Subaru launches new version of the BRZ

The Subaru BRZ, twin to the Toyota 86, has had its first major upgrade since release, and it’s landing in Aussie dealerships at a cheaper price than the first car.

Starting at $32,990, it’s $1230 less than the outgoing model, while the automatic version now costs $1735 less, now $34,990.

Power is up by a modest 5kW and 7Nm, the suspension has revised tuning, and there’s a fresher look with new headlights.

In the new updated Subaru BRZ expect to see:

  • Significant engine refinements in manual transmission models
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control TRACK mode
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Wider and lower look from new bumper design
  • New 17-inch alloy wheel design
  • Fully automatic air-conditioning
  • New steering wheel
  • Upgraded infotainment
  • Enhanced instrument gauges
  • Cabin upgrades, including red stitching and BRZ-embossed front seats (option)

Subaru Australia’s Managing Director, Colin Christie says the new model is a great package with spec upgrades at a lower cost and is already gaining interest.

“Despite exchange rate pressures, our strong relationship with the factory has produced a great result for BRZ fans and that’s reflected in the volume of showroom interest since we teased the specification upgrades in August.”

The new 2017 Subaru BRZ will be in dealerships this month.
