  • Subaru BRZ placed in insurance groups 30 and 31, bettering ratings earned by many rivals
  • Strong crash safety performance and high level of safety and security equipment fitted as standard

Subaru has today announced the insurance groups for its new BRZ sports car range.  The BRZ SE will have a group 30 insurance rating, with SE Lux models in group 31.  These ratings are lower than those of a number of competitors in the sportscar class, including the Audi TT 2.0T FSI (group 34) and Volkswagen Scirocco R (group 34).

Contributing to the BRZ’s competitive insurance costs are a strong crash safety performance – a result of the extensive use of high-tensile steel and rigid body structure – and a high level of standard safety and security equipment.  This includes the latest incarnation of Subaru’s advanced Vehicle Dynamics Control for improved road holding, and front, side, curtain and knee airbags.
