The 2018 Subaru BRZ will be priced from $26,455 including destination when it arrives early next year.

The sports coupe received significant upgrades to styling and performance for 2017, so this year the Japanese automaker focused on comfort and convenience changes. All Subaru BRZ models now include Welcome Lighting, which provides better nighttime visibility when approaching or exiting the vehicle, automatic headlight activation when wipers are turned on, and one-touch lane changer turn signal. In addition, both manual and automatic models benefit from a high-grade leather shift handle as standard.

Buyers can also opt for the $1,195 Performance Package that adds additional features to the Limited trim with manual transmission. The package includes upgraded Brembo four-piston calipers and rotors up front and dual-piston calipers and rotors on the rear, SACHS Performance shock absorbers, and unique 17×7.5-inch black aluminum alloy wheels.

The 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited trim will start at $29,305 with a manual transmission, while the six-speed automatic will cost $1,100 additional. The Limited model adds LED fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, and Keyless Access with Push-Button Start. The front seats on the Limited trim are upholstered with Alcantara inserts and leather bolsters, and the standard dual-mode heated front seats feature the BRZ logo embroidered in red on the seatbacks. A full security system on the Limited is an upgrade from the standard engine immobilizer found on the Premium model.

Exclusive to the Limited is a 4.2-inch LCD multi-function display positioned next to the tachometer, which shows vehicle performance data including lateral Gs, accelerator pedal position, braking force, steering angle, oil and coolant temperature, and battery voltage as well as an integrated stop watch for recording lap times.
