2018 Toyota 86 vs. 2018 Subaru BRZ

The development history of the Toyota 86 covers a lot of ground but certainly does not travel in a straight line. When the innovative light-weight sports coupe was first introduced, it was launched under the now-shuttered Scion banner. Prior to that, the platform that would become the Toyota 86, was originally built through a partnership with Subaru. If this is the kind of vehicle you want to have in your driveway, you might be wondering about the differences between the 2018 Toyota 86 vs. 2018 Subaru BRZ. There are certainly going to be several similarities between the twin sport coupes, but the Toyota 86 carries a few things with it that might not appear on the spec sheet which could make all the difference in the world. The 2018 Toyota 86 is available at the Spitzer Toyota showroom. Contact a Spitzer Toyota product expert today by calling, 412-365-4281.

Toyota and Subaru used the same basic platform and powertrain for both the 86 and BRZ. Under the hood of both vehicles is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a six-speed manual transmission. Additionally, both sport coupes have a stated performance output of 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. Furthermore, Toyota and Subaru have also provided an automatic transmission option. Where the two vehicles start to differ is with the proprietary technology that each individual coupe has to offer. Toyota has equipped the 2018 Toyota 86 with features including Bluetooth connectivity that runs through a 7-inch touchscreen interface for the infotainment system. Additionally, the Toyota system also features native voice commands.
