THE first allocation of the new Subaru BRZ has been quickly snapped up by Australian consumers keen to secure the now more powerful quintessential sports car. The initial offering of 500 vehicles was offered by pre-sale from September of this year.
The second generation BRZ has been reimagined, reengineered and redesigned – both inside and out – with more power, torque, and acceleration from a new 2.4-litre direct and port injection four cylinder horizontally-opposed Boxer engine.
It offers better handling, providing adrenaline pumping moments and an exhilarating driver experience, and for the first time, a full vision safety suite. This includes blind spot monitoring, lane change assist and rear cross traffic alert.
Automatic BRZs also introduce Subaru’s EyeSight driver-assist capabilities by adding high beam assist and reverse automatic braking.
Inside the snug coupe cockpit, a large 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system makes easy operation of key systems including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, DAB+ digital radio, satellite navigation and a number of vehicle settings.
“Subaru has a long proud history of engineering performance models that provide driving confidence and fun,” Subaru Australia managing director Blair Read said.
“The exhaustion of our first allocation of the BRZ is a true testament to the overall package the Subaru engineers have meticulously designed for the new generation BRZ.”
The current range includes two variants, known simply as the BRZ Coupe and Coupe S, with both trim levels available in either 6-speed manual or 6-speed paddle shift auto. Pricing starts from $38,990 plus on-roads.
It’s not yet known when additional vehicles will be offered in Australia, but interested customers can stay up to date at https://www.subaru.com.au/around-the-corner/register-your-interest/brz or contact their local Subaru retailer.
For customers who have already purchased their new Subaru BRZ, deliveries will commence in the coming weeks. It’s not yet known if special edition variants, similar to the previous tS offering, will be offered in the future.
