Subaru BRZ tS Trim Returns

Subaru has unveiled the all-new BRZ tS trim, which returns to the top of the BRZ lineup.

The BRZ tS comes equipped with STI-tuned front and rear Hitachi dampers, Subaru designers said. A high-performance Brembo braking system, including gold-painted 4-piston front calipers, gold-painted 2-piston rear calipers and larger pads and rotors, provides stopping power. The BRZ tS also has 18-inch wheels mounted with 215/40 R18 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires.

Offered for the first time on any Subaru model with manual transmission is EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. The safety system includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking System, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lead Vehicle Start Alert. All 2024 Subaru BRZ models equipped with a manual transmission will include Eyesight as standard equipment.

Externally, the BRZ tS is distinguished by tS badging in the front grille and on the rear decklid. The exterior foldable mirrors and roof-mounted shark fin antenna come in a Crystal Black Silica finish. The tS will be available in all colors for the 2024 BRZ model line, all of which will be complemented by standard 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels in dark gray finish.

Inside, the BRZ tS cabin is wrapped in black upholstery with tS-only contrasting blue stitching on the front seat bolsters, leather-wrapped steering wheel, shifter boot and parking brake boot. Standard performance-design front seats with height-adjustable head restraints feature a blue leather accent down the middle. The leather-wrapped steering wheel integrates control switches for audio, cruise control and Bluetooth. BRIN NAUB nubuck-like material enhances the instrument panel visor and door trim. The iconic STI logo is displayed on the red starter button and customizable 7-inch digital instrument cluster, also updated with tS-exclusive red accents.

The 2024 BRZ tS is powered by the platform’s 2.4-liter (naturally aspirated) 228 hp Subaru Boxer engine paired with a six-speed close-ratio manual transmission. The BRZ comes equipped with standard features including a TORSEN limited-slip differential; Keyless Access with Push-Button Start; LED headlights (low and high beam) with automatic height adjustment; Vehicle Stability Control with Track Mode; dual-zone automatic climate control; Incline Start Assist; power fuel-door lock; power windows with auto up/down and pinch protection; rear center console storage box with dual USB-A input/charge ports and auxiliary input jack; variable intermittent windshield wipers with speed-sensing mist feature; and Welcome Lighting.

Based on the Limited trim, the tS also includes heated exterior power mirrors; upgraded audio system that includes a 2-channel amplifier and two additional speakers; Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Keep Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert; Steering Responsive Headlights; and STARLINK Safety and Security.
