2013 Subaru BRZ: Not Feeling the Interior

August 23, 2012


Call me crazy, but I'm not loving the interior of our BRZ. This only strikes me as odd because I was expecting to like it a touch more than the cabin of the FR-S. Sure, they're essentially the same, but I was hoping the Subaru would feel a tad more refined since it was supposed to be the more "loaded" vehicle of the two.

I'm not even sure what it is about the BRZ that leaves me cold. The odd placement of the starter button is no big deal, but the switches just above it are a little to "Mini" in my mind. The gauges on the BRZ look a little too bland, too. On the FR-S they get metallic faces that make them stand out a little more.

Again, it sounds like so much nit picking and it largely is, but so far I like the FR-S cabin better. That is all.
