Subaru reveals why its 2022 BRZ missed out on turbo power

The 2022 Subaru BRZ was officially unveiled last week, but, to the disappointment of many fans, the low-slung sports coupe still doesn’t have a turbo – now the Japanese manufacturer has revealed the reason why. The new-generation model is powered by a naturally-aspirated version of Subaru's 2.4-litre 'FA24' petrol four-cylinder 'boxer' engine, which sends 170kW and 249Nm to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.
