Guess, the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ always have the same opinion in they way they do something. These two also have presented the same stripped down models in the Japanese market.
As you see the Toyota 86 RC you may mistake it as the Subaru BRZ RA. Well, that’s common since both have very identical styling. The only distinctive feature is that the 86 RC’s front and rear bumpers are not painted. Apart of that difference, either Toyota or Subaru models bring unpainted door handles and mirror caps and 16-inch steel wheels. in addition both models have no fog lights up front.
Unexpectedly both automaker also fitted their creations with the air-condition, audio system and speakers, the aluminum-look trim, alloy pedals and mats and take off their plastic that wraps the steering wheel, handbrake and gearshift levers. On the other hand, the Japanese automaker does further than that by getting rid off the decorative plastic coat of the engine bay.
The rear brakes on both are not ventilated, while the two do not have limited- slip rear differential. However, the two are still retaining their 2.0 liter boxer engine, delivering output of 200 HP. the six- speed manual transmission is also offered in the Toyota and Subaru brands.
Due to that removal of the plastics covers, both cars are now lighter compared to the standard versions at 20 kg to 60 kg, depends on the trim- level.
The Subaru BRZ RA is offered at 2,058,000 Yen or equal to US$26,900, while the Toyota 86 RC is cost at 1.99 million Yen or around US$26,000 in the Japanese market.
