Subaru BRZ

The Subaru BRZ is entering its second model year with a slight price bump, but before BRZ enthusiasts could even think about becoming upset, Subaru announced that the bump is for a measly sum of $100.

The BRZ was designed in early development with the Scion FR-S to be a fun and accessible sports car and with the second generation model, Subaru has managed to maintain that simple image. The budding star will hopefully continue to be the amazing sports car that it has proved to be for the past year.

The 2014 Subaru BRZ will be available in two different styles: a top-of-the-line LImited Trim, with either a six-speed automatic transmission or the same manual six-speed transmission that is available in the Premium trim. Both versions will be powered by the same 2.0 liter, four cylinder boxer engine as the first generation vehicle, which is capable of 200 horsepower.

There is still speculation, and has been since before the debut of the BRZ, as to whether or not Subaru and Scion would add another, more powerful variant. Scion has released information that they are in fact testing an assortment of options, including adding a turbocharger, replacing the 2.0 engine with a larger 2.5-liter version, or using a hybrid system that pulls extra power from a battery pack and electric motor. Spoiler Alert: it seems as if Subaru will also make a more powerful STI version, which is set to debut next year.

The Limited Trim will provide fog-lights and a body-colored trunk spoiler on the outside. The interior will will have a number of upgrades, including dual-zone automatic climate control instead of manual air conditioning controls. In addition, the front seats will have dual-mode heating function, and are dressed with Alcantara inserts and leather bolsters, and the front door courtesy lights illuminate when the doors are open.
