MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) today announced pricing for its long-awaited 2013 Subaru BRZ rear-wheel-drive sports coupe. The well-equipped entry model with six-speed manual transmission starts at $27,295, and $28,495 for the six-speed automatic version, as Subaru's tradition of outstanding value is evident in the entry model's long list of standard amenities. Key among these are standard HID headlights as well as a comprehensive assortment of user-friendly technologies anchored by a touchscreen navigation system that includes Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity, Bluetooth audio streaming and smartphone integration. The Subaru BRZ Sport-tech Package offers additional comfort and amenities such as fog lights, a body-colour trunk spoiler and dual-zone automatic climate control.

The Subaru BRZ arrives in Subaru dealerships this June. The 2.0-litre naturally aspirated BRZ delivers pinpoint handling precision and an unmatched driving experience for sports car enthusiasts of all skill levels.
Utilizing Subaru's naturally aspirated 200-hp horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER engine layout, Subaru developed the BRZ with three fundamentals of sports car design: low vehicle weight, an ultra-low centre of gravity and precision steering.
The Subaru BRZ is manufactured at Subaru's Gunma, Japan, assembly plant. Adding the stylish rear-wheel-drive BRZ two-door sports coupe to Subaru's portfolio of all-wheel-drive sedans, crossovers and SUVs showcases the brand's penchant for engineering vehicles that deliver pure driving pleasure. This offering is intended to appeal to a new group of buyers and attract even more Canadians to the Subaru brand.
