BRZ now in deal­er­ships

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - SHEPPARTON CAR WEEKLY -

Subaru’s ul­tra-pop­u­lar BRZ sports coupe is now avail­able for sale in the brand’s au­tho­rised re­tail net­work for the first time.

Un­til Jan­uary 1, 2014, the multi award-win­ning BRZ was sold ex­clu­sively on­line in Aus­tralia, due to lim­ited pro­duc­tion avail­abil­ity from Ja­pan.

But with in­creased man­u­fac­tur­ing of BRZ, it is now avail­able via all au­tho­rised Subaru deal­ers.

The rec­om­mended Na­tional Drive­away Price (NDP) for the sixspeed man­ual is $37,150 and for the six-speed au­to­matic is $39,730 NDP. This is in line with the on­line prices.

Nick Se­nior, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor, Subaru Aus­tralia, said: “Pro­duc­tion ef­fi­cien­cies at Fuji Heavy In­dus­tries, the maker of Subaru cars, have pre­sented this op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand BRZ sales into our re­tail net­work.

“It’s great for our cus­tomers, be­cause they have the choice of buy­ing on­line at a drive­away price, or us­ing the more tra­di­tional dealer method.

“It’s also great for deal­ers in our net­work, which have the op­por­tu­nity to dis­play one of Aus­tralia’s most pop­u­lar sports cars in their show­room.”

Subaru has sold 1800 BRZs in Aus­tralia since launch in July 2012.

Such was the car’s pop­u­lar­ity on launch that the ini­tial al­lo­ca­tion sold-out af­ter just three hours of go­ing “live” on the web.

The car has gained mul­ti­ple in­ter­na­tional awards, in­clud­ing: • Carsales Aus­tralia net­work’s 2013 Peo­ple’s Choice Best Per­for­mance Car Un­der $100 000 (with the Toy­ota 86). • mo­tor­ 2013 “Rec­om­mends” award - a pre­ferred per­for­mance car un­der $100 000 • 2013 Ward’s 10 “Best En­gines”
