SUBARU'S BRZ sports coupe has been comprehensively updated for next year with changes to its exterior, interior, powertrain, suspension and safety.

The car's shape has been enhanced with a wider, lower stance at the front end complete with a 45 degree stepped accent on the bumper which limits airflow into the air intake to mprove handling and ride.

The BRZ's new face is finished off with full-LED headlights, a first for Subaru, new-look rear lamps and aerodynamic pedestal spoiler top off the rear of the car, and the wheels are now 10-spoke aluminium.

Inside there's a 4.2-inch colour LCD multi-information display has been added into the instrument panel which features a G-force meter, steering angle gauge, brake force gauge, lap timer and torque/power curves for bringing out the sportier side of any driver.

The steering wheel has also been redesigned and made smaller with different leather to increase the driver's grip and is finished off with audio control switches.

Subaru has also upgraded the BRZ's suspension, engine and drivetrain. The dampers have been redesigned to reduce body roll, increase precision whilst cornering, as well as damping vibration, delivering improved ride comfort.

For sporty drivers, a new "Track" mode improves the stability of the car and allows for more refined accelerator inputs when driving on race circuits and for urban drivers there is a new type of hill start assist to help with uphill starts or downhill reversing.

From spring 2017, the BRZ will be available in SE Lux trim only with either a manual or automatic transmission.

Prices for the new model have yet to be confirmed althought the current BRZ in SE Lux trim costs from £23,640.
