For 2017, the BRZ features an updated nose with LED lighting. The tweaks are subtle, but do a lot to modernize the design and take it upmarket visually.

The BRZ's rear end gets sophisticated-looking whistle-shaped LED light fixtures and a new rear wing.

The BRZ's profile hasn't changed much, and is still marked out by tidy overhangs and a road-hugging stance.

The BRZ's interior needed more help than its exterior, and while still not particularly fashionable, materials have been meaningfully improved, as has center-stack tech.

Grippy buckets are standard, with the Series Yellow getting appropriately xanthous stitching and accents.

LED lights do a lot to update the front end, and the Series Yellow receives matching LED fog lights, too.

LEDs are known for producing a brighter, whiter cast, while using less energy and enjoying longer lifespans.

Performance Package-equipped models (as all Edition Yellow models are) feature 17-inch alloys that are a half-inch wider -- 7.5 inches -- than lesser models.

All Performance Pack models' black-painted alloy wheels needed to be slightly wider to clear the Brembo brakes and their larger rotors front and rear.

LEDs illuminate the new tail lamp fixtures, too.
