Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Subaru BRZ Premium

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Subaru BRZ Premium Five-Point Inspection

A true automotive enthusiast will scoff and point their nose to the sky when shown a sports-coupe outfitted with an automatic transmission. We managed to hold off on any pre-conceived thoughts of automotive snobbery when testing out the latest sports car from Subaru, the BRZ.

Tested in Premium trim, it starts at $25,495, and with the optional automatic transmission adds $1,100 more to the total cost of the car.

    Disagree on the trim.  The Premium makes more sense to me.  The leather interior is not that nice, the heated seats add weight, the spoiler doesn’t create any actual downforce.  The stock controls are simple and work nicely, and who needs dual climate control in a car in which you can reach both doors without stretching?   Plus, you can take the extra $2,000 the Limited trim costs and buy a good cold air intake (upping horsepower by 10+ and getting better engine sound) and a full set of wheels and snow tires for winter.
