Official: Subaru boss confirms next-generation BRZ

Article by Andrew Christian, on July 8, 2014

Despite the fact that some rumors killed the second-generation of the Subaru BRZ, Yasuyuki Yoshinga a.k.a. president of Subaru’s parent Fuki Heavy Industries wanted to ensure the fans of the Japanese sporty coupe that a new version is coming. According to Yasuyuki Yoshinga, Subaru is planning a second-generation of the BRZ, which will be jointly developed with Toyota.

Yoshinga also added that without Toyota’s volume it wouldn’t be viable for Subaru to build the new car by itself. Although the sales of Scion FR-S fell 24 percent to 7,662 units through June 2014, Subaru BRZ sales rose 6 percent through the same month to 4,295 units.

In June 2014, both vehicles’ sales suffered the double-digit slumps. Recently, the Subaru BRZ was updated for the 2015MY and comes as standard with a 2.0-liter Boxer engine that generates 200 hp, bolted to a six-speed manual transmission.

Starting at $25,695 in the United States, excluding the $795 destination and delivery charges, the BRZ is $100 more expensive than the 2014MY and comes with larger stainless steel tailpipes tips, a simulated carbon-fiber center dash panel and a color shark fin antenna.

Also new for the 2015MY is the BRZ Series.Blue, a special edition offered only in the United States that comes with STI-branded aerodynamical body design, black 17-inch STI wheels and unique interior trims.

The special edition costs $29,490 (exluding $795 destination and delivery charges) and will be exclusively offered in WR Blue Pearl and Chrystal White Pearl colours.
