Subaru BRZ gets £2,500 price cut, now priced from £23,995

Subaru BRZ is a great 2+2 sports coupe with a front engine and rear wheel drive. Not a typical Subaru with its RWD, but still lot of fun and an alternative to almost identical Toyota GT86. Basically if you like Subaru, your choice is BRZ and if you are a fan of Toyota, then obviously GT86 is your pick.

The BRZ just got more interesting, thanks to a price cut of £2,500 reduction in its on-the-road price. From 1 May the BRZ range will start at just £23,995 on-the-road for the SE Lux model with a 6-speed manual and from £25,495 for automatic models.

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”.

Power continues to come from a 198bhp 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed Boxer petrol engine with a low centre of gravity and rear-wheel drive for engaging driving thrills.

Toyota recently updated the GT86 for 2015 model year with minor updates to suspension, interior and aerodynamics.

There is currently no word is BRZ also getting such updates or not.
