New 2022 Subaru BRZ Coming This Fall: Confirmed

Subaru’s confirmation that the all-new Subaru BRZ is on the way will make fans happy.


  • Styling is evolved.

  • Power is increased.

  • This time, it’s for real.


Most fans of the Subaru BRZ (and Toyota 86) are already quite happy with their lightweight, extremely nimble handling sports car. The complaint, for some, is that the BRZ deserves more power. Beyond that, up until recently, the Subaru Coupe’s future was in doubt but no more as the Japanese brand has confirmed that the new car is coming this fall.

We’ve had the distinct pleasure of driving the Subaru BRZ (Scion FR-S, Toyota GT86) on a number of occasions since their launch for the 2012 model year. The true issue we’ve all found is the antiquated HMI system but honestly, it was always about the drive.

And there was always room for more power and, according to autocar.co.uk, it’s coming. It is said that the new BRZ (GR86) will be powered by a 252-horsepower turbocharged petrol engine, which is likely to be the Ascent/Outback’s 2.4-litre mill. This represents quite a bump compared to the outgoing car’s 205 horsepower. And, a boosted engine is always good news for tuners.

Underpinning the new cars should be Toyota’s TNGA platform, in a RWD configuration of course, which means that refinement should also improve, dramatically even.

The image shared by Subaru on their Twitter account gives very little away but we know the new 2022 BRZ will be a proper evolution of the car. We’ll all see more before December.
