What intrinsic qualities does the 2024 Subaru BRZ in Albuquerque NM possess that attracts so many discerning drivers?
First off, let’s take a close look at the new 2024 Subaru BRZ in Albuquerque NM to begin to understand its appeal. Styling sets any car apart from the crowd, but a sports car parked against the curb on a street or parking lot can be something to be proud of. The low and sleek lines of the BRZ look classic, but are functional in terms of outright speed. From the front grille and peeled back aerodynamic headlights, the body lines sweep up and over the fenders and hood. It’s a classic look that many appreciated on the Ferrari 348 back in the day. While some might say it’s a bit derivative, at least Subaru stylists cribbed from some of the best! But the headlights also have a small LED strip under the module that serves as the daytime running light (DRL) and marks the BRZ as a modern car. But more to the point, the front styling leads to the sharp rake of the windshield and together reduces the frontal area and overall coefficient of drag (Cd) to allow the BRZ to cut through the air efficiently. Look just aft of the fenders and notice the functional air outlets that vent hot air from the back of the engine bay. This car was built for speed! Where the curves of the front fenders and hood rise to meet the aerodynamically shaped A-pillar and roofline, it leads the eye to the middle of the BRZ. While the roof itself has minimal sheet metal creasing, the sides and doors use slight creases that add to the visual appeal and integrate the bulging rear fender line into the design. The sharply sloping rear deck lead to a sensible rear spoiler, flanked by two LED taillight modules. The color matched side skirts and small duckbill spoiler offer a sharp monochromatic look in any of the seven BRZ paint options available.
But inside the BRZ is where the delights open up even further, and opening the hood reveals Subaru’s latest 2.4-liter boxer engine. Normally-aspirated and with 228-HP on hand, the FA24 is mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission to power the rear wheels. EPA mileage figures show impressive efficiency there as well with 21 city, 27 highway and 25 combined ratings. Together with the BRZ’s low center of gravity and near 50/50 weight balance, it promises a sweet drive on either city streets or highways. The BRZ communicates what’s going on as you sweep though slow and fast turns with springs and sway bars tuned to allow flat cornering. There’s a reason the BRZ has won multiple racing championships, and you can practically feel the reasons why through any of the three models (Premium, Premium Plus and BRZ tS) available in the line. All three trim levels come equipped with a Torsen limited slip differential (LSD) and dual exhaust that mark it as a true sports car.
Safety Still Matters
But the 2024 Subaru BRZ in Albuquerque NM also offers the latest technology and safety features that Subaru is known for. The latest version of Subaru’s EyeSight system comes standard, and includes the manual transmission models for the first time. Active features include adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking system, lane control and sway alert using sensors to prevent trouble when you least expect it. The driver remains the most important part of the BRZ as the cockpit is designed around them to deliver information, feedback and adjustability most efficiently. From adjustable sport seats to the 7.0” digital pod in front, the driver becomes the center of the universe. There’s also an 8.0” central screen that allows access to multiple entertainment options, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
