it Seems that was yesterday when Subaru showed us for the first time, its model is coupe sports. But no, it was 2012 and it has been five years since the model japanese made its debut. A half-decade on the market passes bill to any model, and the Subaru BRZ is not an exception. For rejuvenecerlo and keep it in the day, the japanese brand rolls out this appropriate restyling of half-cycle of life.
In the new Subaru BRZ 2017 we will see that continues to be virtually identical to the Toyota GT86, also recently updated, with which it shares virtually everything. Among other things, the renewal of the coupe 2+2 brings with it minor changes in its outward appearance, greater allocation of equipment with improvements in their finishes, a box of tools taken advantage of and some improvements in the mechanical response.
Aesthetically we see that the line of main design of this model continues unchanged, although it now incorporates new bumpers, lighting front and rear Full LED (antinieblas front included), new design alloy wheels 17”, new spoiler posteior in aluminium and finished in black color, in addition to a redesigned side gills. The modification of the front bumper seeks not only an aesthetic change, but one that has been studied to improve the engine cooling.
In the cabin we will also have some improvements compared to the predecessor model, starting with the steering wheel, which is now thicker, smaller diameter, and is lined in leather of best quality. The box of instruments has, on its right side, with a new screen LCD of 4.2 inches that will show a multitude of information interesting for the potential customers of this car, as you can be G-forces, stopwatch, diagram with the delivery of power and torque in function of the speed, temperatures of water and oil, voltage, in addition to the information common browser on board.
– trimmed interior have taken an important leap of quality including leather seats and Alcantara, new door panels, stereo equipment improved, and some controls redesigned. To highlight the screen of the dashboard with a 6.2-inch that brings greater connectivity and are better built, being at a high altitude, which will always divert less view of the road.
Under the hood we find the boxer engine of 2 liters that was used until now, although conveniently adjusted. The power of 200 HP is maintained, but the performance has been improved in the middle area, where before it was too lazy. It seems that by not raising the power hardly changes anything, but the case is that the engine block has been strengthened and includes new valves, pistons, crankshaft, camshaft, and fuel pump. The fuel consumption has dropped to one tenth, standing at 6,3 l/100 km
The press release tells us that the Subaru BRZ also brings improvements in its suspension, which will now offer a greater compromise between sportiness and comfort after reset springs and dampers, increasing the stability of the japanese sports. It seems that they have also worked on the ride comfort of the vehicle, reducing noise levels and vibrations that are transmitted to the passenger compartment. Even the exhaust line has had some adjustments.
improvements equipment are the introduction of a Track mode that completely disables the stability control and the traction control, the incorporation of the help the start slope and some improvements in the functioning of the six airbags, something that is always appreciated.
