Subaru BRZ becomes less expensive in UK

The Subaru BRZ was introduced at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show and although it hasn’t passed such a long time since then, the company is already reducing its price. The automobile manufacturing division on the Japanese company Fuji Heavy Industries is famous worldwide for using the boxer engine layout in most of its vehicles above 1500 cc and also for the use of all wheel drive train layout which have become the standard equipment for the Subaru cars.  The Subaru BRZ corresponds exactly to this configuration.

Well, Subaru is not among the best sellers in the auto industry, but it has its fans. The UK dealership reduced the price of the BRZ model with 2,500 GBP. It now starts at 23,995 GBP OTR for the entry-level SE Lux variant with the six speed manual gearbox, while for the automatic gearbox the price begins at 25,495 GBP. The coupe is still powered by the same 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated engine which produces 200 PS (147 kW) and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) exactly as in the recently updated Toyota GT 86 and the Scion FR-S.

The Subaru officials consider that the lower price is possible because of the favorable exchange rate between the pound and yen since IM Group is in charge of importing the BRZ from Japan to United Kingdom. We find the same equipment on the BRZ, although its price has been cut off. Among the noticeable elements we mention Alcantara and leather seats, a Torsen rear-axle differential and steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. In the last twelve months Subaru UK has also reduced the price of the All-Wheel Drive XV compact crossover range, so it is becoming more and more an affordable brand.
