Subaru Offering UK Buyers An Updated Package With 2017 BRZ

For its 2017 model year, Subaru’s BRZ has been updated in just about every area, from the exterior to the interior, plus of course the powertrain, suspension and in terms of safety.

Out front, the 45-degree stepped accent on the bumper limits airflow into the intake and improves the handling and the ride while offering a wider, lower stance.

Other exterior upgrades include the full-LED headlights, newly designed rear lights, an aerodynamic pedestal rear spoiler and a new 10-spoke design for the wheels.

Inside, the BRZ features a new 4.2″ color LCD multi-information display, packing a G force meter, steering angle gauge, brake force gauge, lap timer and torque/power corves. There’s also a new steering wheel with better grip, boasting audio control switches. Throughout the cabin, there are higher quality materials, including Alcantara and leather seats.

On the road, the BRZ continues to deliver a linear driving feel. In order to increase the overall driving experience, Subaru increased the strength of the cylinder blocks, buffed and polished the valve stems, decreased the weight of the rocker arms and made a lower friction camshaft – thus resulting in a more responsive, fuel efficient engine.

Even the dampers have been redesigned to dampen vibration and reduce body roll while increasing cornering precision.

For drivers who prefer a sporty feel above all else, there’s a new TRACK mode to use, whereas urban drivers can benefit from the new Hill Start Assist system.

The 2017 Subaru BRZ will be available this Spring in SE Lux trim only with either a manual or automatic transmission. UK pricing will also be confirmed in due course.

    I’ve always thought this car looked ‘old’ since it was released. It still looks like something from the late 90’s..

    • TOMSON

      so damn right and the facelift didn´t bear down the funky digital clock inside…that´s unbelievable …

      • Obsequious Lickspittle

        I know, right?
        Your driving at 9/10ths around a track on a big slide and you look down at the clock and think, What the f**k! Why am I driving this piece of sh1t?

      That’s what i love about 🙂 This car is ideal for 90’s sports car fans that wanted to avoid an actual 90’s car that has been abused and not reliable.
