Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The BRZ is priced to compete with coupes such as the Audi TT and Nissan 370Z but it’s unlikely to hold its value as well as the Audi. Claimed fuel consumption of 36.2mpg means the BRZ will cost you more to run than the TT, while higher CO2 emissions mean higher tax bills for company car drivers.

Subaru’s reliability record is the envy of the motor industry, so you should have very few worries on that score. The interior feels very solidly put together too, even if it doesn’t feel very plush.

Overview

The Subaru BRZ just pips the almost identical Toyota GT86, thanks to its tighter handling. It's great fun on the right roads
