3. Subaru BRZ
A BRZ is a lot like the Toyota that it shares its sheet metal with. The design has become outdated in the last couple of years. Minimal updates have made the car more of an enthusiast thing above all else. The benefit of the BRZ over the 86 is that you get the AWD powertrain whereas the Toyota is RWD. BRZ owners are treated to the usual Subaru interior treatment. BRZ is targeting a different audience than say an Outback, but the car is still nicely appointed. Yet the price tag is still high for what you get, and the engine is outdated at best.
The BRZ was a great concept since Subaru hasn’t had its own sports car since the 90s. But with a lack of serious updates, the BRZ is not in-line with the current crop of sports cars. Features are everything in today’s well-appointed vehicles and the BRZ needs an upgrade. The car has lost a lot of its initial buzz.
