The 2018 Subaru BRZ — and platform mate the Toyota 86, for that matter — is a good car. It’s one of the most dynamically sound vehicles you can buy at any price, with excellent handling, weight distribution and responsiveness. The fact that it starts at under $30,000 is gravy.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to test out the 2018 BRZ tS, and it’s… even better. It’s got stickier Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires; upgraded dampers and coil springs; lightweight 18-inch wheels; a giant, manually adjustable carbon-fiber rear spoiler and Brembo brakes. Those changes only enhance the BRZ’s desirable qualities: If the BRZ is a good car, the BRZ tS is a very good car.
