Subaru of America, Inc announced the 2017 BRZ Series.Yellow This special lineup, limited to 500 vehicles comes in distinctive exterior finish and is by far brand's most exciting BRZ up to date.
This is a vehicle that is immediately recognizable by its yellow color, special black alloy wheels, black BRZ and SUBARU badging and black exterior mirrors. And based on the 2017 Limited model with Performance Pack, the Series.Yellow also delivers some enhanced and refined driving experience. Thanks to the upgraded Brembo four-piston calipers and rotors on the front and dual-piston calipers and rotors to the rear the vehicle offers noticeable boost in the stopping power, fade resistance and pedals feel. Furthermore, the SACHS Performance shock absorbers contribute to smoother handling and improved stability.
BRZ Series.Yellow is geared with a 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER power unit, mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Some of the improvements for 2017 include friction reduction, new aluminum intake manifold and improved exhaust manifold. These improvements boost the overall engine output to 205hp (152kW) and 156 lb-ft of torque. The engineering team also managed to improve acceleration by lowering the final drive ratio from 4.1 to 4.3:1. Sweet.
Some of the many visual improvements and changes include new front bumper cover, fresh headlights in the style of "kono-ji" with Daytime Running Lights while the turn signals and position lights have been integrated into the redesigned headlight for cleaner design and refined look.
Furthermore, all 2017 BRZ models receive a pedestal-style aluminum rear spoiler that matches the body color. This new design is not only beautiful and distinctive, but also contributes to vehicle's downforce. Sweet.
Standard for the lineup is the 4.2-inch LCD multifunction display, placed on the right of the tachometer. It displays all kinds of information about the vehicle, including lateral Gs, accelerator pedal position, braking force, steering angle, oil and water temperature, battery voltage and more.
