LAWRENCE, Kan., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Subaru has come to be known as the All-wheel Drive car company, its Symmetrical All-wheel Drive system is standard on every vehicle in its lineup. Subaru's Symmetrical All-wheel Drive system has been standard on North American vehicles since 1996 and continues to be an industry leader in All-wheel Drive vehicles. This year, after over a decade without one, Subaru has released the Rear-wheel Drive 2013 Subaru BR-Z in Lawrence, KS. That's right; a rear-wheel drive Subaru will be gracing Lawrence, KS streets.
With the release of the 2013 BR-Z Subaru has given the entry-level sports car market a stir. During its design phase Subaru was obsessed with weight management and the final product shows it. The DOHC 16-valve flat-4, aluminum block and heads with port and direct fuel injection has been mounted 9.4-inches farther back on the chassis than the Impreza's engine giving the car an 18 inch high center of gravity. Add to that 54/46 front to rear weight distribution and sport tuned suspension and the 2013 BR-Z in Lawrence, KS is ready to take on corners with the best of them.
All 200 ponies will be delivered to the rear-wheels by way of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. Automatic models will feature two operation modes, Drive and Sport. In Drive mode the paddle shifters can be used but inputs may be overridden at red-line or when the accelerator is floored; while the Sport mode the paddles rule the transmission. The combination of low center of gravity, reduced weight, sport tuned suspension, and 200-hp make the 2013 BR-Z in Lawrence, KS one incredible little sports car.
