Though many have found the production versions of the Subaru-Toyota joint sports coupe to be somewhat less thrilling than hoped, the 2013 Subaru BRZ is certainly the better of the two, aesthetically speaking.
These live images show it carries the staged, studio-shot presence through to reality as well.
The front end of the BRZ in particular is more daring and aesthetically pleasing than the Toyota version, with the inverted/stretched hexagonal shape of the main grille opening seeming to suit the car's lines better.
The Subaru's somewhat less-busy headlights also wear well, with the only other notably different feature being the upper fender vent/applique treatment.
Inside, the BRZ is a bit more, well, plainly styled than we'd hoped, but on the other hand, the Subieyota's inspiration, the AE86, was a fairly plain car from the factory as well--it was the aftermarket that turned it into a legend. Perhaps that will happen for the BRZ, and its Toyota counterpart, as well.
We certainly look forward to what comes of a healthy turbocharger, upgraded coil over suspension, wider wheels, stickier tires, and perhaps some more aerodynamic body work.
