Subaru BRZ Coupe (2017 - )

The purist’s hot hatch alternative, the Subaru BRZ – like its Toyota GT86 doppelganger – focuses on traditional rear-wheel drive handling and feedback over raw power. This is a traditional sporting coupe in every sense and only really rivalled by the open-top Mazda MX-5 for sporting thrills at this price point.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

A sporty coupe like the BRZ is a car you buy with your heart rather than your head and, for all its old-school thrills, costs more to run than other performance cars you could have for the same money. Where the hot hatches you may also be considering use turbocharged engines for extra power and tax-friendly emissions the BRZ’s motor is penalised for its high CO2 figure, the more so if you opt for the manual. Because it nudges into the next band it cops a penalty of several hundred pounds for the first year of tax, which is unfortunate because it’s by far the nicer version to drive. The CO2 is also high compared with the equivalently priced Audi TT or Mazda MX-5 RF and, even though it’s a lot cheaper upfront than a Porsche, the rock solid residual values of the similarly focused 718 Cayman mean it might work out better value over the course of your ownership. On the plus side the real-world fuel costs actually play out better than the stats suggest so, at the pumps, the BRZ costs less to run than you might expect.
