SYDNEY – Jan 2, 2014: 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 six-speed 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:
