If there's one thing we've got here in northern Virginia, it's plenty of highways to burn rubber across in a new sports car. Fredericksburg pleasure-cruisers have some of the best picks around, too. There's VA-3 West or VA-20 South, which can take you out to Charlottesville or Culpeper, not to mention here to Orange, as well as US highways 1 and 17, among others. More have told us that there's only one ride for the day-trip, too -- the all-new Subaru BRZ. Luckily, you can check it out for yourself, right here!

For one, whether you go for the standard 205-horsepower, 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER engine or the available 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter model, you'll find that its flat rather than in-line design delivers the balance of low center of gravity and efficient power delivery that you need to feel every minute of the action. But power's not all it promises. Bring an independent suspension, a rear limited-slip differential by TORSEN, available SACHS dampers, and optional Brembo performance brakes into the mix, and you can expect razor-sharp precision handling to boot. There's also a choice of either a fully synchronized standard six-speed manual transmission to keep things engaging or an optional six-speed auto for ease of use and smooth sailing. That means the new BRZ is economical with fuel, too -- count on up to 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, according to EPA estimates.

Of course, it's distinctively Subaru in its creature comforts and tech-savvy as well. Cloth and available heated, Alcantara-and-leather-trimmed seating options appear, as do available dual-zone auto climate control and a selection of two optional STARLINK&#trade; infotainment systems. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come available for smartphone integration, and Pandora, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, Aha, SiriusXM, and HD Radio options offer plenty of the listening opportunities to give your trip its soundtrack. You can also rely on help getting around from available integrated TomTom navigation.

In short, 2019 BRZ may be a Fredericksburg thrill-seeker's dream performance coupe, but these advancements aren't all it offers. Visit us here on Madison Road at Reynolds Subaru for a test drive, and we'll show you around all it has to offer!
