For The Subaru BRZ is great fun to drive thanks to its sharp handling and crisp responses. It's well equipped and affordable, too.
Against You need to really thrash the engine for the sort of pace you expect, and the interior looks pretty cheap. Not as practical as the best coupes, either.
What Car? says
The Subaru BRZ is a fun sports coupe that just pips the identical Toyota GT86 thanks to its tighter handling, but the more sophisticated Audi TT offers a better all-round package.

Target Price team says:
So, should you buy the Subaru BRZ or a Toyota GT86? Both cars are identically priced, both are built by Subaru and both produce the same power and torque.
Our money would go to the Subaru. The BRZ's engine seems to develop more mid-range clout and revs more freely.
Also, the BRZ's firmer suspension gives a slight handling edge, which is more in keeping with the brief of a sports coupe even if it does impact on comfort.

Fun, fun and yet more fun. It handles brilliantly and moves fairly quickly. The layout inside makes it feel like a proper driver's car with everything…
Brilliant sport car that I bought new. I looked at the competition such as Nissan 350Z and Infinity G37 but they cost 50% more and do not deliver 50%…
