2020 Subaru BRZ vs. Its Competition

2020 Subaru BRZ
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Toyota 86—formerly Scion FR-S—is the BRZ’s twin by all accounts and offers the same performance with slightly different styling.

Both the Fiat 124 Spider and Mazda MX-5 Miata ride on a shared platform with sharp moves, but the Fiat does things with Italian panache while the Mazda is back-to-basics fun.

If a bit more space is of the essence, both the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang have pleasing driving dynamics, and come in thrifty turbo-4 configurations, as well as both a coupe and convertible.
