Subaru, the automobile manufacturing division of Japanese transportation conglomerate FHI (Fuji Heavy Industries) priced its rear-drive BRZ sportscar. It starts at $26,245 with $750 destination charge. The Limited variant with automatic transmission will be available for the price of $29,345. The base model known as Premium will be equipped with alloy pedal covers, 17-inch alloy wheels, a touchscreen GPS navigation system with a six-inch LCD screen and HID headlights. Like power locks and windows, keyless entry and a USB port, the Bluetooth connectivity is also standard. Opting for Limited trim will get you dual-zone automatic climate control, Alcantara seat inserts with leather bolsters, keyless ignition, a spoiler and fog lights.
Motivation for the BRZ, a badge-designed sister vehicle of Scion FR-S comes from a boxer 2.0 liter powerplant, which is good for pulsating 200 horsepower with 151 pound feet of torque. The engine is mated to either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles as option. Aficionados will like the double wishbone suspension and Torsen limited-slip differential. A limited number of Subaru BRZ coupe models will hit dealerships before the end of spring.
