The updated model is scheduled to go on sale in September.

Subaru has announced pricing details for its revised 2017 BRZ lineup.

The updated coupe starts at $26,315 (including $820 freight) for the base Premium trim with a six-speed manual transmission, representing a modest increase of just $100 over the 2016 model year.

Buyers can add a new Performance Package with Brembo brakes, Sachs shocks and unique 17-inch wheels, all for an extra $1,195. The kit is available for the 2.0 Limited trim, which starts at $28,465.

The company also offers a new Series.Yellow limited edition, with production capped at just 500 units. Based on the 2.0 Limited build with the Performance Package, the yellow-clad BRZ carries a $30,515 price tag.

The 2017 BRZ features improved handling, more aggressive body styling and enhanced convenience features. A new aluminum intake manifold and redesigned exhaust manifold help bump engine output to 205 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque, delivered to the rear wheels via a lower final drive ratio of 4.3:1.

The first 2017 models will begin arriving in US showrooms by September.
