Take A Look At The 2017 Subaru BRZ With New Image Gallery

The 2017 Subaru BRZ follows hot on the heels of the updated Toyota 86, which came to North America to replace the FR-S after the demise of the Scion brand.

Announced earlier this year, Subaru’s two-door coupe sets itself apart (or at least, tries to) from the previous model year with a handful of mild tweaks including, a modded front bumper, LED lighting units on both ends with a different design on the front, standard daytime running lights on all grades, and a new set of 17-inch wheels.

Inside, unless you’re a fan, most changes will fly under the radar, being limited to a redesigned steering wheel and updated HVAC controls, while the car’s name is embroidered on the front headrests. As a final touch, the Japanese brand added a 4.2-inch screen (make that a 6.2-inch one on the Premium grade) to the right of the tachometer.

A 5 horsepower and 5 lb-ft (7 Nm) output boost is nothing to shout home about, but a few extra horses in the stable are still better than none. Finally, Subaru tweaked the suspension, while offering a new optional Performance Package boasting the same chassis upgrades as the range-topping GT in Japan.

    Like I’ve said all along – a Subaru without AWD? Forget it!

      A BRZ without a turbo? Forget it!

      If it had the power to back up it’s looks I don’t think most would mind.
      But until it gains 50HP (and TQ) or looses 400lbs, its just a girls car.

        Kinda like the TC no!?

      • Matt

        It doesn’t really have any looks, it’s about as exciting visually as its power output.

      And I’ve said, drive it, it’s not and never was meant to be a 4wd coupe.
      How many of those do you know?

      • Craig

        A Subaru without AWD is not a Subaru.

        • Obsequious Lickspittle

          A Subaru without a boxer is not a Subaru?

    Brembos looks nice but wake me up when the BRZ Sti comes out.

    • Matt

      What gave it away, the ‘Brembo’ sticker on the callipers?

      • Ellz

        Ah sorry. My fat fingers hit the wrong keys.

  • Six_Tymes

    I cant understand why this and the gt86 don’t weigh less. back in the day 944’s weighed much less than these. if they weighed less people (including myself) wouldn’t mind the current hp and trq.

      Safety features. How well would a 944 survive current NCAP testing? I’d say not very well.
