2015 Ford Mustang vs 2015 Subaru BRZ
Another competitor for expected 2015 Ford Mustang comes from Japanese company Subaru. For 2015 that company plans to compete with a legendary Mustang, which will be probably introduced in next couple of months. The Subaru BRZ have been tearing up in sales lately, becoming the top selling car. This was a surprise because Subaru hadn’t any plans for a turbocharged model any time soon. Looks like that plan is changing with the recent announcement from Subaru about the addition of a turbocharger onto the FA-20 engine – the engine that the BRZ comes with.
2015 Subaru BRZ engine and performance
Under the hood of the base models of 2015 Subaru BRZ we should expect FA-20 turbo engine with 296 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Subaru also plans upgrades to its FA-20. It is expected to get another engine within 325 and 350 hp, which could make this car a screamer. Transmission is expected to be 6-speed manual, and as an option it is mentioned that AWD (all-wheel drive) will be offered.
RWD 2015 BRZ, within 200 hp, sprints 0-100 km/h in 6,4 seconds. If we add 125 horses and AWD, that distance could be passed in 4,6 sec. Quarter mile should cover in 13 seconds and hit the speed of 177 km/h.
The current BRZ uses 215 mm (8.46-inch) width tires. The new BRZ is expected with the taller and wider rims, probably 225 mm (8.85-inch) tires. This gives the Subaru more rubber to bite the road with, also increasing its handling and braking performance.
2015 Subaru BRZ design and interior
The 2015 BRZ is expected to have Subaru’s famous STI designation, much like the WRX STI. That package comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, smoked headlights and taillights.
Full leather interior, but not just plain old leather, contrasting stitching to the seats, STI badge to remind you what’s under the hood, everything should make this car very impressive, outside and inside. In addition, the BRZ Turbo will come standard with all of the gadgets and gizmos that the regular BRZ currently has, including: voice-activated GPS, 8-speaker stereo system, Bluetooth, keyless entry and many more things as optional.
2015 Subaru BRZ price
Using a model WRX as a basic template could take us to near price of the new 2015 Subaru BRZ. Estimate price by experts is roughly $34,000. In comparation to 2015 Mustang – 4,000 more dollars for base models. For performance tuned and styled vehicles it goes up by needs of the buyers.
