Sport-Tech Aozora Edition adds some visual flash to the rear-drive Subaru

Subaru’s only rear-wheel drive offering will get an extra trim level for 2015 and only a minimal bump of $100 for the base model when it becomes available later this year.

The new Sport-Tech Aozora Edition, starting at $31,395, is only available in Crystal White Pearl and World Rally Blue. It adds a STI front, side, and rear lip under-spoiler kit, 17-inch black STI alloy wheels, red brake calipers, illuminated start button, frameless rear view mirror, black and blue Alcantara with blue leather seats, blue stitching on interior pieces, and a body undercover to help with aerodynamics. The new trim is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Those looking to keep things a bit simpler will be greeted with a starting price of $27,395 for the base model BRZ. All models now receive a shark fin antenna, interior panel gunmetal carbon fibre trim, and redesigned exhaust tips.
