, Automotive Editor -

In a joint effort with Toyota, Subaru launched the BRZ in 2013 as the only model in its lineup that did not have available all-wheel drive. After plenty of success in its first two years on the market, the raving over the BRZ has become less audible, as it carries into the 2015 model year with very few changes.

What's New for 2015

For 2015, the BRZ receives a handful of changes that require a trained eye to catch. These changes include a better ride and more precise handling from revised dampers and smoother suspension movement. There are also little changes like a larger exhaust outlet, faux carbon-fiber dash insert and body-color shark-fin antenna. The biggest addition for 2015 is the limited-edition Series.Blue trim level.

Choosing Your Subaru BRZ

Unlike so many Subaru models, the BRZ does not have multiple engine options available, so all of the trim levels are limited to a 2-liter Boxer engine that cranks out 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 pound-feet of torque at 6,400 rpm. Because the BRZ is a proper sports car, it comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission in all of its trim levels -- an automatic transmission is only offered in the Limited trim.

Selecting the right trim for you is all about what features you want and how far you can stretch your budget. You can also opt for the Series.Blue model and get one of the 1,000 examples Subaru will build for 2015.

Premium

The Premium trim level acts as the base model for the 2015 BRZ, and checks in at $25,696. For this admission fee, buyers get a decent amount of amenities, including 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, HID headlights, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, simulated carbon-fiber dash insert, manual climate control, and an eight-speaker audio system with a 6.1-inch display screen, navigation, AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM capabilities, Bluetooth audio, hands-free phone operation and 3.5-mm aux-in jack.

Limited

The Limited trim level tosses an extra $2,000 onto the Premium's base price; the optional automatic transmission adds on another $1,100. With the Limited trim, the BRZ gets an added touch of sportiness and class with a rear spoiler, fog lights, keyless entry, Alcantara inserts on the seats with leather bolsters, dual-zone auto climate control, heated front seats and mirrors, and courtesy lights.

Series.Blue

The Series.Blue trim level is technically the range-topping trim for the 2015 BRZ, but it is limited to only 1,000 units. For its $29,490 base price, buyers get a functional STI body kit that includes under-body panels to help reduce aerodynamic drag from 0.28 to 0.27 Cd. Also part of this limited-edition package are red-painted brake calipers; black-painted, 17-inch STI wheels; blue leather seat bolsters and headrests; blue accent stitching; blue and black, leather-wrapped steering wheel, shifter boot and parking brake handle; blue center console kneepads and door trim; and BRZ-embroidered seatbacks and floor mats.

CarsDirect Tip

The Premium trim level is the way to go, as it has a low base price and everything you need in a sports car. With the Limited's extra cost comes extra weight that can hamper the natural feeling of the BRZ. Additionally, the automatic-equipped model is significantly slower than the manual, so avoid this $1,100 option if possible.
