About a month after Scion announced the price of the FR-S ($24,930 before destination charge) Subaru has offically announced the MSRP for the BRZ. A 2013 Subaru BRZ in “Primium” trim with a manual transmission will set you back $25,495 before a $750 destination charge and any addtitional options you may throw on from the dealer. If you prefer an automatic expect that base price to jump up to $26,595. If you want “limited” trims of either a manual or automatic then you might pay as high as $28,595. I am not exactly sure why the BRZ has a slightly higher price point than the Scion FR-S but I am thinking it may have something to do with the available leather trim option and touch screen navigation which is not offered on the FR-S.
What do you think? Is Subaru asking too much for the BRZ or is this price just right? If you happen to be cool with the price then you will be happy to know that starting today dealers will be taking pre-orders. Hopefully we will not see a lot of price hiking. Currently Subaru does have the “no haggle” program that Scion does so I predict we may see some stories soon of unscropulous Subaru dealers asking for thousands over MSRP. I hope that I am wrong!
