2013 Subaru BRZ: Smart Seats

June 28, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

Leather is both a blessing and a curse in a car designed to go quickly around corners. Certainly it looks good. But it's slick. And by slick I mean "hang on to the steering wheel for dear life, slick." There are better materials.

Which is precisely why Subaru was smart enough to cover the BRZ's seating surfaces (the part where you actually sit) in alcantara suede. Not only does suede look good and stay cooler in the sun, but it keeps you in place while cornering. These are excellent seats.

Nice move, Subaru.
