For 2019, the BRZ Limited gets an updated Starlink infotainment system with over-the-air upgrade capability via Wi-Fi, "Tune Mix" that mixes songs from preset channels and "Sports Flash" that provides information on pre-selected sports teams. Also new this year is the BRZ Series.Gray edition, which features special Gray Khaki paint, black alloy wheels and unique interior trim. Production for the Series.Gray is limited to just 250 cars.

Unless you absolutely can't live without heated seats, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay or an automatic transmission, go with the base Premium trim over the Limited. It has everything you need to enjoy what the BRZ is all about, plus you can use some of the $2,000 savings to replace the underwhelming audio with a nice aftermarket system. If you can't drive a stick, however, you'll have to move up to the Limited, as the Premium doesn't offer an automatic transmission. Find a Subaru BRZ for sale

2019 Chevrolet Camaro -- Like the Mustang, the Camaro offers more power and a more masculine look than the BRZ, but it's also noticeably heavier, offers poor outward visibility and is less agile when turning. The 2019 Camaro also offers a turbocharged 4-cylinder or V6 engine option.
