Default alt SHIFT - 2013 Subaru BRZ reviewed.


This time on alt SHIFT, eurojax reviews a 2013 Subaru BRZ. No drifting. No burnouts. Instead we find out if four big dudes can fit in it comfortably, whether your can crawl into the back seat from the trunk, and if you can take it on a moderately bumpy hill.


Thanks to Valley Subaru of Longmont and Kostamojen for the lowdown on all things BRZ.

I'm looking hard for a track or some sort of closed course that I can show up to and put the spurs to these cars.

Maybe I'll schedule the next review around an auto-x. That's not a bad idea!

I'm not a fan of 3rd gear, or the shift feel in general.

That and the clutch pedal travel is long, but the engagement area is small. I'll draw a picture.



The green zone is the engage/disengage point. Yellow would be somewhat acceptable travel, but it goes all the way into the red.
