Subaru BRZ to spark online interest
Customers can register their interest from Monday May 3.
At this stage, Subaru estimates first new BRZ arrivals during quarter four this year.
Subaru General Manager, Blair Read, said: “We’ve been staggered by the amount of interest in new BRZ.
“The level of dealer enquiry and calls to our own customer service centre indicates massive interest among sports car fans and we look forward to sharing more details closer to launch.”
He added: “We only have around 50 of the current generation BRZ left, and it’s likely there will be a gap in supply until the new model launches. So, it’s timely to alert customers that the new model is coming, and to register their interest if they’re keen to be among the first in line when deliveries begin.”
Specifications and pricing for Australia’s second generation BRZ are yet to be confirmed, but at last November’s global unveil, Subaru confirmed it will have engine capacity increased to 2.4 litres, delivering almost 18% more torque than the superseded manual model and over 20% more torque than the outgoing automatic.
Models equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission gain a revised Sport mode.
BRZ’s new body delivers approximately 60% greater front lateral bending rigidity and approximately 50% more torsional stiffness. The stiffer body contributes to improved steering response, more nimble handling and better stability.
Automatic transmission models feature Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology – a new feature in BRZ.
