What's New in the 2019 Subaru BRZ?

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. See the 2019 Subaru BRZ models for sale near you

Which BRZ is the Best?

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 Subaru BRZ vs the competition

2019 Ford Mustang -- The Mustang can't match the BRZ's handling, but its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine does offer more power and its interior more features.

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.

2019 Toyota 86 -- Nearly identical to the BRZ, the Toyota 86 offers a few more options, brighter colors and a larger dealer network.

Used Nissan 370Z -- A 2012-2017 Nissan 370Z is a sleek, 2-seat rear-drive sports car that offers better performance, a more powerful engine and the option of a convertible model.
