Subaru’s 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.
The Japanese brand has now revealed that top-specification models 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.
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.
The BRZ is available in six colours, including Subaru’s trademark WR Blue Mica, Sterling Silver, Satin White, Crystal Black Silica, Dark Grey Metallic and San Remo Red.
The carefully conceived powertrain packaging allows Subaru’s celebrated horizontally-opposed 147kW 2.0-litre Boxer engine to be positioned lower than ever before. The 2+2 coupe has 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 121kW per tonne.
