Sportier BRZ/final WRX coming

Having trouble deciding between the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ twins?

Well Subaru may have just made the choice for you.

The Japanese brand has just released details of a new, sportier variant called the BRZ ‘S’, which will go on sale in June.

Featuring new look bodywork, a rear-lip spoiler, black STI wheels and tweaked suspension (new coil-over springs and a flexible tower bar), it's tipped to cost $40,000.

The S will also get beefed up equipment including parking sensors, a reverse camera, sat-nav and an STI sports exhaust.

Expect Toyota to hit back with something similar, but the BRZ S isn’t the only new Subaru coming Down Under.

September will see the brand release a special edition WRX 20th anniversary model – touted as the last limited edition of the current WRX shape.

Limited to 300 units, it will feature Subaru’s famous WR Blue paint and gold 17-inch alloys, new seats and interior trim and an STI front lip and rear spoiler.
