Like its Toyota counterpart, the Subaru BRZ has also received a facelift. Unlike Toyota holding an event for the updated 86, Motor Image Philippines quietly revealed the facelifted BRZ at the recently concluded Manila International Auto Show.
The most noticeable differences from the previous and current BRZ are found on the exterior. The front fascia has been updated and has a revised front bumper with more sleek side vents and redesigned fog lights. The headlights now use projector LEDs and features a new LED strip sandwiched in between Subaru's iconic C-style daytime running lights.
Moving to the side, not much has changed except for the side vents which now use a twin strip design as compared to the single strip on the pre-facelift model. As for the rear, the taillights are once again the same ones found on the Toyota 86, which are new LED units. To finish off the exterior makeover, the BRZ now sits on new 17-inch wheels.
Inside, the cabin has been moslty carried over from the previous gen with the exception of new material for the seats and a revised gauge cluster. The meter gauge has been updated as the right most part of the cluster now features a digital display which show different parameters.
Powering the BRZ is still the same 2.0-liter DOHC FA20 Boxer Engine which produces 200 PS and 205 Nm of torque. It will only be available with an automatic transmission. A 6-speed manual option is available via indent order.
Price of the Subaru BRZ 2.0 A/T is at Php 1,928,000.
