New 2019 Subaru BRZ Starts at $25,795
The BRZ will be available at three trim levels when it arrives at dealerships this fall: Premium, Limited, and a new trim called “Series.Gray.” The Series.Gray is a limited-edition model that makes itself stand out with unique 17-inch black alloy wheels, black exterior badges, black foldable side mirrors, and of course a unique gray exterior color.
The Limited trim received some new toys, most notably an updated 7.0-inch STARLINK infotainment system that can receive over-the-air updates via Wi-Fi. It also comes with new “Tune Mix” and “Sports Flash” features — the former mixes songs from your saved music channels and the latter provides sports updates based on the teams you preselected.

At the bottom of the range, the BRZ Premium offers LED headlights, a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, welcome lighting, and dual dashboard-integrated USB ports as standard equipment. For Alcantara inserts and leather bolsters, you’ll have to upgrade to the Limited.
Under the hood is the same 2.0-liter boxer engine producing 205 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque when paired with a six-speed manual (it makes 200 hp and 151 lb-ft if you opt for the automatic transmission). The BRZ prides itself for its handling, courtesy of the engine’s low center of gravity and of the limited-slip differential.
For even more fun you can select a performance package that adds Brembo brakes at the front and rear as well as Sachs shock absorbers and unique 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels. It costs just $1,195, which we’d say is well worth the price for driving aficionados.
