86 vs. BRZ: Which Sports Car Should You Buy?

If you’ve shopped for a fun-to-drive car in the $30,000 price range over the past several years, the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S have probably crossed your path. Both cars get a mild refresh for 2017, including the FR-S’ rebranding as the Toyota 86.

The BRZ and 86 both seat four. They were jointly developed between Subaru and Toyota. Although these mechanically identical sports cars have more factors in common than not, there are some subtle differences that can help you decide between the two. Both cars were finalists for our 2017 Best Sports Car for the Money award. Deciding between the BRZ and 86 could be as simple as choosing the brand you prefer, though there are other factors at work. Read on for a closer look at the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86.
