Subaru has recently released a new commercial video where the BRZ sports car is being promoted in Japan.
After the Subaru BRZ has been teased for quite some time and eventually hit some international automotive events only to make its way onto the market in the end, the model is finally here and it’s close to hitting the Japanese dealers. As you can see from the video posted below, Subaru has chosen a unique way to promote its BRZ sports car in Japan, and a soap opera is the best way to describe it, because I really don’t have the nerve to talk about it.
The Subaru BRZ is expected to be successful, but I don’t understand why someone would buy it when you have a better option near you, the GT 86, which is basically the same car, powered by a Subaru Boxer engine and developed by Toyota.
As a reminder, the 2013 Subaru BRZ has been officially presented at the 42nd edition of the Tokyo Motor Show, being designed as a joint project between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine which is identically tuned as the one found on the Toyota GT 86, developing a total output of 197 horsepower at 7.000 rpm and a peak torque of 151 lb-ft available at 6.600 rpm. Power is being sent through the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission with a short stroke shift level. An optional six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifts is also available.
