    SUBARU BOXER Engine

    The SUBARU BOXER engine powers the SUBARU BRZ to new heights of precision and excitement. We’ve placed this 2.0-litre engine lower, made it more compact and moved it closer to the driver. It’s the first engine of its kind to feature direct and port fuel injection technology, which enhances both its responsiveness and fuel efficiency. It’s a one-of-a-kind design that offers a new kind of satisfaction.

    SUBARU BOXER Engine

    Why SUBARU BOXER Engine?

    The boxer engine derives its name from the horizontal movement of its pistons, which resembles the quick, jab-like motions of a boxer's fists. Although not a global standard, Subaru remains solely committed to the SUBARU BOXER engine because it embodies the Subaru promise of delivering enjoyment and peace of mind to all passengers. It also represents our steadfast commitment to technological innovation and engineering excellence.

    What makes it unique?

    Unlike traditional “in-line” or “V-type” engine configurations, the pistons’ opposing movements inherently counteract each other, naturally helping to reduce vibration without the need for counter-balancers, which add weight and complexity.

    AERODYNAMIC PERFORMANCE

    Using air to our advantage.

    The aluminium-alloy spoiler gives the SUBARU BRZ a more stylish, aggressive presence on the road as well as enhanced aerodynamic performance. Its shape helps direct airflow for more efficiency and also increases downforce for more control and stability at speed.

    Lightweight Body

    Simplicity in design and extensive use of high-tensile steel has helped reduce weight while making the chassis more rigid and precise. What’s more, an aluminium bonnet further lightens the vehicle, while bringing the centre of gravity even lower.

    Sports Car Drivetrain

    Laid out symmetrically, the SUBARU BOXER engine puts the crankshaft perfectly in line with the driveshaft for tremendous stability and dynamic agility. And the rear-wheel drive configuration allowed us to move the engine farther back and gives you precise control over your cornering attitude. We combined this agile platform with a newly designed quick-ratio steering system that’s tuned to react with astounding precision and immediacy to your input.

    Low Centre of Gravity

    A low centre of gravity keeps drivers closer to what matters: the tarmac. The SUBARU BRZ uses its low-profile, high-output SUBARU BOXER engine to help concentrate its mass to a point just 460 mm* above the ground. The result—sublime, predictable handling that bestows confident enjoyment upon drivers of all skill levels.

    Performance Suspension

    A sophisticated tuning of the fully independent suspension brings out every bit of agility and responsiveness the SUBARU BRZ has to offer. MacPherson-type front struts increase rigidity and a feeling of direct control by allowing the SUBARU BOXER engine to be placed even lower in the chassis. A double-wishbone design in the rear increases tyre grip off turns. All of this results in a SUBARU BRZ with improved ride comfort while maintaining driving stability.

    TRACK Mode

    TRACK mode gives the driver more options for a wider range of control with four available modes from normal to sporty driving. Drivers have the option to turn off Vehicle Stability Control, allowing you to fully unleash the sporty nature of your SUBARU BRZ.

    Increased Aerodynamic Performance

    The rear spoiler wing provides more than just a high-performance look. The new, sleek pedestal-type rear spoiler made of aluminium has been raised off the trunk lid for faster airflow beneath the wing, increasing downforce. The result is better aerodynamic performance, and increased control and stability.
