It doesn’t get an STI  badge. However Subaru says it rides on an “STI-tuned suspension,” and it wears badges within the traditional red-almost-pink shade that sign an STI product.

Subaru’s STI (Subaru Tecnica Worldwide) tuning badge is famous. However Subie engineers haven’t had a lot name to max out their artwork lately. There aren’t any STI fashions within the model’s present lineup.

In order that they should have been glad once they received the decision to do that.

Subaru hasn’t revealed pricing for the sharper version. It’s primarily based on the BRZ Restricted trim, which carries an MSRP of $31,095. The added efficiency components seemingly add a couple of thousand {dollars} to that sticker, however we’d be stunned to see it north of $40,000.

Concerning the BRZ

The BRZ is the adopted baby of the Subaru lineup. In-built partnership with Toyota, it’s nearly a twin to the Toyota GR86, making it the one present rear-wheel drive (RWD) Subaru. The traditional “2+2” format technically seats 4, but when the 2 within the again are out of Kindergarten, they received’t prefer it again there.

The usual BRZ makes use of a 2.4-liter flat 4-cylinder engine making 228 horsepower. Subaru hasn’t achieved something to make it track-day-ready within the tS. It additionally will get the identical close-ratio 6-speed transmission accessible within the primary model.

However that’s the place the similarities finish.

Enhanced Suspension, Brakes

The suspension is remade with “STI-tuned entrance and rear Hitachi dampers to maximise its light-weight, ultra-low middle of gravity and precision dealing with, leading to higher flexibility and higher management and stability.” Brembo brakes – 4-pistons up entrance and two within the rear – come painted gold. That permits you to spec the traditional Subaru blue-and-gold rally paint scheme in a automobile nobody with sense will ever rally.

It rides on 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4s “for superior grip and faster turn-in.”

It’s not all about track-day poise. The BRZ tS is the primary manual-transmission-equipped Subaru to hold the model’s full EyeSight suite of driver help applied sciences. That features adaptive cruise management. Subaru hasn’t defined the way it works with a stick. Some manufacturers’ manual-equipped adaptive cruise controls will immediate drivers for wanted shifts.

Gold Brake Calipers, Blue Stitches

You’ll have the ability to spot a tS from a distance. It will get giant useful entrance air intakes and bigger fender arches to accommodate the modified suspension. tS badging in that traditional shade seems on the decklid. A BRZ brand on the corners of the headlights wears it, too. Subaru will promote it in any shade you may order on the BRZ, however they’ll most likely grimace should you don’t do the traditional blue.

Inside, blue stitching stands out in opposition to black upholstery. It appears to be like like leather-based and suede, however Subaru hasn’t specified what it’s, so we’ll assume it’s the model’s StarTex leather-based substitute – an easy-clinic, long-wearing different. The steering wheel is wrapped in the actual stuff, although.

Based mostly on the BRZ Restricted trim, the tS model will get creature comforts like dual-zone automated local weather management, an upgraded audio system with a 2-channel amplifier, and steering-responsive headlights.

Subaru doesn’t point out constructing a restricted variety of tS fashions.
