Can you have a road-going sports car for less than $40,000? In a world where car prices are rising rapidly, most automakers don’t offer the top trim of vehicles for a budget-friendly price. That’s not the case with the 2024 Subaru BRZ tS. This top-end sports car could be everything you want for some fun between the lines.

The driving experience is all of the fun in the 2024 Subaru BRZ tS

Subaru continues to make the BRZ, which has become one of the most enjoyable sports cars on the road. It’s not the fastest or most powerful, but it can be the perfect car at the right price. As The Drive reports, the tS model has a set of Hitachi dual-mode shocks at the front to improve the suspension feel and driving experience.

The rear shocks aren’t made by Hitachi but are tuned to work in concert with the front suspension. This makes it easy for owners to carve up the road.

What else does the tS model include?

This Subaru sports car comes equipped with:

  • High-performance Brembo brakes
  • 18-inch gray metallic-finished wheels
  • Crystal Black Silica mirror caps
  • Shark fin antenna
  • Blue interior accent stitching
  • STI-branded starter button

The BRZ tS is only offered with the 6-speed manual transmission. This adds a little more fun to the overall driving experience.

What makes this Subaru fun to drive?

The added features give the 2024 Subaru BRZ tS better handling and improved comfort, but the real fun is found in the car’s setup. The manual shifter provides crisp gear changes, and the impressive low center of gravity, courtesy of the boxer engine layout, gives this car an engaging feeling on the road. Add the RWD layout, and you’ve got a car that tears up the corners and rockets down open country roads.

This impressive Subaru sports car uses a 2.4-liter boxer 4-cylinder engine producing 228 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. While paltry numbers in the sports car world, it’s enough to deliver impressive quickness and acceleration for an exhilarating driving experience.

Can you drive the BRZ tS every day?

The starting price for the Subaru BRZ tS is only $36,465, which makes it an affordable option. Despite being a coupe, the BRZ is comfortable and easy to drive every day, as long as you’re not part of a carpool group. The small engine returns 20 city/27 hwy mpg, which isn’t stellar but won’t keep you from using the BRZ tS as a daily driver.

Could the 2024 Subaru BRZ tS top trim be your ideal sports car? It certainly could be if you want affordable fun and aren’t concerned with horsepower figures.
