If you want a sports car that presents you with an unparalleled performance, consider a used 2014 Subaru BRZ Premium.
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder under the hood cranks out a feisty 200 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. This boxer engine, as Subaru calls it, is outfitted with direct-injection technology, in lieu of a turbocharger. This results in low-torque, with high revving. And the BRZ definitely likes to howl. The recommended manual transmission delivers a brag-worthy fuel economy of 30 mpg on the highway.
Handling in this coupe is nothing short of exceptional. The Car Connection explains that coil springs and low-mounted struts, partnered with the double-wishbone setup and front brace, bring the speed first from the nose of the car and carefully transfer it back to the tail. In layman terms: hit the gas and the BRZ will zoom you into the sunset with unfettered power.
You wouldn’t be considering the BRZ if you weren’t looking to get into some trouble. Fortunately, this Subaru is all too happy to become your co-conspirator. For starters, you get DSC Sport setting for stability control, as well as the full-off mode. You’ll also enjoy a Torsen limited-slip differential, which gives the back wheels a bit more grip around tight corners.
