Subaru BRZ is one of the car models with excellent sales, even though at start it was looked down upon due to no announced plans for a turbocharged version. In general, that means we’re expecting a 2015 Subaru BRZ Turbo model soon. However, recently Subaru made it clear that a turbocharger will be added to the FA-20 engine in 2015, which is used by the BRZ model made by this company.
2015 Subaru BRZ Turbo – Exterior
This lightweight, sleek and powerful car, packed with strength will certainly make people turn around on the street, to take another glimpse of it. In essence, we can expect a set of 18-inch alloy wheels, a full body kit and a pronounced wing at the rear side, to help with stability of the rear end. Also, Subaru will surely make subtle changes in the wing in order to modify the downforce, as needed. Judging by some spy shots, Subaru will retain the aggressive design of the headlamps as well as pronounced grille in the front.
Full leather interior, contrasting stitching and embroidery are to be expected when it comes to the newest 2015 Subaru BRZ Turbo. Along with this stylish setting, you can expect many amenities and gadgets which models made by Subaru already have – Bluetooth, iPod control, voice-activated GPS, 8-speaker HD Radio stereo system, keyless entry as well as some innovations like yaw control, obligatory boost gauge and perhaps even turbo timer.
Although the most anticipated news are the modifications made to the FA-20 drivetrain which Subaru BRZ Turbo would use, we still don’t have official and confirmed information regarding this. Still, we will follow some guidelines to bring some estimates. The turbocharged FA-20 drivetrain is expected to have more than 325 horsepowers, and more than 350 lb-ft. of torque, and we can safely say that the new engine will be paired with 6-speed manual transmission and that it will have both Rear-wheel-drive and All-wheel-drive on offer as options. Road tests have shown that rear-wheel-drive 2012 BRZ went 0-60 in 6.4 seconds, while the estimate for the new 2015 Subaru BRZ Turbo model is 4.6 seconds.
Price and Release Date
Judging by some information from the company itself and pricing templates of previous Subaru models in this range, we estimate that since the previous BRZ model is priced at around $25,495 the newest 2015 Subaru BRZ Turbo will cost around $34,000. When it comes to the release date of this model, we can only assume it will be on one of the major car shows in 2015.
