An extremely low and rearward engine placement means you get a sports car with optimal balance, an extremely low center of gravity, lightning reflexes, and exceptional rear-wheel-drive handling dynamics.

The BRZ is designed to perform like a sports car should, with independent MacPherson struts in the front and independent double wishbone suspension in the back.

An ultra-quick 13.1:1 steering ratio provides instantaneous response to driver inputs and an outstanding feel for the road. The limited-slip differential provides both improved grip and predictable behavior, even when pushed to the limit.
The Performance Package will turn your BRZ into a hard-nosed competitor with Brembo® performance brakes for supreme stopping power, SACHS® performance dampers for enhanced stability, and gray 17 x 7.5-inch, 10-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels for an exclusive look.

To keep a safe distance from the car in front of you, choose the distance you want to preserve, and EyeSight will automatically adjust your speed to maintain your selected distance.
EyeSight monitors your position on the road and will alert you if you stray out of your lane.
Pre-Collision Braking helps you avoid or reduce frontal impacts by alerting you and applying full breaking force in emergency situations.
EyeSight detects objects in front of the vehicle that you are likely to hit. It will reduce the power from the engine to help minimize the possible impact force and frontal impact damage.
Before you can avoid danger, you have to see it coming. The Rear-Vision Camera gives you a clearer view of the area behind your vehicle, so you can be in charge of your surroundings.
Using radar sensors, the Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if a vehicle is sensed in your blind spots. Another feature of this system, Lane Change Assist, alerts you with a flashing indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle approaching in a neighboring lane while you signal for a lane change.
The available Keyless Access with Push-Button Start system features touch-activated door unlock and push-button start functions. It allows you to unlock, enter, and start the car without the key ever leaving your pocket or purse. Select models also feature PIN Code Access, a system that allows the locking and unlocking of the vehicle when the remote transmitter is not available by using a numerical security code.
