Over a year after the GT86 launch in Malaysia – finally its brother from another mother, the Subaru BRZ takes its stage in the Malaysian market. As much as they are differentiated between the two – they are both on the basis, similar. In conjunction with the Super GT 2013 in Sepang, Motor Image Sdn Bhd – the dealer of Subaru cars in Malaysia launched the Subaru BRZ as an addition to their model line-up.

VW claims the mk7 Golf GTI is their fastest, most powerful, most efficient and most dynamic GTI ever, and we put these claims to the test.
