2013 Subaru BRZ Long Term Road Test


2013 Subaru BRZ: Well, That Was Easy

September 1, 2012

I took a few minutes to check out Subaru's website and the configurator for the BRZ. Just for funsies, you know. So I picked my trim (there are only two, Premium or Limited), picked my color and, well, that's it. I had forgotten that Subaru's going with a very streamlined approach for this car. I had previously written that this would be the car that Porsche would build it if built a $25,000 sports car. But I'm wrong. If it were a Porsche, it'd have inumerable options down to the color of the owner's manual case.

I'm conflicted. On one hand, I really like the simplicity of it all. Pick your color and you're done. But I kind of miss the fun of more personalization that comes about from cars like a Mini Cooper or even a Mustang. (And while there's a bit more for the Scion FR-S, it's not brimming with choices, either.)

What do you think?
