Subaru UK has announced a significant £2,500 price reduction for the 2014 BRZ and the sports car now starts at just £23,995 (on-the-road) for the SE Lux model with manual transmission and £25,495 for automatic models.

2014 Subaru BRZ is powered by a 2.0 litre horizontally-opposed Boxer petrol engine (200HP and 205Nm) and boasts a low centre of gravity and rear-wheel drive for engaging driving thrills. The BRZ has been reduced in price to ensure clear differentiation from the all-new All-Wheel Drive WRX STI saloon, Subaru's flagship performance model.

The WRX STI arrives in showrooms during May, priced from £28,995 (OTR) – £4,000 less than the previous model.

The standard extras of BRZ SE Lux include Alcantara and leather trimmed seats and Torsen rear-axle differential which allows the keen driver to better exploit the sports car's fine handling characteristics. Auto models feature steering wheel-mounted gear shift paddles.

"A more favourable exchange rate between the pound and yen has allowed us to reduce the price of a number of models in recent years, and our performance range – the BRZ and WRX STI – are the latest to benefit. Together, they represent outstanding value for enthusiast drivers seeking a high level of performance, driver interaction and entertainment on the road.", explained Paul Tunnicliffe, Managing Director of Subaru UK.
