Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ: You don't mess with imperfection

As the most enthusiastic motoring aficionados descend into a collective delirium about whether Toyota’s revived six-cylinder sports coupe really is deserving of the Supra name, given its heavy reliance on BMW componentry, it seems the Supra’s baby brother has stepped out of the firing line for a moment...

Drift Cadet: Learning how to drift... Without ruining your car

2015 Subaru BRZ - spare tyre tip

Many brands are switching to temporary spare tyres and puncture repair kits in order to save boot space. But with Subaru and the BRZ - things are a little different...

Deciding to buy a brand new car can be a tough decision. And deciding exactly which brand new car to buy can be even more difficult. So what happens when the two cars you're looking at share the same engine, gearbox, platform, and damn near the same looks? What happens when the two cars you're looking at are the 2017 Subaru BRZ and 2017 Toyota 86 GT? Which do you pick then? We hit the road, and the track, to find out...

Mazda MX-5 RF v Subaru BRZ comparison

Power up front, drive to the back, a stick-shift in the middle – it’s how nature intended sports cars to be. And these two purist offerings – the 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF and the updated 2017 Subaru BRZ – are true to that formula. Both of these Japanese, sporty, fun and affordable cars may follow the same path towards inducing grins, particularly when fitted with manual gearboxes as our test cars are, but there are some fairly large differences between them...

Toyota 86 vs Subaru BRZ Comparison Review

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito were easy. But is it possible to pick the difference between another set of twins, the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ? That’s the question CarAdvice set to answer across a range of beautifully sunlit country roads.

2017 Subaru BRZ review

It had been 10 long years since 'my' last car, having crossed to the dark side of motorbikes. Why did I buy the BRZ? After a few near misses, the statistics and chance of surviving on a bike much longer before my luck ran out wasn't promising. Its replacement had to be quick, but above all, fun...

2017 Subaru BRZ Premium review

The purchasing decision After three years of daily driving an endearingly characterful ’14 Fiat 500 S, which both looked and drove like a scurrying field mouse, it was time for a bit of an upgrade. The brief for the replacement was fairly straightforward. Like the 500, it had to be fun to drive in the urban environment, where it would spend about 95 per cent of its life...

2017 Subaru BRZ Premium review

Hands down the most fun car I have driven for under $30K. Coming from a family of FPVs and high-horsepower V8s, I never thought I’d enjoy driving a mild 147–151kW sports coupe. How I was wrong. While you’re not gonna win any drag races, you cannot throw this car into corners without having a grin from ear to ear...

2013 Subaru BRZ S review

It has been my dream car from the day I saw it in 2012 when I was 18, to the day I bought it in 2016 when I was 22. I have tried to be as unbiased as possible, but I do apologise if I get emotion involved in this piece. The first question that would pop into your mind would be why I chose this over the GTS86 – well, I didn't...
