Changes to the exterior and the interior aren’t wide-reaching, but there are a few elements that will differentiate it from the rest of the lineup. The car is finished in a very cool-looking World Rally Blue paint combined with black BRZ emblem on the tailgate, black exterior mirrors, and black wheels. Unfortunately, the model didn’t receive special wheels, but it will be offered with 18-inch aluminum wheels as standard.

For the interior, Subaru opted for ultrasuede and black leather upholstery for the seats combined with contrasting blue accents and stitching to match the exterior look. The same black leather has been used for the steering wheel, the gear knob, the handbrake, and the door armrests with the same contrasting blue stitching. An even more contrasting image is obtained by using dark metallic accents on the dashboard, instrument cluster, and steering wheel. And, since we are talking about a special edition, Subaru placed the words "10th Anniversary" into the door card.

A six-speed manual transmission will be offered as standard, while the 6-automatic transmission comes as an option. In both versions, the power is sent to the rear wheels.
