Subaru BRZ tS Returns To Fly Under The Radar
Subaru of America announced pricing and the 2020 BRZ model change with the return of the BRZ tS limited edition model. Subaru will only build 300 BRZ tS (tuned by STI) with a price of $31,495 for U.S. performance customers. Torque News reported in July the special edition BRZ tS would make its return after the EPA put fuel mileage numbers up on its website.
The first BRZ tS launched in 2018 with a big wing, like the STI, but the 2020 BRZ tS gets a new low-profile rear spoiler so it can fly under the radar. The 2020 BRZ tS comes in one color, a new Ceramic White. Torque News reported in April, the 2020 Subaru WRX and WRX STI would also get a limited edition WRX Series.White and 2020 Subaru WRX STI Series.White in the same Ceramic White exterior color. Subaru has not officially announced these models.
2020 Subaru BRZ tS
The 2020 BRZ tS gets suspension upgrades from Subaru Tecnica International that includes STI-tuned front and rear SACHS dampers and coil springs as well as an STI flexible V-brace in the engine compartment. The brakes also get upgraded to Brembo four-piston calipers and rotors on the front and dual-piston calipers and rotors on the rear. The BRZ tS rides on 18-inch wheels in matte-bronze finish wrapped in 215/40R18 Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The 2.0-liter Boxer engine remains unchanged with 205 horsepower for all 2020 BRZ models.
The exterior gets special tS accents and badging as does the interior that will feature black leather and Alcantara upholstery with contrasting red stitching and accents, including on the steering wheel, door and dash panels, knee pads, shifter and emergency brake boots and visor over the gauge cluster. The front seats have red leather bolsters and the seatbacks are embroidered with the tS logo.
The 2020 Subaru BRZ is offered in two trim levels, Limited and tS, with a starting price of $28,845. The 2020 BRZ Limited with optional automatic transmission is priced at $29,945. Subaru still offers the Performance Package ($1,195) for the Limited trim with manual transmission. It features upgraded Brembo brakes with 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 and it rides on 17 x 7.5-inch aluminum alloy wheels in a dark gray finish.
