Subaru BRZ

One of our favourite driver’s cars, the Subaru BRZ, is £2,500 cheaper as from today (1 May 2014), meaning that you can now buy one for just £23,995 for the BRZ SE Lux model with manual transmission, and £25,495 for automatic models.

Powered by a 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed Boxer petrol engine with a low centre of gravity and rear-wheel drive, yet capable of 39.8mpg in automatic form, the BRZ has been reduced in price to ensure clear differentiation from the all-new All-Wheel Drive WRX STI saloon, Subaru’s flagship performance model.

The WRX STI arrives in showrooms during May, priced from £28,995  – £4,000 less than the previous model.

The changes in prices are possible thanks to improvements in currency exchange, explains Paul Tunnicliffe, Managing Director of Subaru UK. “A more favourable exchange rate between the pound and yen has allowed us to reduce the price of a number of models in recent years, and our performance range – the BRZ and WRX STI – are the latest to benefit.”

In the last twelve months Subaru UK has also reduced the price of the All-Wheel Drive XV compact crossover range, while the new Forester has seen its price unchanged over previous versions.
