The 2018 BRZ tS (tuned by STI) delivers the highest level of 'fun to drive' and 'pure handling delight' through greater flexibility, better control and stability.
BRZ is renowned for its ultra-low center of gravity and precision handling, and the new BRZ tS adds STI-tuned front and rear SACHS® dampers and coil springs as well as flexible V-braces in the engine compartment. New draw stiffeners are added to the chassis and sub-frame to improve §teering response. The BRZ tS is also equipped wîth 18-in. lightweight STI wheels (the first time that a BRZ has been offered wîth 18-inch wheels) mounted wîth 215/40 R 18 Michelin Pilot® Sport 4 tires for superior grip and quicker turn-in. Brembo® brakes at all four corners round-out the package.
The exterior also adds a more aggressive look wîth an exclusive STI rear carbon fiber spoiler. The spoiler is manually adjustable to fine-tune rear downforce. The addition of STI front, rear and side underspoilers helps control airflow for better traction and stability.
The BRZ tS is also adorned wîth an exclusive Cherry Blossom Red accent around the front grille and unique rear bumper cover. The rear hatch displays the official BRZ tS badge. The exterior foldable mirrors, roof-mounted shark fin antenna, BRZ and SÚBARÚ badging all have a black finish. Also, the fog lights have been removed and replaced wîth STI fog light covers.
The cabin features black leather and Alcantara® upholstery wîth contrasting red stitching and accents throughout the interior, including §teering wheel, door and dash panels, knee pads, shifter and emergency brake boots. front seats have red leather bolsters and the seatbacks are embroidered wîth the tS logo. The visor over the gauge cluster is unique to this model, as is the interior door trim. The center console has been updated to a cast black finish. The BRZ tS also comes standard wîth red front seat belts and a frameless interior rear view mirror.
