With two models dueling for enthusiast dollars, the jointly-developed Subaru/Toyota sport coupe known as the Subaru BRZ or Scion FR-S here in America is rapidly becoming a hot commodity--for very good reason.
While cosmetically different, and available with different levels of equipment at slightly different prices, the BRZ is essentially a doppelganger to the FR-S. The one performance difference is a slightly lower rear spring rate in the BRZ, which makes it a bit more compliant and a touch more biased toward understeer at the limit. Otherwise, the two cars are functionally identical.
That's a very, very good thing. That sharing means the 2013 Subaru BRZ is an incredible buy for the driving enthusiast, priced just above $25,000, but handling as well as or better than most cars available at twice the price. Nimble, comfortable, surprisingly roomy given its compact exterior, and fantastically light weight, the 2013 BRZ is about as perfect a package as we could ask for.
