Local pricing and specifications for the facelifted 2017 Subaru BRZ range have been revealed, bringing price cuts, more power and extra kit to the Toyota 86 twin.
Now starting at $32,990 plus on-road costs for the BRZ manual ($34,990 auto), the 2017 model is $1230 cheaper than its predecessor in manual form and $1735 less with the automatic.
As revealed in August, the 2017 model-year BRZ manual gets a small power bump over last year’s model, from 147kW to 152kW (at 7000rpm), and 205Nm to 212Nm (between 6400 and 6800 rpm). The six-speed auto variant, however, remains unchanged.
The engine upgrades to the manual model mirror the changes seen in the BRZ's recently-updated Toyota 86 twin.
Other headlining features for the facelifted model include the new full-LED headlights and tail-lights, a new ‘Track’ mode setting for the Vehicle Dynamics Control, hill start assist, new 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, new steering wheel design, new bumper designs, an upgraded infotainment system, an updated driver’s instrument cluster and the option of BRZ-embossed seats with contrasting red stitching.
