If this had been the only Gen 1 car, I wouldn't have purchased it. I guess we'll see what Toyota does with it for final judgement.



As an aside, I think they've worn out the "it isn't about a straight line" mantra. I agree with it, but bottom line is that it is a little about the straight line.

I particularly liked these two points in the write up


"Running counter to the current trend of power over precision, the 2022 Subaru BRZ focuses on simplicity and fun."

"The overall impression is modern, agile and powerful"



Translation:
So look folks we know it still isn't powerful but damnit we gave the impression it is!

Oooh, just noticed the 13.5:1 compression ratio as well. Good luck to those wanting to go forced induction, but might be good for some decent power gains for NA tuners.

I suspect the text value is the correct one, a 7500 rpm redline seems high for this engine, but I hope to be proven wrong.

Oh wow, I didn't even notice the faux todoroki style fender that blends to the lower body work. That is probably the worst angle I've seen on the car. The bumper is very kia stingerish to me.

I've mixed feelings about this.

Exterior wise looks kinda inconsistent. The main body is exactly the same, but has a different front fascia (which looks a little busy to me) plus that tacked on looking side vent that was cribbed off a Lexus F car. Rear fascia looks a bit generic. Just doesn't seem to mesh together nicely. I'd like to see what Toyota did, its most likely the big mouth like the renders might make it look better than the smiley face that the subaru has.

Interior looks messy, maybe the Toyota version might look better since the giant tablet smack dab in the middle of the dash might be a Subaru bezel thing. Theres too many conflicting design elements going on. The passenger side of the dash looks straight up out of a 2021 lexus IS, the center stack has been rejigged and seems to just be placed anywhere, the gearshift surround area has that drive focused wrapped look, that doesnt seem to match anything. It looks like that center console that is now covered MAY be curved upward to provide as an armrest? its hard to tell. Some buttons and switchgear are new, but others like the traciton control button doesnt even look like they tried to integrate it..its like they just left a hole there and plunked in the current one in the same current spot. I am not a fan of digital gauges and this one doesnt do it any favours.

Materials look to be better though. The current one has some hard plastics everywhere with the main touch points either leatherette or nuluxe alcantara (and upper dash is the rubbery material). This one seems to have better materials across the board.

Front and rear seats look exactly the same.

That motor? FA24 (well 2.4L, anyone know its engine code?) and D4S makes a return. Maybe it'll feel more like "this is what the first gen should have been?", rather than "This is more powerful!" I always felt that 230 might be an ideal number for this car from the beginning to get the "underpowered" crowd off its back. Hope it gets better fuel economy and maybe can use regular fuel?

Ill have to wait and see to sit in and test drive it.

Good point, but if those are official pictures (which I'm pretty sure they are), they wouldn't put the redline at 7500 on the tach just to screw with you.

The current one redlines at 7400rpm does it not?

Better than I expected

I like it... lots of tweaks from my 2013 that sound nice...

Pending a test drive and seeing Toyota’s version, I am fairly sure I will get a gen2!

Given all the negative rumors I was truly expecting to be disappointed.

There will be a few discrepancies for a while. Even the 17 facelift had some.
I would always go with the Subaru released text over pictures.

Sounds like they got rid of the torque dip according to the Subie test driver

New motor? That surprises me in light of the doom and gloom covid era we live in. My guess is they took a parts bin approach to it which would be fine. Looks like it makes e85 power but more refined and obviously on pump. I just wanna hear "better than mazda" a few more times lol
