Enthusiasts 2015 Subaru BRZ SE is even better value in the UK now

Subaru UK expands its range of BRZ sports cars with the re-introduction of the SE model. Why the new lower price?

Subaru UK has made the 2015 Subaru BRZ two-door coupe even more affordable for buyers in the UK. BRZ has been a popular sports car in the UK and now Subaru re-introduces the base SE model at a new low price of 22,495 (British Pounds) OTR. With the addition of the entry-level SE BRZ, Subaru now offers four models in the lineup for UK customers.

Four BRZ models

Subaru UK will have four 2015 BRZ models for driving enthusiasts to choose from. The SE manual starts at 22,495, SE auto 23,995, SE Lux manual 23,995, and SE Lux auto 25,495 all over the road pricing. The new 2015 BRZ pricing follows on the heels of the price reductions in the UK with the launch of the new 2015 WRX STI at 4000 less than the old model. Subaru is able to do this because they can pass along the benefits of the more favorable exchange rates.

BRZ aimed at driving enthusiasts

The 2015 Subaru BRZ keeps the same drivetrain since its introduction in 2012, but it’s a good combination of power and sporty driving dynamics. BRZ SE is still powered by the 200 hp 2.0-liter horizontally-opposed Boxer engine and features one of the lowest centers of gravity of any production car in the world at just 18.1 inches. This is because of Subaru’s Boxer engine design with its inherently low height and its mass concentrated low in the chassis. Subaru’s BRZ takes maximum advantage of this.

Rear-drive and lightweight

The 2015 Subaru BRZ features a rear-drive configuration which is ideal for a sports car. BRZ is also lightweight and weighs in at just 2762 lbs. Subaru uses a high-tensile steel throughout the cars body and chassis in order to keep it light. They also use an aluminum hood to reduce weight. This is one of the main factors that makes the 2015 BRZ agile.

Standard features on BRZ SE

The 2015 Subaru BRZ SE comes with a multitude of standard features for driving enthusiasts. It comes with a six-speed standard gearbox or automatic, keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone climate control, sports seats, VSC, Torsen limited slip differential and front, side, curtain and knee airbags all standard. Satellite navigation remains a dealer option.

UK Customers can step up to the BRZ SE Lux and upgrade to Alcantara and leather trimmed heated seats. All automatic transmission models feature steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. BRZ has been a successful launch in the UK and is the result of the collaborative agreement between FHI Ltd and Toyota Motor Corporation. BRZ and its sister Toyota GT-86 are manufactured at Subaru’s Gunma plant in Ota-city, Japan.

Subaru UK is offering the reintroduced 2015 BRZ SE (22,495) now in UK Subaru showrooms. The 2015 Subaru BRZ remains one the most affordable sports cars in the world. Stay tuned to Torque News for the 2015 Subaru BRZ Series.Blue review coming soon.
