Expert Quotes:

22 mpg city, 30 highway (manual); 25/34 mpg (automatic)
U.S. EPA





The Subaru BRZ is rated at up to 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, despite its high-strung sports car personality. That's due in part to its direct-injection fuel system, its tall high-gear overdrive, and its very light curb weight–coming in at only 2,800 pounds.

But even more impressive is that in a first drive of an automatic BRZ, including about 280 miles of varied conditions—none of it steady or sedate—we saw an average 30 mpg.

BRZ models with the automatic transmission are rated a bit higher (25 mpg city, 34 highway) than those with the six-speed manual (22/30)—in part perhaps because the manual is geared a bit lower.

One note for those interested in pinching pennies: The BRZ requires premium fuel.

Conclusion

The BRZ earns solid gas-mileage numbers, especially for the sportscar niche.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
