Last November, Subaru provided a preview of the second-generation Toyota 86 with the updated BRZ coupe. The similarities between the two on the driver’s seat are different, but they share the same platform, powertrain and other similarities. Toyota released the GR 86 yesterday, although there have been videos that compare it with the same-level cars on the platform, and the handling of the two is different.

Even the interior has almost the same interior hard points, switchgear, pedals and vents, but the badges and decorations are different.
The similarities extend to the exterior design, and the front is the biggest difference between the two. Toyota’s front face in between is more aggressive. However, all these similarities do not bring about the same driving experience, and this is a fascinating aspect of the automotive industry. Every car manufacturer has a unique style that can make a profound difference in the feel of the car. It will take some time before the 2022 Toyota GR 86 and the 2022 Subaru BRZ enter the showroom, although we are eager to see a comparison between the two in total elimination.
