NEWS: Subaru Announce BRZ Specifications

Subaru has announced the specifications of the eagerly awaited BRZ Coupe, with a typically Subaru-generous kit, three trim levels – including a stripped-out track day spec model – and with the car being backed by ETCo aftercare. Subaru say: "Our stunning new 2+2 coupe has already generated high levels of interest at dealerships, with many customers placing orders before pricing and standard equipment have been announced. Top-specification models will come with 17-inch alloy wheels, a torque-sensing LSD, front, side, curtain and knee airbags, MP3 connectivity, dual-zone climate control and LED daytime running lights. The driver-focussed BRZ will also come with Subaru’s VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) and can be fitted with either a six-speed short-shift manual or paddle-operated automatic transmission. And a second, lower-spec model will also be made available a little later in the year, as will a third ‘stripped out' version, which promises to be the perfect solution for those who wish to tune and fettle the BRZ to their own tastes, as well as track-day enthusiasts." Yay to that! Drift car anyone? Yes please! The BRZ will be available in six eye-catching colours, including Subaru’s trademark WR Blue Mica, Sterling Silver, Satin White, Crystal Black Silica, Dark Grey Metallic and San Remo Red. Subaru’s celebrated horizontally-opposed 200PS normally-aspirated 2.0-litre Boxer engine is to be positioned lower than ever before, with the lowest centre of gravity of almost any vehicle, with half the BRZ’s mass sitting below knee height. It promises a power-to-weight ratio of 164PS per tonne and this, in conjunction with its advanced lightweight chassis and use of cutting-edge lightweight materials, "endows the BRZ with exceptional handling characteristics." And, as with all new Subarus, the BRZ will be available with the brand’s new three-year Everything Taken Care of (ETCo) aftercare package, which offers a host of potential benefits worth over £7,000, free-of-charge.
