Is The Subaru BRZ tS Making A Comeback In The U.S. For The 2020MY?

The Subaru BRZ tS appears set to return to the U.S. market for the 2020 model year, as Environmental Protection Agency documents have revealed.

Fuel economy data published online by the EPA lists the two standard automatic and manual 2020 BRZ models and, beneath them, a tS version with a six-speed manual that’s been rated at 20 mpg city / 27 mpg highway, making it slightly thirstier than the regular BRZ.

Subaru introduced the BRZ tS for the 2018 model year and, while it didn’t feature any changes to the 2.0-liter boxer four-cylinder, it certainly looked the part. Modifications included the fitment of a manually adjustable rear wing finished in raw carbon fiber as well as front and rear under spoilers. Additionally, the BRZ tS was equipped with strut tower braces, pillow-ball joints, draw stiffeners for the front suspension, STI-tuned springs and Sachs dampers, Brembo brakes and lightweight 18-inch wheels with sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires.

The EPA data doesn’t provide any details about what upgrades the 2020 tS will have over the standard model, but it will probably be identical to the 2018 model. So, no, much to the dismay of thousands of fans, the output will remain the same – which, of course, has always been the case despite many reports, over the past years, to the contrary.

Finally, while the 2018 tS started at $34,355, we’ll have to wait until Subaru discloses the 2020MY BRZ pricing to find out about the current version.
