Camden, N.J.  -  Subaru of America, Inc. introduced the updated 2020 BRZ which arrives at Subaru retailers this fall.

The Subaru BRZ, renowned for its ultra-low center of gravity and precision handling, is powered by a 205 hp, 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER engine, six-speed close-ratio manual transmission and TORSEN® limited-slip differential (optional automatic transmission model has 200 hp). The BRZ is designed with 2+2 seating and fold-down rear seatback to give the coupe everyday practicality and comfort. The 2020 Subaru BRZ is offered in two trim levels, Limited and tS.

The list of standard features includes Keyless Access with Push-Button Start, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED headlights (low and high beam), rear vision camera, dual USB ports and power door locks, side mirrors and windows. The Limited is also equipped with LED fog lights.

The 2020 BRZ comes equipped with the SUBARU STARLINK™ 7-inch Multimedia Navigation system that includes a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen with intuitive, high quality maps powered by TomTom®. The system also offers voice activated controls and navigation, smartphone integration with Android™ Auto and Apple CarPlay™, Bluetooth® hands-free phone connectivity with audio streaming and over-the-air updates through Wi-Fi. Also included in the list of features is SiriusXM® All-Access Radio, Traffic and Travel Link (subscriptions required).

Inside, black upholstery with contrasting red stitching is adorned throughout the cabin. Front seats on the Limited trim are upholstered with Alcantara® inserts and leather bolsters, and standard dual-mode heated front seats feature the BRZ logo embroidered in red on the seatbacks. The leather-wrapped steering wheel integrates control switches for audio, cruise control and Bluetooth.

The 2020 BRZ Limited offers an optional automatic transmission with 6-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters.

A Performance Package is available for the Limited trim with manual transmission. The brake system is upgraded to Brembo® four-piston calipers and rotors on the front and dual-piston calipers and rotors on the rear. SACHS® Performance shock absorbers are added to all four corners for improved ride and cornering stability. Also included in the package are unique 17 x 7.5-inch aluminum alloy wheels in dark gray finish.
