cabin will evolve from the previous one in many ways. A dashboard will get a new layout, but don’t expect some strange lines and other radical changes. On the other side, a list of standard equipment should be pretty rich, and it should include not only numerous gadgetry but a whole bunch of advanced safety systems as well.
This will probably be the most interesting novelty for the 2020 Subaru BRZ. The new generation should arrive with a completely new powertrain. While the current model relies on a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter inline-four unit, the new one will come with a much more powerful 2.4-liter twin-turbo engine. The new engine comes with a max output of around 260 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. For comparison, that is 60 hp more compared to the current model. Considering that one of the biggest rivals, Mazda MX-5 is also getting more power from the next year, this seems like a great move. Besides MX-5, the new 2020 Subaru BRZ will compete with Fiat 124 Spider, as well as with much bigger muscle cars like Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro.
2020 Subaru BRZ Release Date and Price
We are still waiting to get some official information about the launch date. Various unofficial reports suggest only rough estimates – in a year or two. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger changes compared to the current model, which goes in a range between $25,000 and $33,500 dollars, roughly.
