MX-5 Club Vs. BRZ: Is This The Hardest Decision For A Gearhead To Make?


It's two of the best sports cars duking it out.

As anyenthusiast knows, the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S twins are some of the best choices for spirited driving. They’re enjoyable, driver-centered and affordable. As a reasonably priced rear-wheel drive sports car, the BRZ has been in a class of its own—until now. TheMazda MX-5 Miata has always been the BRZ’s arch-rival, but the Club version makes the convertible better than ever in its latest iteration. To answer the $30,000 dilemma, Motor Trend pitted the BRZagainst Miata to see which one is the best.

The Miata Club comes with BBS wheels, Brembo brakes and Bilstein shocks. So are these upgrades enough to negate the 45-hp advantage of the BRZ? Find out below.
