Toyota has developed the Toyota GT 86 to give us a MY2017 that, among other changes, introduced a small cosmetic change, a slight increase in power and a new set-up, but what about the Subaru BRZ? It seems that Subaru coupe also has its updating.
Last week’s reveal of the 2017 Toyota 86, formerly known as the Scion FR-S, stirred a fair amount of conversation. Yes, Scion as a brand is no longer and the rear-wheel-drive coupe will now be a Toyota. Despite a new front end design a few other updates, an output from the 2.0-liter Boxer four increased – by 5 hp, to 205 hp. Torque is also up to 156 lb-ft (from 151). In other words, many people still think the 86 is underpowered. So what about its twin, the Subaru BRZ?
Subaru BRZ Facelift
From the forum Ft86club.com, we get a series of images that reveal the introduction of a facelift, as expected, follow the steps defined by the Toyota GT 86.
We are in this way with a new bumper, new optics and new tires on the outside, sporting a fairly even to what is already known aspect. Inside also it would have a new carbon fiber finish for the center console and the surface of the windows and an extra touch of leather on the front of the dashboard.
T lso are some of the new controls, such as air conditioning and yes, your flyer will now multifunction (remember that currently had no buttons).
Of course we should also meet that extra light power he has shown the Toyota GT 86. An evolution of the block boxer 4 – cylinder 2 – liter displacement that leaves us with 205 horses (bearing in mind that the current version develops 200bhp ).
When did you see? Perhaps Subaru also present in the Hall of New York, anyway should not take too long to find out.
