2017 BRZ Sports Pack Special Edition

The BRZ gets another Sports Pack makeover, but for a lower price increase.

SUBARU has announced a new BRZ Sports Pack Special Edition, which brings a largely aesthetic refresh for a smaller price, but leaves power output and performance untouched.

Unlike the previous BRZ Sports Pack that was offered in 2013 for close to $8000, the 2017 version has arrived with a more attractive price tag that adds $2300 to the standard BRZ 2.0 Premium.

All versions of the BRZ continue to offer the same 2.0-litre boxer petrol engine which produces 152kW/212Nm and 147kW/205Nm when mated to the six-speed manual gearbox and automatic transmission respectively.

However, the BRZ Sports Pack special edition receives a visual upgrade.

Listed on Subaru’s website, the new 2017 BRZ Special Edition features updated Brembo brakes and Sachs suspension for more track-carving capability, while 17-inch wheels, rear wing, mirrors, shark fin and rear badges are finished in black for a more menacing look.

The additional cost of the Sports Pack brings the BRZ to $36,694 plus on-roads for the six-speed manual and $38,694 plus on-roads for the automatic.

Subaru is offering 150 of the specials, with customers invited to choose from one of four colours: Pure Red, Dark Grey metallic, Crystal White and WR Blue pearl.

The updated 2017 Subaru BRZ arrived in Australia late in 2016, offering buyers new tech, improved ride, a sharper price and a power and torque increase for the manual.

The upgrade also offered chassis tweaks for better rigidity, as well as a revised suspension for better comfort and stability. Track Mode was added to the Vehicle Dynamics Control, as well as hill start. It was also given a minor facelift with a new bumper design, LED lights and alloy wheels.

Inside, a 6.2-inch touchscreen, 4.2-inch colour LCD dash display, redesigned steering wheel and seat-coverings made up a number of other changes.
