Next gen Subaru BRZ expected to spark online interest
IT'S one of the most anticipated models of 2021, and now potential customers can register their interested in the second generation Subaru BRZ.
Subaru Australia has launched a new online portal at subaru.com.au - accessible from today (Monday, 3 May), where customers can put their hand up to be among the first in line for the new model.
"We’ve been staggered by the amount of interest in new BRZ," Subaru general manager Blair Read said.
"The level of dealer enquiry and calls to our own customer service centre indicates massive interest among sports car fans and we look forward to sharing more details closer to launch," he added.
"We only have around 50 of the current generation BRZ left, and it’s likely there will be a gap in supply until the new model launches. So, it’s timely to alert customers that the new model is coming, and to register their interest if they’re keen to be among the first in line when deliveries begin."
Specifications and pricing for Australia’s second generation BRZ are yet to be confirmed, but at last November’s global unveil, Subaru confirmed it will have engine capacity increased to 2.4 litres.
The new model will deliver 18 per cent more torque than the superseded manual model, and more than 20 per cent more torque than the outgoing automatic.
Models equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission gain a revised Sport mode, while automatic transmission models will feature, for the first time ever, Subaru's EyeSight driver assist technology.
The BRZ’s new body delivers approximately 60 per cent greater front lateral bending rigidity and approximately 50 per cent more torsional stiffness. The stiffer body contributes to improved steering response, more nimble handling and better stability.
The 2022 Subaru BRZ is expected to arrive during quarter four of this year.. More details, including pricing, will be announced closer to the launch of the 2022 Subaru BRZ.
