Subaru BRZ launched in Oman, Saudi Arabia & UAE
The Subaru BRZ, the carmaker’s first rear-wheel-drive in a long time, has just hit the dealer in Abu Dhabi. It has already been launched in Oman and Saudi Arabia recently.
The BRZ was jointly developed in a Subaru-Toyota collaboration that also resulted in the near-identical Toyota 86. In fact, the engine and certain body panels in the Toyota version still bear the “Subaru” branding. The only visible difference is a reshaped front bumper, although the BRZ is also said to have slightly-stiffer suspension for better handling.
The Subaru BRZ will only be offered in a loaded trim in the UAE, which means it has near-identical features to the top-spec Toyota 86, right down to the same 17-inch alloys and Yaris-style exhaust tips. Other features include an automatic gearbox, HID headlights, basic CD/MP3 stereo with Bluetooth and USB, and fabric seats.
The Subaru BRZ costs Dhs 126,000 and is available at the Subaru dealer in Abu Dhabi. The Dubai dealer is launching the car in a month or two with similar specifications. The BRZ has been available in Saudi Arabia and Oman since late last month.
