The new performance-coupe model 2021 Subaru BRZ is arriving. This car is recently spied testing and it hosts notable exterior changes. According to the latest reports, the Subaru BRZ will be powered by a 2.4-liter Boxer-4 engine that will, for sure, smoke its competition.
From what we heard, the new vehicle will be introduced to the public later this year, while sales might starts sometime in the first quarter of the next year. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19, the launch is likely to be moved to the second quarter of 2021. Interestingly, from the manufacturer statement, prices for the 2021 BRZ will rise significantly because of the new engine upgrade.
2021 Subaru BRZ Features Notable Exterior Changes
The next-gen 2021 Subaru BRZ will be treated with notable exterior changes. From the spy photos, we can see the refreshed body that looks more aggressive. Generally, in front of this coupe, the manufacturer used a more significant, wider bumper, and air intakes. The grille has a new pattern and we like refreshed LED headlights. Moving to the side profile, the same aero kits with bigger sporty alloy wheels are present.
Basically, body lines are similar to what we saw on the concept model. At the back, it provides the same aggressiveness as on the front. Subaru updated LED taillights and it used a much bigger spoiler. Also, BRZ uses two chrome exhaust systems, giving a more sporty stance.
Interior Includes Leather Upholstery
