Subaru has a reputation for making cars that are good in all weather – but the BRZ probably wouldn’t be an ideal winter hack.
Like the Toyota GT86, the Subaru BRZ comes with skinny Michelin eco-tyres as standard – great fun if you like your roundabouts sideways, but not ideal for wintery commutes.
Well, with winter well and truly here, Subaru has the answer – all BRZs sold before February 2014 will come with a spare set of alloys and cold weather tyres free of charge.
The Toyo Snoprox tyres would usually cost £1,095 including fitting, and feature special tread patterns to improve braking and handling in poor weather conditions.
Buyers get a choice of silver or anthracite grey 17-inch alloys, and can store their ‘summer’ set of alloys at their local Subaru dealer until the weather warms up.
We can’t think of a better reason to invest in a sensible RWD coupe this winter…
