- subaru has announced pricing for the 2022 brz, which starts at $28,955.

- the new brz will arrive at dealerships in the fall, and the related toyota gr 86 will follow later.
the new 2022 subaru brz, which retains its rear-wheel-drive layout and boxer-four engine but features more horsepower and a nicer interior, will cost $28,955 to start. that starting price is actually cheaper than the 2020 model, which was only available starting with the limited trim level that cost $29,745.
a six-speed manual transmission is standard equipment, and a six-speed automatic is $1600 extra—though we don't know why you'd pay extra for a slushbox in a sporty coupe like this. the premium trim level has an 8.0-inch infotainment screen, a limited-slip differential, and 17-inch wheels. the limited starts at $31,455 and adds summer tires and 18-inch matte-grey wheels, along with blind-spot monitoring. the automatic version of the brz limited has a few additional driver-assistance features compared with the manual.
we're curious to see how the brz's twin, the 2022 toyota gr 86, stacks up in terms of pricing and equipment, but that car will go on sale later than the brz in the u.s. the subaru is scheduled to arrive at dealerships starting in the fall.
