Subaru BRZ US at 2013 Subaru BRZ U.S. Pricing Confirmed

Subaru confirmed official pricing of the new BRZ sports car for the American market at the New York Auto Show. It is priced from $26,245 (including a $750 destination charge) with a six-speed manual transmission. That is good value, considering the standard kit the BRZ is blessed with. The automatic version will cost $27,345, but is anybody interested in that one?

The BRZ, as I’m sure you have heard by now, was convinced as an all-new sports car based on a bespoke platform developed jointly by Toyota. It features Subaru’s own 2.0 liter boxer engine, which at 200 hp is not gutsy enough, but it’s smooth and low-slung.

Fitted as standard to the BRZ is a limited-slip diff, which in combination with the manual gearbox, makes the car an absolute charm to drive, and five-mode driver-selectable Vehicle Stability Control system and traction control.

2013 Subaru BRZ also delivers impressive fuel economy, with manufacturer-estimated ratings of 9.6 L/100 KM city / 6.6 L/100 KM highway / 8.3 L/100 KM combined with the 6-speed manual transmission, and 8.3 L/100 KM city / 5.9 L/100 KM highway / 7.2 L/100 KM combined with the 6-speed automatic transmission.

There’s a Sport-tech Package available for the car which pushes the price to $28,245 with the manual and $29,345 with the automatic gearbox, but adds  dual-zone automatic climate control for the entry level BRZ’s manual HVAC system, heated front seats as well as keyless access and start with illuminated engine start/stop button.

The BRZ comes as stadnard with a top-notch touchscreen navigation system that includes:

  • 6.1-inch LCD screen
  • AM/FM stereo
  • Map upgrades via SD card
  • Single-disc in-dash CD player
  • 2-channel power amplifier
  • 8 speakers
  • MP3/WMA capability
  • Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity
  • Bluetooth audio streaming connectivity
  • iPod control capability
  • USB port
  • Smartphone integration (iPhone iOS 4.0 compatibility)
  • 3.5 mm auxiliary audio input jack
