2019 Subaru BRZ Changes

Overview:
You can now order a 2019 Subaru BRZ from Planet Subaru

The laws of economics dictate that low-volume models get updated less frequently than the top sellers (e.g. Forester and Outback).  Those volume products are usually all-new every five years, with a significant "refresh" in the fourth year. Re-engineering a vehicle can cost many millions of dollars, so the vehicles that Subaru sells in boutique quantities receive less frequent updates...Subaru annually sells over 500,000 vehicles in the United States and only a few thousand of them are BRZs. 

So Subaru announced no changes to the 2019 BRZ other than a small price increase and the introduction of a special edition model. Subaru has not announced when we will see an all-new BRZ, but it's not this year and probably won't be the next year either. 


Don't hold your breath waiting for a convertible option, or a hybrid powerplant, or four-doors.  Planet Subaru "built" a composting BRZ but there is only one of those!  (Actually, there isn't even one).  Subaru got us excited with a BRZ STi concept powered by a turbocharged 2.0 liter engine, but alas, it was just a concept.  Read more about that car here

You can count on a special edition, offered in exclusive quantities (usually less than 1,000 units), to keep excitement high.  Here's a look down memory lane.  (Click on the hyperlinks for more info):

Priced at $30,140, the 2019 BRZ Series.Gray is based on the 2019 Limited model equipped with 6-speed manual transmission and Performance Package. The BRZ Series.Gray comes in Cool Gray Khaki with 17-inch black-finish alloy wheels, foldable exterior power mirrors with Crystal Black Silica finish and black BRZ and SUBARU badging.

The cabin of the special edition BRZ features an exclusive combination meter visor and upper interior door trim in Grand Luxe® with red stitching, and the day/night mirror uses a frameless design. A total of 250 BRZ Series.Gray will be produced for the 2019 model year.





Take a deep dive into the 2019 BRZ, including pricing:


New for the Limited trim is the updated 7.0-inch Multimedia Navigation system which now includes over-the-air updates through Wi-Fi. Additional new features for the system include "Tune Mix" which mixes songs from music channels stored as presets and "Sports Flash" which provides information and updates on pre-selected sports teams.

The Subaru BRZ, renowned for its ultra-low center of gravity and precision handling, is powered by a 205 hp, 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER engine, six-speed close-ratio manual transmission and TORSEN® limited-slip differential (optional automatic transmission model has 200 hp). The BRZ is designed with 2+2 seating and fold-down rear seatback to give the coupe everyday practicality and comfort.

BRZ Premium
Subaru is known for its legendary value, and the 2019 BRZ is no exception beginning at $25,795. The Premium trim's long list of standard features includes LED headlights, rear vision camera, power door locks, power side mirrors, power windows with auto-up/auto-down feature, remote keyless entry and engine immobilizer. Standard Welcome Lighting provides better nighttime visibility when approaching or exiting the vehicle. All trim levels now come standard with dual USB ports in the dash.

Inside, black upholstery with contrasting red stitching is adorned throughout the cabin including leather-trimmed door panels, center dash, shifter boot and parking brake lever. The leather-wrapped steering wheel integrates control switches for audio, cruise control and Bluetooth®. In all BRZ trim levels, Incline Start Assist holds the vehicle momentarily in position while the driver accelerates, to prevent roll back on an incline.

BRZ Limited
With a price starting at $28,645, the 2019 Limited adds LED fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, and Keyless Access with Push-Button Start. Front seats on the Limited trim are upholstered with Alcantara® inserts and leather bolsters, and standard dual-mode heated front seats feature the BRZ logo embroidered in red on the seatbacks. A full security system augments the standard engine immobilizer. Other amenities standard on the Limited include front door courtesy lights and an illuminating vanity mirror for both driver and front passenger sun visors.

Also standard on the Limited is a 4.2-inch color combination meter positioned next to the tachometer featuring vehicle performance data including lateral-g, accelerator pedal position, braking force, steering angle, oil and coolant temperatures and battery voltage. An integrated stopwatch function can be used for recording track lap times.

Performance Package
Subaru offers a Performance Package for drivers who demand even more from a sports car. The Performance Package is available for the Limited trim with manual transmission. The brake system is upgraded to Brembo® four-piston calipers and rotors on the front and dual- piston calipers and rotors on the rear. SACHS® Performance shock absorbers are added to all four corners for improved ride and corning stability. Also included in the package are unique 17-inch x 7.5-inch black aluminum alloy wheels. The BRZ Performance Package is well-priced at just $1,195.

SUBARU STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology
SUBARU STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology provides hands-free connectivity and entertainment through the vehicle's multimedia or navigation system. Both STARLINK Multimedia systems for BRZ offer a high-resolution touchscreen; Bluetooth® hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming; AM/FM stereo; SiriusXM All Access Radio (4-month free subscription) and HD Radio® as standard. The 2019 BRZ Premium is equipped with the 6.2-inch Multimedia system that includes 6.2-inch high resolution touchscreen, single-disc in-dash CD player and eight speakers. The multimedia system also offers smartphone integration with Pandora®, Aha®, iHeart® Radio and Stitcher™.

Standard for the BRZ Limited is the STARLINK 7.0-inch Multimedia Navigation system with 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen; smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay® and Android® Auto and STARLINK cloud applications; SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link (subscriptions required); Near Field Communication; voice activated controls for phone and text; and voiced activated navigation.
