News Subaru Announces Pricing On 2019 BRZ Sports Car

  • New Series.Gray limited edition of only 250
  • SUBARU STARLINK™ navigation system offers over-the-air updates
  • 205-hp SUBARU BOXER® engine
  • Choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission
  • Priced just $200 more than previous model year
Subaru of America, Inc., today announced pricing on the 2019 BRZ model line. The fun to drive sport coupe offers updated STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology as well as a special edition Series.Gray in Cool Gray Khaki with unique exterior and interior trim. The 2019 Subaru BRZ will be offered in three trim levels: Premium, Limited and new Series.Gray when it arrives at retailers this fall. Pricing on the lightweight, rear wheel drive sports car begins at just $200 more than last model year at $25,795.

The 2019 BRZ Series.Gray is the latest in a series of limited-edition BRZ models. The Series.Gray is immediately recognizable by its striking exterior color, unique black 17-inch alloy wheels, black exterior badges and black foldable exterior mirrors.

New for the Limited trim is the updated 7.0-inch Multimedia Navigation system which now includes over-the-air updates through Wi-Fi. Additional new features for the system include “Tune Mix” which mixes songs from music channels stored as presets and “Sports Flash” which provides information and updates on pre-selected sports teams.

The Subaru BRZ, renowned for its ultra-low center of gravity and precision handling, is powered by a 205 hp, 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER engine, six-speed close-ratio manual transmission and TORSEN® limited-slip differential (optional automatic transmission model has 200 hp). The BRZ is designed with 2+2 seating and fold-down rear seatback to give the coupe everyday practicality and comfort.

BRZ Premium
Subaru is known for its legendary value, and the 2019 BRZ is no exception beginning at $25,795. The Premium trim’s long list of standard features includes LED headlights, rear vision camera, power door locks, power side mirrors, power windows with auto-up/auto-down feature, remote keyless entry and engine immobilizer. Standard Welcome Lighting provides better nighttime visibility when approaching or exiting the vehicle. All trim levels now come standard with dual USB ports in the dash.

Inside, black upholstery with contrasting red stitching is adorned throughout the cabin including leather-trimmed door panels, center dash, shifter boot and parking brake lever. The leather-wrapped steering wheel integrates control switches for audio, cruise control and Bluetooth®. In all BRZ trim levels, Incline Start Assist holds the vehicle momentarily in position while the driver accelerates, to prevent roll back on an incline.

BRZ Limited
With a price starting at $28,645, the 2019 Limited adds LED fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, and Keyless Access with Push-Button Start. Front seats on the Limited trim are upholstered with Alcantara® inserts and leather bolsters, and standard dual-mode heated front seats feature the BRZ logo embroidered in red on the seatbacks. A full security system augments the standard engine immobilizer. Other amenities standard on the Limited include front door courtesy lights and an illuminating vanity mirror for both driver and front passenger sun visors.

Also standard on the Limited is a 4.2-inch color combination meter positioned next to the tachometer featuring vehicle performance data including lateral-g, accelerator pedal position, braking force, steering angle, oil and coolant temperatures and battery voltage. An integrated stopwatch function can be used for recording track lap times.

Performance Package
Subaru offers a Performance Package for drivers who demand even more from a sports car. The Performance Package is available for the Limited trim with manual transmission. The brake system is upgraded to Brembo® four-piston calipers and rotors on the front and dual- piston calipers and rotors on the rear. SACHS® Performance shock absorbers are added to all four corners for improved ride and corning stability. Also included in the package are unique 17-inch x 7.5-inch black aluminum alloy wheels. The BRZ Performance Package is well-priced at just $1,195.

BRZ Series.Gray
Priced at $30,140, the 2019 BRZ Series.Gray is based on the 2019 Limited model equipped with 6-speed manual transmission and Performance Package. The BRZ Series.Gray comes in Cool Gray Khaki with 17-inch black-finish alloy wheels, foldable exterior power mirrors with Crystal Black Silica finish and black BRZ and SUBARU badging.

The cabin of the special edition BRZ features an exclusive combination meter visor and upper interior door trim in Grand Luxe® with red stitching, and the day/night mirror uses a frameless design. A total of 250 BRZ Series.Gray will be produced for the 2019 model year.

SUBARU STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology
SUBARU STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology provides hands-free connectivity and entertainment through the vehicle’s multimedia or navigation system. Both STARLINK Multimedia systems for BRZ offer a high-resolution touchscreen; Bluetooth® hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming; AM/FM stereo; SiriusXM All Access Radio (4-month free subscription) and HD Radio® as standard. The 2019 BRZ Premium is equipped with the 6.2-inch Multimedia system that includes 6.2-inch high resolution touchscreen, single-disc in-dash CD player and eight speakers. The multimedia system also offers smartphone integration with Pandora®, Aha®, iHeart® Radio and Stitcher™.

Standard for the BRZ Limited is the STARLINK 7.0-inch Multimedia Navigation system with 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen; smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay® and Android® Auto and STARLINK cloud applications; SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link (subscriptions required); Near Field Communication; voice activated controls for phone and text; and voiced activated navigation.

Yeah, that would really kill sales, just like with the Forester (only 5% preferred the turbo).

Mazda just added 26hp to the Miata. Let's see how it does.
Coming up with excuses for Subaru at every turn is getting old ... fast.

Correct; but, at a minimum, there's still a 300 lbs difference between the 2 cars (comparing the heaviest Miata RF to the lightest BRZ/FRS/GT86).
So, in most cases, the 2019 Miata has the power-to-weight advantage.

That being said, if I had to chose between the 2, I'd still pick a BRZ/GT86 because I just don't fit comfortably into a Miata .

Good thing for Subaru that Toyota still wants theirs and they make money on EVERY 86/BRZ made.

IMO the BRZ is a great platform on which to make a spectacular car.

As it comes... meh.

It's an overpriced half-Impreza. It's loaded with the crappy partsbin parts from a $18,000 Impreza 2.0i. It's woefully lacking in lightweight suspension pieces, or even alignment adjustments for a sports car. It's one magic sauce is a low CoG... it's just too bad the magic sauce is spread on a patty made from bits not fit for sausage.

can you imagine what it would be like if you bit into an orange, expecting the apple flavor and texture?

comparing apples to oranges is very important.
