Test Drive: Can Subaru BRZ Deliver Fun Without Big Horsepower? (Video) – Ruge’s Subaru

24 Mar

Longtime sports car fans know that having fun behind the wheel doesn’t require a big engine pumping out 500 horsepower. Why else would cars like the Mazda Miata, Volkswagen GTI and Honda Civic Si have so many devotees? Earlier sports cars from the MG TD to the Fiat X1/9 were more about light weight and sharp handing than all-out speed.

Now Subaru is picking up on that tradition with the BRZ, a two-seat coupe with a 200-hoprsepower four-cylinder engine powering the rear wheels. Small cars with rear-wheel drive are extremely rare in today’s car market, especially if you are looking for an affordable one.
