2018 Subaru BRZ tS: Same power, but better handling
No, it's not a BRZ STI, but the tS model does pack more performance still.
For the 2018, the BRZ tS debuts with suspension and aero upgrades to improve handling.
The suspension features Sachs dampers and uprated rated springs to reduce body roll.
Additional bracing can be found under the hood and under the car to stiffen the chassis.
Out back, a large carbon fiber rear wing provides additional downforce. The wing can be adjusted between two positions.
For the first time, the BRZ comes from the factory with 18-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires.
Like all other BRZs, the tS is powered by a 2.0-liter boxer four-cylinder engine with 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque.
The interior of the BRZ tS adds more red to the equation with the black leather and Alcantara seats getting red bolsters and accent stitching.
Subaru will only bring 500 examples of the BRZ tS to the US for 2018.
The 2018 Subaru BRZ tS starts at $34,355 including $860 for destination.
