Differences Between 2019 Subaru BRZ & 2019 Toyota 86

Serving Panama City, Lynn Haven, and Quincy

The 2019 Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 are sporty roadsters, both of which supply sporty handling and a fun ride around town. So, which is right for you? Our comparison guide will help you figure out which of these two-door sport coupes is more your speed.

Power and Performance

In terms of performance, these two models have a lot in common. The 2019 Subaru BRZ gives you a lot for your money, with standard rear-wheel drive and punchy engine performance. When paired with the standard six-speed manual transmission, the BRZ’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. If you decide on the six-speed automatic transmission, those figures drop to 200 horses and 151 pound-feet of torque. Back in the Toyota 86, you’ll find the exact same powertrain options. Both models also offer excellent steering and handling, helping you move through crowded highways and down winding mountain paths with ease. The Subaru BRZ is our overall favorite, however, giving you the most fun driving experience with its balanced, forgiving handling.

Passenger Comfort

When it comes to keeping you comfy, the 2019 Subaru BRZ excels. Front seats are roomy and supportive for hours of on-road comfort. They also give you the adjustments you need to find your own perfect spot behind the wheel. As you climb the BRZ trim levels – Premium, Limited, and limited-edition Series.Gray – you’ll find more and more luxury items. These include black leather heated seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Toyota 86 cabin also has a lot to offer in terms of stylish comfort features, but we think the BRZ rules when it comes to seating comfort.

Technology Features

Here, the Subaru BRZ easily surpasses its Toyota lookalike. It comes standard with a 6.2-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, so you can stream music over the eight-speaker sound system. When you choose the BRZ Limited, you’ll find even more tech features. The TomTom navigation system helps you avoid accidents and find the quickest way home. The upgraded 7-inch touchscreen is loaded with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, displaying apps on the central screen so there’s no need to pick up your phone. Press a button on the steering wheel to access your phone’s Siri or Google voice controls and operate your phone without looking away from traffic.
