At that point, the 2022 Subaru BRZ offered in both manual and automatic transmission options, was priced from RM229,245 (on-the-road, without insurance) for the manual variant, and from RM239,245 for the automatic variant.
It has since come to our attention that starting prices for both variants have increased by around RM20k, from the 1st of May onwards. Those who have placed their bookings before the 1st of May will not be affected. According to our sources, there will be no changes in specification while the waiting list is now between seven to eight months.
Whether or not it’ll deter you, here are a few things to consider about the all-new sportscar. The new BRZ is now powered by a 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated boxer engine (as opposed to a 2.0-litre unit before) with 237 hp and 250 Nm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox with power sent (as you’d expect) to the rear wheels. It’s the only way we’ll have it as well.
With the extra power from the increased engine capacity, the BRZ is quicker from 0 to 100 km/h; 6.8 seconds in the automatic model and 6.3 seconds with the manual gearbox. Top speed also defers; with the automatic variant capable of a 216 km/h top speed, while the manual is capable of 226 km/h.
Aside from the noticeable change in exterior and interior design, the Subaru BRZ will also be equipped with Subaru’s famed EyeSight driver assistance system which includes active cruise control, autonomous emergency braking (front and rear) among others.
Standard features include 18-inch wheels, 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument cluster, Track mode, and Ultrasuede upholstery.
