2017 Toyota 86 vs 2017 Subaru BRZ
We’re extremely excited about one of the newest vehicles joining the Toyota lineup, a vehicle recovered from the discontinuation of the Scion brand, the next version of the Scion FR-S. Around the world in places like Europe and Asia, the Scion FR-S was known as the Toyota 86, and now that Toyota has discontinued the Scion brand and brought several of its popular vehicles into the fold, the 86 is coming to Canada. We thought we’d compare it to one of its direct competitors to see the advantages and differences between the 2017 Toyota 86 vs 2017 Subaru BRZ.
Advantages of the 2017 Toyota 86
In truth, the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ are almost the exact same vehicle. Toyota partnered up with Subaru when they first built the sports car back in 2012, and Subaru is the sole manufacturer of the two sports cars. Featuring sports car staples like a front mid-engine, rear wheel drivetrain and 2+2 seating, if you’re looking for the perfect sports car for any driver with a lead foot, then look no further than one of these two cars.
However, while the vehicles have many similarities, the newest version (AKA the North American version) of the vehicle does actually have a couple advantages over the BRZ. As you can see by glancing at the table above, the Subaru BRZ gives up a bit of fuel efficiency to the 86. Through city streets, the Toyota 86 utilizes 0.8 litres less fuel every 100 kilometres driven, and jumping on the highway it utilizes 0.8 l/100km less as well.
The last two rows of the table showcase the similarities of the two vehicles. Their engines both deliver 200 horsepower, which is plenty of power to deliver sporty performance in the lightweight vehicle. Plus, they both have a 6.9 cubic foot trunk.
