The new 2017 Subaru BRZ sports coupe is now available sporting an attractive list of improvements over the previous model. The manual BRZ will be listed at $32,990, over $1,230 more affordable from the previous model year with the automatic coming in at $34,990, a saving of $1735 on the 2016 model, both before on-road costs.

Colin Christie the Subaru Australia Managing Director said: “BRZ is an even more compelling package when you consider the upgrades to specification at less cost to customers.”

“Despite exchange rate pressures, our strong relationship with the factory has produced a great result for BRZ fans and that’s reflected in the volume of showroom interest since we teased the specification upgrades in August.”

With multiple awards under its belt, the BRZ has proven itself with niche sports car fans who value its driving characteristics, value and safety features offered in every new Subaru.

The 2017 Subaru BRZ is available for order now with deliveries slatted for November.
