2:Surprising fuel economy
Even when driving the car aggressively, it returned a whopping 29 mpg. This is a touch better than the EPAs rating of 28 mpg in combined driving situations, but what’s surprising is even with the transmission mostly set in sport, or manual mode (and during ‘spirited’ driving) the BRZ maintained this fuel consumption number. It would be hard to drive the BRZ more aggressively than we did, so it’s likely that tamer, more disciplined drivers will enjoy even better fuel consumption.
This comes across as even more surprising when you realize how much fun the BRZ is to drive, and how quickly it can move when the going gets twisty. Most sports cars drink fuel quickly when driven hard, but that never got in the way of fun in the BRZ.
