Subaru reveals BRZ UK details

Subaru has revealed UK specification details for its new BRZ coupe model which will go on sale in the UK in July.

In top specification, the BRZ comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a torque-sensing LSD, front, side, curtain and knee airbags, MP3 connectivity, dual-zone climate control and LED daytime running lights.

The BRZ will also come with Subaru’s VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) and can be fitted with either a six-speed short-shift manual or paddle-operated automatic transmission.

A second, lower-spec model will also be made available a little later in the year, as will a third ‘stripped out' version for track-day enthusiasts.

The 198bhp 2.0-litre BRZ is available in six colours including Subaru’s trademark WR blue mica, sterling silver, satin white, crystal black silica, dark grey metallic and san remo red.

Prices have not yet been confirmed but are expected to be around £26,000 for the top spec model.

As with all new Subarus, the BRZ will be available with the brand’s new three-year Everything Taken Care of (ETCo) aftercare package, which offers a host of potential benefits worth over £7,000, free-of-charge.

Subaru ETCo comprises 11 different elements:

• Minor dent and scratch repairs
• Alloy wheel repairs
• Monthly wash ‘n’ vac
• Annual makeover – full valet
• Lost keys replacement
• Service collection and delivery
• Annual wheel alignment check
• First MOT cover (and contribution to repairs)
• Accident management service
• Insurance excess cover contribution
• Winter wheel and tyre storage

Subaru ETCo will be offered in addition to Subaru’s three-year (60,000-mile) manufacturer’s warranty, 12-year anti-corrosion bodyshell cover and three-year paintwork warranty, and also lasts for three years.
