Although the BRZ has gone through a mid-life cycle refresh, which added a lot of modifications and upgrades, the prices have been kept at bay – undoubtedly making the sports coupe fans rejoice.
Subaru’s rear-wheel-drive sports coupe, the 2017 BRZ, can be had from $26,315 in its most affordable specification – Premium and packing the manual gearbox. Go further up to the Limited trim and you’ll shell out $28,465 with a manual and $29,565 if you’re comfortable more with the six-speed automatic transmission. These prices have only gone up by $125 when discussing the 2016 BRZ premium and by $275 comparing the Limited trim from last year.
The changes to the 2017 Subaru BRZ included tweaks for the 2.0-liter flat-four engine that increased the power level from 200 to 205 horsepower, as well as 151 to 156 pound-feet of torque (automatic-transmission versions have to do with the former specifications). The company also reworked the suspension, came with a modified styling for the front and rear bumpers and upgraded the cabin.
Now the 2017 Limited trim can be specified with a $1,195 Performance package – Brembo four-piston front brake calipers, Sachs shock absorbers, and special black 17-inch alloys. Buyers looking for something special can also opt for the Series.Yellow – which is sold in just 500 copies. They will get a catchy yellow paint job, the Performance package, as well as yellow nuances inside. The limited series costs $29,695 – which is just $35 more than a BRZ Limited with the Performance pack upgrades.
