The New Subaru BRZ 2.4L Fuel Mileage Is Released - Fuel-Efficiency Drops
The EPA released the new fuel mileage numbers of the all-new remodeled 2022 Subaru BRZ with the 2.4-liter FA24 Boxer engine. There's a hefty drop in fuel-efficiency as the more powerful engine will cost performance enthusiasts more for the increase in horsepower.
The next-generation BRZ is powered by a new non-turbocharged FA24 2.4-liter Boxer engine with 228 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. The BRZ gets a nice bump in power from the current 2020 BRZ's 205 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque. But the extra power comes at a cost in fuel efficiency.
The EPA rates the 2022 Subaru BRZ with a 6-speed automatic 21/30 city/highway mpg and 25 combined mpg. The 2022 BRZ 6-speed manual gearbox model gets an EPA estimated 20/27 city/highway mpg and 22 combined mpg.
The next-generation BRZ with an automatic transmission drops three mpg city/highway over the outgoing 2.0-liter BRZ engine and a two mpg combined drop in fuel mileage. The 2022 BRZ with a 6-speed manual gets one mpg less in the city, a two mpg drop highway, and combined fuel mileage drops two mpg.
Subaru engineers made the BRZ as light as possible to make up for the added weight of the new EyeSight safety technology that now comes standard in all 2022 BRZ automatic trims levels. The second-generation BRZ has an aluminum hood and a new aluminum roof which helps lower weight and the center of gravity.
What is the price of the 2022 Subaru BRZ?
The new 2022 Subaru BRZ Premium with a 6-speed manual gearbox has a starting price of $28,955. BRZ Premium with an automatic transmission starts at $30,555. The Limited (6-speed manual) has a starting MSRP of $31,455. The Limited with an automatic transmission starts at $33,255. All pricing includes destination and delivery fees.
When will the 2022 BRZ arrive in the U.S.?
The next-generation 2022 Subaru BRZ will go on sale in the early fall of 2021 and comes with a new 2.4-liter engine. The 2.4-liter engine's extra horsepower and added weight of the standard EyeSight on automatic transmission trims have additional fuel efficiency costs.
