Subaru of America, Inc. will be selling the 2016 Subaru BRZ with a starting price of $25,395. The new BRZ is an epitome of basic sports car design with a focus on low vehicle weight, an ultra-low center of gravity and precision steering. The new BRZ is available in either Premium or Limited trim, both bringing out superior performances from an already outstanding vehicle.

Performance features for the BRZ include sport-tuned suspension with front strut brace and TORSEN limited-slip differential. For the 2016 model year, the BRZ comes fitted with Subaru Starlink 6.2-inch Multimedia System with a 6.2-inch single-touch gesture display. It also comes with an AM/FM stereo with HD Radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Radio Data Broadcast System and single-disc CD player.

It also comes with Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming, iPod control, iTunes Tagging, a USB port and an auxiliary input jack. Other technological features include smartphone integration system like Aha and Pandora, as well as STARLINK cloud app iHeartRadio, Stitcher, Calendar, Music Player, News and Weather.

A rear vision camera is standard equipment for the 2016 model of the Subaru BRZ. Limited trim models will have features like a body-color trunk spoiler, fog lights and Alcantara trimmed interior and Keyless Access. Seats are covered with Alcantara inserts and leather bolsters.

The starting price for a six-speed manual Subaru BRZ Limited is $27,395 while the tah for an optional 6-speed Electronic Direct-Control automatic transmission version -- with steering wheel paddle-shift controls -- is at $28,495.

The BRZ Limited features a dual-zone automatic climate control (Premium model has a manual HVAC system) with the standard All-Weather Package that includes dual-mode heated front seats and heated side mirrors. Furthermore, the Subaru BRZ Limited features illuminated dual visor vanity mirrors. Its front door courtesy lights illuminate when the doors are opened. The BRZ is powered by a 2.0-liter BOXER engine that delivers up to 200 hp of max motive power.

In April, Subaru announced that its Subaru Tecnica International (STI) performance division is expanding into the United States. In line with this announcement and to show its full intent, the Japanese carmaker unveiled the Subaru STI Performance Concept at the New York International Auto Show.

Subaru of America, Inc. remarked that the STI Performance Concept signals the expansion of STI into aftermarket parts, STI-tuned cars and motorsports. Interestingly, STI-engineered parts are already starting to replace Subaru Performance Tuning (SPT) aftermarket parts in the US.

Fuji Heavy Industries – the parent of Subaru -- established STI as its motor sports division in 1988. STI went to an incredible start in 1989 when it tuned a first-generation Subaru Legacy that was able to break the FIA-certified world speed record over 100,000 km.
