Showcased at the latest New York Auto show from this year we have seen the unveiling of the 2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo car. It showed us that the car can be made better than it actually is. As if the current model was not performing well, Subaru decided to upgrade it and bring some innovations and more power to the BRZ Turbo.
The new Subaru BRZ promises to be one of the most attractive ones on the market and is going to come with some incredible performance features and a completely new style. This is now a very good economical sport car and combines the look of a modern day coupe car and combines with a luxurious design that makes it look more aggressive than before and also act more superior than others as well.
Something completely new about the car is that it comes at a reduced weight. Making the car much lighter is something that enabled it to attain the given specs and performance ratings. If you want to find out more about the newest update that comes for the 2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo read the rest of the review.
2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo engine
The new BRZ Turbo car has incorporated an engine that is used inside the BRZ Super GT, They are calling it the GT300 EJ20 but it is basically a 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-4 boxer engine and it is able to generate 50 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. The engine that has been given to the racer car and also that has been an inclusion to a concept vehicle that Subaru has also produced will find its home in the BRZ Turbo. This option is a manageable one and fits particularly well for this race-ready addition of the vehicle.
The inside has been made into a traditional sport version car. The 2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo gets some traditional accents that are given inside a typical racer. Besides sports safety and comfort the most noticeable thing are the carbon accents that are given to the inside of the car. The seats also add Recaro sport leather/suede upholsteries and come with red stitching to combine for a much better racer look. The whole cabin in fact includes some red details and are a bright spot which complement the entire concept of the cabin.
The dash has been remodeled to fit the update also. It uses a touch screen display which enables you to control the majority of the features added inside and also glows up whenever you turn on the car. This is a stylish new feature and makes a bright addition to the instrument cluster. The entire dash part has a conventional look and design that is seen in most of the racer vehicles of today.
2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo Exterior
The best part of the 2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo redesign is that everything has been done to be much more aggressive than before. Everything looks newer and fits perfectly with the already present sport design. If we were to compare it with something we can best describe it as being somewhere between the GT racer and the STI Performance concept model as it uses design cues from both of the cars. The front end of the car, or actually the front fascia, has some angular features and a shape that enables better air flow of the car. The hexagonal shape of the grille is a welcomed new addition and something that perfectly fits with the BRZ Turbo now.
Behind the front fender there are a couple of air gills added while the back fender has a huge back side that also sports a mid-mounted, circular turbo exhaust. Finally we also get to the big angular wing looter placed behind the overhang. All of the new design cues will not worth anything if the car had not shed so much weight. The car has reduced its overall weight capacity by using lighter maters and the outer part of the car has more carbon fiber than before. This gives way to the present specs and better performance rates that the car has received.
2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo Price and release date
The great news about the release is that the 2018 Subaru BRZ Turbo is going to be available on the US market. We expect that the release date comes as near as March next year. But still not a lot of details are present here but next year is when the car is going to be certainly offered. Its price is also a welcomed one as this car adopts some affordable price stats. A base price of $34000 is good news for people who are interested in this version and fans of the Subaru.
