2023 Subaru BRZ Gets A $600 Price Hike, Now Starts At $28,595

Inflation is soaring so it comes as little surprise the 2023 Subaru BRZ is getting a little more expensive.

When the sports car arrives at U.S. dealerships this summer, pricing will begin at $28,595 before a $1,020 destination fee. Compared to last year’s model, the sticker price has climbed $600 while the destination fee has also increased $60.

Despite the price hike, it appears nothing else has changed. That’s unfortunate, but the entry-level BRZ Premium comes equipped with LED headlights and 17-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in summer performance tires. Speaking of performance, the car comes standard with a Torsen limited-slip rear differential.

Moving into the cabin, drivers will find a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. They’re joined by alloy pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and cloth sport seats with red contrast stitching. Buyers will also find cruise control, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, and a push button ignition.

The BRZ Limited also climbs $600 to start at $31,095. It features steering responsive headlights as well as larger 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer performance tires. The range-topping variant also has additional safety equipment including rear cross traffic alert and a blind spot monitor with lane change assist.

The Limited’s interior is more luxurious as there are heated ultrasuede front seats with leather bolsters and red accents. Elsewhere, there are illuminated vanity mirrors and Brin Naub accents on the door panels. Last but not least, there’s an upgraded audio system with an amplifier and two additional speakers.

Regardless of which trim is selected, power is provided by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 228 hp (170 kW / 231 PS) and 184 lb-ft (249 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to a six-speed manual transmission, but a six-speed automatic is also available for an additional $1,500 on the Premium and $1,700 on the Limited. That means the automatic is now $100 cheaper on both trims.

Speaking of the automatic gearbox, it comes paired with additional driver assistance systems including adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure and sway warning, and lead vehicle start alert.
