2017 Subaru BRZ Specs

When the Subaru BRZ debuted in 2012, it was heralded as a return to the traditional Japanese sport coupe formula – a compact, lightweight, rear-wheel-drive runabout that hearkened back to greats like the original Toyota Celica, Mazda’s RX-3, and the Nissan 240SX. Japan is covered in mountains, and that’s where its enthusiasts honed their hooning. Cars that emphasize handling, not horsepower, make the most sense there.

Subaru has refreshed the BRZ, sister vehicle to Toyota’s GT86 (formerly Scion FR-S). Enthusiasts of the model will however be surprised to learn that not much has changed in terms of power output. The automaker has only added 5 hp and 5 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the outgoing model, this is not much significant. This means there would be no sub-four seconds acceleration from 0-60 mph as many enthusiasts anticipated. The automaker has also added some other new changes to keep the model fresh before the next-gen is released. Overall, the model retains its low center of gravity, light curb weight and superb handling.

2017 Subaru BRZ Changes

Walking around the 2017 BRZ under the cloudy skies at Fuji, it’s easy to see that Subaru’s exterior designers opted for the latter strategy. It barely even looks like a refresh at first glance, but a keener eye will notice a few subtle tweaks. The car’s stance is a touch lower and wider, and the front bumper pieces now extend into the foglight housings. LED headlights and taillights are now standard, the more aggressive-looking 17-inch wheels are new, and the functional rear spoiler (once optional for Limited models) is now standard. Nobody will have any trouble identifying the latest BRZ, but like a smart new haircut and a shave, the car looks cleaner and fresher without resorting to a ridiculous mohawk or man-bun.

2017 Subaru BRZ Specs

The cabin is not that much different from that of the outgoing model.  Generally, the cabin has a black theme with a red contrast stitching. There are silver inserts on the doors panels, on the sides of the center stack and around the shifter boot.

On the 2017 BRZ, the front end wears most of the visible upgrades. A new front bumper cap flanks new LED fog lights with body-color winglets, giving the car a bit more connection with the ground. The headlights are now full-LED units, a first for Subaru, and integrate the car’s daytime running lights. Other visual stamps include a standard rear spoiler, full-LED taillights, and new wheel patterns.

However, there are a couple of new changes. Upfront, the Premium and Limited trim features a new leather insert with a red contrast stitching in place of the grey-colored plastic insert on outgoing models. The automaker has hooked up Premium trim models with a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a contrasting red stitching. The steering wheel also features new Bluetooth and audio controls.

For an even more planted feel, there’s the new Performance Package. While it doesn’t add any more “go” to the Limited, it does provide Brembo four-pot calipers and 12.8-inch rotors up front, and twin-piston counterparts and 12.4-inch discs out back (compared to the standard 11.6- and 11.4-inch rotors) to improve braking. A set of exclusive 17 x 7.5-inch wheels make room for the larger stoppers, finished in black and recalling the RS-Watanabe racing rims popular with the touring cars that once roamed Fuji Speedway.

The Limited trim features simulated leather with red contrast stitching on the doors and Alcantara seat inserts. The instrument cluster has also been revised. It features a 4.2-inch screen which displays important information about the vehicle to the driver. The Premium and Limited trims get a 6.2-inch infotainment system. The system features Smartphone integration for both Pandora and Aha.

However, the headlights have been revised for a different look which has been achieved by use of a new LED light strip. The front fascia also features wider corner vents while the fascia’s front lip curves upwards to give the vents a 3D look. The Premium and Limited trim feature LED fog lights which replace halogen units.

The only change on the flanks compared to the outgoing models is the new 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels.  At the rear, the upper trims feature a body colored rear spoiler and LED taillights. Everything else is identical to the outgoing models. You can however add aftermarket body kits to make your BRZ look more aggressive.

The steering wheel gets an upgrade as well, with the old plain-Jane design giving way to one with grippier and suppler cross-stitched leather. That may not seem like a big difference, but after white-knuckling it around a fast circuit, your hands will thank you. A big change from the 2016 is that there are actual controls on the spokes basic stereo functions on one side, and a way to flip through vehicle information on the other. The latter controls a 4.2-inch TFT screen that displays everything from outside temperature to power and torque curves, replacing the rather blank-looking analog fuel and engine temp gauges of old.

Of course, we’d point you to the BRZ’s short-throw 6-speed manual. It’s precise and engages its gears with the snicky touch of a fencer’s epee. Out in the real world, the 6-speed automatic is probably the right choice, and given its steering-wheel paddle shifters, sport mode, and downshift rev matching, it’s not a bad one. But in a nice show of priorities, Subaru says only a quarter of these cars go home with someone with an automatic.

Especially with the new Performance Pack, which adds Sachs ZF shocks, 0.5-inch wider wheels, and bigger brake rotors with Brembo four-piston front calipers, the BRZ is still king when it comes to cheap and joyous kicks around a road course. Although the package might not be worth the extra cash on the road, those who plan on visiting the track would do well to tick this box. The larger brake rotors, now 12.8 inches wide up front and 12.4 inches wide at the rear, are the same size as used in the WRX STI. Let that sink in for a second.

Under the hood, Subaru has retained the same engine that powered the outgoing model. The unit is a 2.0 L, 4-cylinder mill. The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission system. Models with a manual system have received an additional 5 hp and 5 lb-ft of torque which means the engine now produces 205 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque.
