After evaluating 40 engines in daily driving situations, 10 editors chose the BRZ 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER engine as one of wardsauto.com’s 10 Best. It was the third Subaru engine to win the award. Scores based on its power technology, observed fuel economy, relative competitiveness, and noise, vibration, and harshness characteristics determined its placement on the list.
Among the BRZ engine’s highlights, Ward’s cited its production of 100 horsepower per liter, excellent fuel economy, quality powertrain technologies, and comfortable drivability. Considered a vanguard for cars of the future, the BRZ delighted the editors because it combined light weight, fuel efficiency, and affordability in a package that was thrilling to drive.
