Engine Specifications

The 2016 Subaru BRZ comes equipped with a 2.0-liter DOHC SUBARU BOXER® engine with a six-speed manual transmission. The SUBARU BOXER® is a horizontally opposed, flat-laying engine that offers a low center of gravity, resulting in smoother acceleration.

The Subaru BRZ features the STARLINK™ system with a 6.2-touchscreen display, HD Radio®, a CD player, and a USB input for external media to be played on the Subaru BRZ's eight-speaker sound system. For convenience, there's Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio streaming technology, which can be accessed using the steering wheel-mounted controls.

The 2016 Chevy Camaro contains a six-speaker sound system that features an AM/FM radio, a USB input for external media, and Bluetooth® hands-free phone connectivity. In terms of entertainment, the Subaru BRZ not only offers a touchscreen display but also two additional speakers that the Camaro lacks.

Regarding technology and entertainment, the Subaru BRZ has a clear advantage.

Sports Car Safety Features

The 2016 Subaru BRZ and the 2016 Chevy Camaro have a four-wheel anti-lock braking system that features Stability Control and Emergency Brake Assist. In terms of collision protection, the BRZ's advanced frontal airbag system contains front airbags as well as seat-mounted torso airbags and side curtain airbags for front and rear occupants.

The Chevy Camaro offers dual-stage front airbags, front side-mounted airbags, and side curtain airbags. Most of the Camaro's airbags cover the front passengers but have little protection for rear passengers. The BRZ's side curtain airbags protect both front and rear passengers.
