To be exact, local variants of the BRZ will have  237 PS at 7,000 rpm, while the models in North America only have 231 PS and models in Japan have only 235 PS. This increase in power is due to the higher compression ratio. However, the torque figure is the same for all regions, 250 Nm @ 3,700 rpm. The car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds with the manual variant and 6.8 seconds with the automatic variant.
