Subaru's BRZ may not win every head-to-head matchup, but the sporty coupe never backs down from a challenge.
It's safe to say that Subaru's BRZ is under more pressure to perform than Scion's FR-S. Subaru is known for making sporty cars that can zip around tight corners. Scion is known for its box cars and the iQ. Consequently, the BRZ has been put in a variety of head-to-head competitions since its release. These range from simple comparisons over what car is the better buy to full-on Gymkhana races. You can check out all of the BRZ "vs." videos below to see just how often Subaru's coupe tops the competition.
