Comparison Test: 2022 Hyundai Veloster N vs. Subaru BRZ vs. Toyota GR86 vs. VW GTI

The casualty list of affordable performance cars is pretty much every car we search for on Bring a trailer: Probe, Prelude, Celica, Cobalt SS, SRT4, Impulse, Talon, Daytona, Laser, 240SX, XT6.
A victim of a culture obsessed with sitting high and cornering slowly, going fast on a budget is harder than ever. Decades ago, nearly every brand sold an affordable sporty car; now we’re down to just a few choices.
We’ve gathered four of the last players here. Yes, you could count it as three if you consider the Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GR86 as one car, something we reserve the right to do when it’s convenient, like maybe in next month’s 10Best issue. Having both along allows us to explore the differences and avoid angry letters asking why we included one and not the other.

2022 Subaru BRZ and Toyota GR86 Post Serious Performance Numbers

The first-generation Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86/Scion FR-S were fun cars that emphasized the subjective driving experience over cold performance numbers. Hey, if you can slide around in a rear-wheel-drive coupe with a manual transmission, who cares if you’re doing it at 10 mph, right? It’s theater of the mind, people. But now that we’ve tested the new 2022 Subaru BRZ and Toyota GR86, we’ve affirmed that you can have it both ways—lightweight, naturally aspirated, rear-drive purism can coexist with competitive acceleration. And grip. The Toyobaru twins are still minimalist and affordable, but now they deliver a 5.4-second zero-to-60 mph run and a 13.9-second quarter-mile at 101 mph.

2023 Subaru Solterra arrives in US with standard AWD and 220-mile estimated range

The Subaru Solterra is the brand’s first fully electric vehicle and a joint venture between Toyota, who sells this same EV has the BZ4X. (Super glad Subaru went with an actual word, even if it’s made up.) The Solterra made its official debut in Japan last week, but Subaru pulled the wraps off the North American version on Wednesday, confirming many of the EV’s US specs. Mechanically speaking, not much… Read More →

2023 Subaru XV spied testing

The 2023 Subaru XV has been spied testing for the first time, ahead of its global unveiling rumoured for late 2022 or early 2023. Caught on camera on US roads by YouTube user KindelAuto, the next-generation XV’s styling is an evolutionary step forward from its predecessor, mixing the current model’s high-riding hatchback shape with smoother lines and design cues from Subaru’s latest models. Up front, slim new LED headlights link… Read More →

How Subaru and Prodrive Built Rallying Royalty

This week, we turn the time machine’s dial to 1996, for the preseason ahead of the World Rally Championship’s 1997 season. That means a trip to jolly old England, where the crew at Prodrive were hard at work screwing together Subaru’s effort for the following season. That car ended up being remarkable, the manufacturer’s championship winner for 1997, and one of the most beloved rally cars of all time. You’ll… Read More →
