Subaru Teases the 2022 Subaru BRZ for the First Time

2022 Subaru BRZ

Before the Toyota Yaris GR, Mazda 3 Turbo, Hyundai Veloster N and the rest of the current incredible pack of affordable performance cars, there was the Subaru BRZ and its Toyota twin. Subaru hasn’t given up on its boxer-powered sports coupe, and now there’s a second-gen to take on all that competition.

A new Subaru BRZ before the end of the year

Real photo of the new Subaru BRZ. Attendees at the 2020 Subaru Technica International Subiefest World Record Attempt & Charity Drive at OC Fair & Event Center Costa Mesa, CA were given a quick preview of the sports car. Luckily, someone snapped a photo of this BRZ camouflaged vehicle.

Subaru ended production of the first-generation BRZ at the end of July without going into any details about when its successor would arrive. Fast-forward to October, a teaser posted on social media announcing the world premiere of the "all-new" sports car this fall. That could mean that the rear-wheel-drive coupe will debut in November.

Once again twinned with the Toyota 86, the new Subaru BRZ will likely be on the list to debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show before the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. For now, we just have this single teaser image showing the wheel design and a bit of a camouflaged body. The front brakes appear to be cooled via ventilated arches while those 10 wheels are apparently borrowed from the Toyota GR Yaris.

That's all Subaru would like to reveal at the moment, with absolutely no information regarding technical specifications.

There have been conflicting reports on whether the BRZ and 86 will finally get turbocharged, but Intel's latest suggests the dynamic duo will stick with its naturally aspirated powertrain.

The cars are claimed to get the Subaru FA24's 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 217 horsepower (162 kW) and 177 pound-feet (240 Nm) of torque. That's slightly more than the current 2.0-liter unit rated at 205 hp (152 kW) and 156 lb-ft (211 Nm) of torque (or 151 lb-ft with the automatic gearbox).
