STI-enhanced 2015 Subaru BRZ Sport-Tech Aozora Edition coming to Canada
The Canadians are getting a new STI-enhanced 2015 Subaru BRZ special edition model that will further set it apart on the road.

The Aozora Edition will be available from $31,395 (Canadian) and offers all of the features of the Sport-Tech, with additional STI components, enhancing the look and feel of the vehicle.
Not a full BRZ STI yet
The new BRZ Sport-Tech Aozora Edition is only offered with a six-speed manual transmission for sports enthusiasts. The new special BRZ Sport-Tech Aozora Edition still comes with the 200 horsepower naturally aspirated boxer engine, so no STI turbo model yet. But it does get some STI enhancements for the new sports car. What sets this BRZ apart?
The Subaru BRZ Sport-Tech Package offers additional comfort and amenities that will set it apart from the standard 2015 BRZ. Outside, the new BRZ Sport-Tech Package is distinguished in front with fog lights and in the rear by a body-color trunk spoiler. It features STI front, side and rear lip under-spoiler kit and it comes with special 17-inch black STI alloy wheels and red brake calipers. It is available in Crystal White Pearl or World Rally Blue. Underneath the special edition sports car gets a body undercover, improving the drag coefficient to further the driving dynamics of the vehicle at high speeds and on the track.
Special STI treatments inside
Inside, Sport-Tech Aozora Edition comes with seats that are upholstered with Alcantara inserts and leather bolsters. The special model substitutes a dual-zone automatic climate control for the entry level BRZ's manual HVAC system. It also comes with heated front seats as well as keyless access and start with illuminated engine start/stop button. Also, the dual visor vanity mirrors are illuminated, while front door courtesy lights illuminate when the doors are opened.
The 2015 BRZ Sport-Tech Aozora Edition is only available with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Inside, a red STI engine-start button illuminates to greet the driver and a frameless rear view mirror is added. Exclusive black and blue Alcantara with blue leather seats match the accenting interior blue stitching on the steering wheel, arm rest, inner door trim, centre console side panel knee pad, shift boot and parking brake lever.
It’s not the full-blown BRZ STI with a turbo engine that Canadian performance enthusiasts have been looking for, but the new 2015 Subaru BRZ special edition model will further set it apart on the road and adds improved driving dynamics. The new 2015 Subaru BRZ Sport-Tech Aozora Edition is now available in Canada from $31,395.
