Subaru’s new Model Year 2017 BRZ sports coupe is now on sale, with an attractive new price, making its long list of cosmetic and technical changes even more appealing.

The on sale activation comes ahead of cars arriving in showrooms towards the end of November.

Subaru Australia Managing Director, Colin Christie, said: “BRZ is an even more compelling package when you consider the upgrades to specification at less cost to customers.
“Despite exchange rate pressures, our strong relationship with the factory has produced a great result for BRZ fans and that’s reflected in the volume of showroom interest since we teased the specification upgrades in August.”
A multiple award winner, BRZ has established a niche among sports car fans attracted by its fun driving characteristics, value and the intrinsic safety featured in every new Subaru.
