The Subaru BRZ debuted in 2012 as a compact and lightweight model. Over the past few years several insignificant updates have been made for the BRZ sport coupe. However, the 2017 model's facelift is more visible, as the vehicle has become lighter, better-looking and got more power. Now it certainly differs from its Toyota 86 twin.
The 2017 Subaru BRZ has now a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with revised ratios. The car's engine has been retuned. The 2.0-liter boxer four is able to provide up to 205 horsepower and 156 lb-ft. Some of car brand's engineers are the company's expert test drivers. All of them are absolutely convinced that these numbers are not as significant, as they seem to be. When you drive the 2017 Subaru BRZ you feel the exceptional rear-wheel drive dynamics. The extremely low engine placement allows you to get a sports car with optimal balance and lightning reflexes.
Speaking about the external changes, it's worth mentioning the Subaru's black-painted 17-inch wheels. Other styling changes include a mildly revised front end with new LED headlights and a reshaped bumper cover. The car brand offers 3 trim levels: the base Premium trim, the upper Limited grade and a new Performance Package. Subaru has developed a model, which can be truly named one of the best-handling cars under $30000. The price is not available yet, but it is clear that it will be higher than the price for the last year's model which is $26190.
