Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Subaru BRZ Premium

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Subaru BRZ Premium

5: Consider the fully loaded BRZ Limited

The BRZ’s looks, handling and performance are great, but to get the most out of it, it may be best to opt for the fully loaded Limited trim. An extra $2,000 will round out the car’s exterior with fog-lights and a slick spoiler, but the real value comes with the touched up interior.

For example, the seats get heaters, as well as Alacantara inserts with leather. The center cluster gets a gorgeous facelift with an automatic dual-zone climate control. Furthermore, the Limited gets cooler tech, like keyless entry and push-button start – and shouldn’t every sports car get a push button start?

While a unique purist’s sports car, these extra goodies help make it more modern and a more enjoyable package for when you’re not clipping an apex.

    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.
