Subaru BRZ 2022 sold out! New Toyota 86 twin off to a hot start in Australia as buyers flock to relatively affordable Japanese performance

The BRZ is now in its second generation.

Subaru Australia has announced that the second-generation BRZ sports coupe has sold out.

Available for pre-order since September, Subaru Australia’s first factory allocation of 500 units is now spoken for – after just three months – with deliveries starting in the next few weeks.

“Subaru has a long proud history of engineering performance models that provide driving confidence and fun,” Subaru Australia managing director Blair Read said.

“The exhaustion of our first allocation of the BRZ is a true testament to the overall package the Subaru engineers have meticulously designed for the new-generation BRZ.”

There’s no word yet on when Subaru Australia’s next production slot will open and how many units it will offer, with customers being asked to register their interest either online or at a dealership.

As reported, the new BRZ is available in two grades, with the unnamed entry level priced from $38,990 plus on-road costs, while the S flagship kicks off at $40,190.

A six-speed manual is standard, but a six-speed torque-converter automatic can be optioned for $3800. Either way, a 170kW/249Nm 2.4-litre naturally aspirated petrol boxer four-cylinder engine is fitted, with the second-generation Toyota GR86 more or less identical.
