•    Subaru’s expert Boxer® engineering culminates in proper rear-wheel drive sports car
•    Subaru BRZ exhibits unique highlights and special features
•    5-year/ 105 000 km maintenance plan included as standard

A front-mounted Boxer® engine. A six-speed manual gearbox. Rear-wheel drive. That low-slung driving position. Sports bucket seats. The Subaru BRZ is the epitome of a sports car, where these evocative factors come together to create a unique driving experience. Developed alongside the Toyota 86, the Subaru BRZ is an exhibition of true Subaru engineering know-how and expertise, especially when the BRZ’s Boxer® engine is considered.

Boxer® punches above its weight

The Subaru BRZ’s Boxer® engine’s low-mounted position within the engine bay as well as its own low centre of gravity – due to its flat design – contribute to lowering the overall centre of gravity of the BRZ which translates into widely enhanced road-holding and handling dynamics. Producing 147 kW and 205 Nm, the lively Boxer® engine gives the BRZ an energetic and fun-to-drive character.

A specification level to match its good looks

With such an attractive body, the Subaru BRZ also sports a comprehensive list of standard features which contribute to a premium driving and ownership experience. Smart features like bi-xenon headlights, keyless access and push-button starting, a premium audio system and 17-inch alloy wheels are further bolstered by unique, BRZ-specific features like the aerodynamic rear spoiler and the Subaru performance exhaust system, both of which are fitted as standard as well.

Subaru provides exclusive after-sales backup for BRZ


Included in the R389 900 retail price of the Subaru BRZ, Subaru Southern Africa offers a unique ownership package which includes a full maintenance plan for five years or 105 000 km, which complements the standard 3-year/ 100 000 km warranty and Subaru Assist package.

Marketing Manager at Subaru Southern Africa, Ashley Lazarus, comments: “The BRZ is a true sports car for driving enthusiasts and we believe that the enhanced standard specification as well as the added value of the full maintenance plan give the BRZ an advantage over its competitors. That, and the fact that the performance exhaust and the cheeky rear spoiler really give it a special, Subaru-style sound and presence.”
