The Subaru BRZ came hot out of the gate, but things have cooled off in the last year or so. In an attempt to reignite interest in the BRZ, Subie has revamped the sports coupe and added some extra power. Sadly, the latter isn’t courtesy of a turbo, so it is only a small boost to 205 horsepower. While all of this is old news, Subaru recently announced how much these updates will affect the price of its resident sports coupe.
The 2017 Subaru BRZ will continue with two trim levels, Premium and Limited. The Premium trim will act as the base level and the 2017 version will run $25,495, which is a $100 price increase when compared to the 2016 model. The range-topping Limited trim will see a more significant $250 price increase. These prices include the only transmission option any buyer should consider—the six-speed manual—but there is a six-speed auto option on the Limited model that adds $100 to the price tag.
New for the 2017 model year is the Performance Package, which is only available on manual-equipped Limited models. This package runs $1,195 and adds in Brembo four-piston front calipers and two-piston rears, performance rotors, SACHS performance shock absorbers, and 17-by-7.5-inch wheels.
For buyers looking for something a little more exclusive, there is the limited-edition Series.Yellow model that runs $29,695. Subaru will limit this model to only 500 units and it’ll feature a yellow body, black badges and mirrors, the aforementioned Performance Package.
The 2017 BRZ will start rolling into dealers in September 2016. Folks seeking the Performance Package or the Series.Yellow model will have to wait until early 2017.
