Subaru UK has revealed the price details as well as two variants of the new BRZ sports vehicle, ahead of its entry into the showrooms this summer in the United Kingdom. The automobile is already recognized to deliver a thoroughbred driving experience due to its light weight, high-revving 2.0 liter Boxer engine superb rear-wheel-drive chassis balance and low centre of gravity.
The vehicle will provide great value for the money with its confirmed on-the-road price which ranges from only £24,995 to £27,995.
Customers will have a good selection of trim levels and interior equipment for the Subaru BRZ, which will be offered in 2.0i SE and 2.0i SE Lux variants with an option to choose from a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic with paddle shift operation, which is available for £1,500 more.
A more basic S model is expected to be introduced in 2013. The SE and SE Lux variants will have 17-inch alloy wheels, fully automatic air conditioning with dual-zone controls and a sophisticated torque-sensing limited slip differential.
They will also have electrically-folding door mirrors with heaters; leather-trimmed steering wheel, gearshift lever and parking brake; keyless Smart Entry with push-button engine start; and a six-speaker high-quality audio system with radio, CD and iPod connectivity.
The SE Lux will also be featuring heated leather seats. Special paint finishes (£500) and pioneer satellite navigation (£1,000) are the only available extras offered as options.
Also, there are six bodywork colors to be made available: Sterling Silver Metallic, Satin White Pearl, Crystal Black Silica, Dark Grey Metallic, WR Blue Mica and San Remo Red. To boost the ownership experience, all buyers of Subaru BRZ units will be entitled to the automaker's unique Everything Taken Care of (ETCo) aftercare package, which is the most comprehensive one in the United Kingdom.
A brainchild of Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation (geniuses in the automotive world), the Subaru BRZ is a rear-wheel drive sports car featuring a horizontally-opposed 2.0-litre BOXER engine designed with an outstanding steering response and driving pleasure that everyone will surely love.
The BOXER engine in the BRZ was positioned even closer to the ground than previous Subaru models. Its center of gravity is considered to be the lowest in the current market. This, combined with a lightweight chassis, allows driving pleasure to be increased to dizzying new heights while maintaining peace of mind.
In addition to a low-mounted Boxer engine on a specially designed sub-frame, overall height is merely 1,300 mm, coupled with a wide and low body of a stylish coupe at 1,775 mm. That seems small, isn’t it? Yet, it provides 2+2 seating and a trunk with generous space. The BRZ is a sports car but it can also be ideal for long trips with its surprising utility.
