The world’s only existing Toyobaru is getting ready for the 2019 model year with several upgrades and a $200 increase in price for the base model.
Subaru announced on Thursday it will be selling the 2019 BRZ, as it calls its version of the Toyota GT 86, for $25,795. The rather minor increase in price is justified by the addition of an updated Starlink In-Vehicle Technology and over-the-air updates. But that price is only for the base version of the BRZ, the Premium.

The edition that will most likely catch the eye for the new model year is the BRZ Series.Gray, a considerably more expensive car, but unique in a number of ways.

The Series.Gray will be based on the Limited trim (the Limited will sell for $28,645) and will be manufactured in a small run of 250 units. It comes equipped with the same 6-speed manual transmission controlling the 205 hp 2.0-liter Boxer engine, but features changes in the way it looks, thanks to the use of the Performance Package.

That translates into Brembo four-piston calipers and rotors on the front and dual- piston calipers and rotors on the back, Sachs Performance shock absorbers, and 17-inc black aluminum alloy wheels.

The model is painted in Cool Gray Khaki with 17-inch black-finish alloy wheels, the foldable exterior power mirrors come in Crystal Black Silica finish and black BRZ and Subaru badges are featured on the body.

At the interior, the carmaker will offer upper interior door trim in Grand Luxe with red stitching, and frameless interior mirror.

Series.Gray will obviously use the updated Starlink that comprises a 7.0-inch Multimedia Navigation system, Bluetooth and smartphone integration with Pandora, Aha, iHeart Radio, and Stitcher, among other things.

In all, for the 2019 model year, Subaru will offer the BRZ in 3 variants. A rather good offering, considering the fact that in the U.S. the model sold a little over 4,000 units last year and barely passed half of that by August 2018.
