So it is confirmed that the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ will be hitting the Malaysian roads anytime soon, and if some of you are still wondering, they are both basically just the same car. The Toyota 86/ Subaru BRZ is the outcome of both the manufacturers’ collaboration, where Subaru takes care of the vehicle’s engineering, development and production, while Toyota handles the styling and product planning. So maybe you could put the 86/BRZ as a Subaru wrapped in Toyota’s skin.



And do not be confused with Scion FR-S or the GT86 though as they are indeed, just the same Toyota 86. The Scion FR-S is what the guys in the U.S. call it and the GT86 is for the European market.



Since there is not much difference between these two RWD sports cars, which one do you prefer, or the one that you think will sell the most? Performance wise, they both house the same 2.0l, 200hp naturally aspirated Boxer engine, so no power difference between them.



External features? Well, from a distance, it is quite hard to tell which is which, as they share a pretty similar silhouette. But being up-close, each has their own distinctive features like a different bumper design. Or probably it will be the case of the car’s brand then?



The same poll has been done by the guys at autoblog, and it seems like the Subaru BRZ gets half of the overall vote, and the other half went almost evenly towards the 86 and looking at both of them as just the same car. So what does the guys here at Zerotohundred has to say?

Hard to define which category that this car falls into more. I think it has equal doses of each brand's signature wonders. From toyota, it got the genes of the legendary 2 door, superb handling FR drift machine. From subaru, the infamous boxer!

But as for me, I'll chose toyota because I drive one.
