What’s the Better Driver’s Car: Mustang V6 or Subaru BRZ?

It seems like an unlikely comparison, but both cost around the same.

This pairing may seem a bit off at first, but when you think about, it makes sense. Why exactly? The Ford Mustang V6 and the Subaru BRZ are both affordable drivers' cars. Although the BRZ is powered by a 2.0-liter 'boxer' four, Motor Trend felt that it was an adequate foe for the Mustang, which comes standard with a 3.7-liter V6. The BRZ's output is just 200hp (that's 100hp per liter) while the Mustang produces 305hp.

Yes, on paper this doesn't work, but Motor Trend gives each a thorough drive on some winding roads and at Willow Springs with pro race driver Randy Pobst behind the wheel. The Mustang is the larger and more powerful car, but the BRZ is lighter and more agile. Check out the video here and see what a professional driver thinks is the better driver's car.
