2020 Toyota 86 vs. Its Competition

2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Subaru BRZ is, for all intents and purposes, exactly the same as the 86 minus some styling changes, but those looking for a more hardcore experience should choose the Subaru and its track-ready tS model.

The Fiat 124 Spider and Mazda MX-5 Miata are also a pair of platform-mates, and offer top-down driving fun in two slightly different flavors.

Both the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang are arguably more sports cars than muscle cars, and with turbo-4 engines equipped, they’re lighter and more balanced than ever.
