CHERRY HILL, N.J., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that Automobile Magazine has named the Subaru BRZ to its prestigious All-Star list for 2014, repeating the award bestowed upon the rear-wheel-drive sports car last year.
Judged against every new car currently on sale in the United States, the BRZ was one of just 10 cars selected to the All Star list. This year marks the second consecutive All-Star award for the BRZ.
"The Subaru BRZ is among the few modern cars you can enjoy driving at the limit without losing your license," says Jean Jennings, editor-in-chief of Automobile Magazine. "It's a hoot to drive. It has a perfectly balanced, rear-wheel-drive chassis and perfectly placed controls. On top of all that, it doesn't cost a fortune to buy or operate. No wonder it's an Automobile Magazine All-Star for the second year in a row."
Like so many BRZ owners, Automobile's editors were swayed by the coupe's performance both on a closed course and on the open road. After selecting Subaru's coupe as one of its All-Stars, the magazine embarked on a "great American road trip" from Michigan to New Orleans, further illustrating the BRZ's remarkable flexibility.
"We are doubly proud to have been selected by the editors of Automobile as an All-Star for the second year in a row," said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. "This rousing endorsement from Automobile is a testament to the BRZ's performance both on a race track and on everyday roads."
