Turbo Version of Subaru's BRZ's FA-Series Engine Debuts in Japanese Legacy



We recently confirmed that we won’t be seeing a turbocharged Subaru BRZ anytime soon; however, we now have a fairly good idea of what kind of power such a model will eventually bring. Subaru has dropped the first turbocharged variant of its 2.0-liter, FA-series flat-four engine—the naturally aspirated version of which powers the BRZ and its Toyota/Scion brethren—into the refreshed Japanese-market Legacy sedan and wagon.

The turbo FA20′s output numbers are impressive: 300 PS and 400 Nm of torque. In the JDM Legacy, the engine is bolted to Subaru’s CVT, likely for fuel-economy reasons.
