Yeah the wording is weird for sure. Would make more people buy the premium I feel.

The wording, although not the best, is grammatically proper and means that the limited still gets dual zone. They wouldn't talk about a feature downgrade in a press release. Notice how they don't mention the lack of satnav, they just talk about the new radio.

Ok I went back a re-re-re-read it...let me break it down... Here's the sentence as it's written...

"The BRZ Limited substitutes a dual-zone automatic climate control for the Premium model’s manual HVAC system"

Basically it's saying that the Limited substitutes the manual climate controls found in the Premium for dual zone automatic controls in the Limited. Silly grammar.

original post

That's exactly how I'm reading it. Why are they down grading that limited? I was waiting for a 2016...but if they are going to pull this crap...

I hope that there is an option to add the rear camera to previous years brz. This car needs a rear camera to park, its hard to see with those big side pillars

No, it will.
I'm no English major and the grammar in the press release is correct like recent posters have pointed out.

Jeezy Creezy. The sentence is grammatically correct and means that the Limited ditches the manual HVAC and uses dual-zone instead. Edit: trust me, I nitpick words for a living

See by deleting the dual zone controls it's worth at least 10 wheel HP...

That's taking a step back imo. While the navigation system wasn't the best, it still worked ok for what I needed. I'd rather keep the price the same and keep the navi.
