Subaru of America has announced the prices for the all-new 2022 BRZ, starting from USD 27,995 (approx.RM118,306). There will be two variants available – Premium and Limited – with the latter asking for USD 30,495 (approx.RM128,871).
Both prices are for the manual variants. The automatic versions of the Premium and Limited costs an extra USD 2,000.
Standard equipment includes LED headlights, a new 7-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Active Sound Control feature, 17-inch wheels, dual-zone air-conditioning, hill-start assist, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
There’s now even a G-force meter. When Track Mode is selected, the speedometer changes its display – from round dials to a linear graph with color display.
In the more expensive “Limited” variant, upgrades or add-ons include 18-inch wheels, suede upholstery, cornering headlamps, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a blind-spot monitor. Safety is now also enhanced with a driver’s knee airbag.
Optional safety features include adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking (front and back), lane departure warning and high beam assist. These features are bundled under the Subaru EyeSight driver assistance system.
First touted to be turbocharged, the Subaru BRZ was instead introduced with a 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated engine with 228 hp, 249 Nm and a 7,000 rpm redline. Output is 28 hp and 44 Nm higher than the previous 2.0-litre models.
The engine is paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox with a limited-slip differential as standard, while a 6-speed auto with Sports mode is optional.
