In this video Jenna has a closer look at the 2017 Subaru BRZ and compares it to the Toyota 86 reviewed earlier by Amelia. The two cars are among the best choices for sporty and affordable and they are well worth the hype that surrounds them. Don’t expect lightning fast accelerations, but a twisty road will bring you loads of fun.

The 2017 model of the Subaru BRZ comes with a revised rear suspension and more rigid chassis, which makes the car even better to drive, more direct in curves and noticeably more responsive. The BRZ is all about the driving feel and the 2017 model is the best of the lot so far.

Key features of the Subaru BRZ Jenna reviewed:

  • 17″ wheels
  • LED headlights
  • Boxer engine
  • New dashboard for 2017
  • Smaller-diameter steering wheel
  • Dual climate control
  • 2+2 seating arrangement
  • Folding rear seats
  • 7″ screen
  • 7 airbags
  • Driver’s knee airbag
  • ABS
  • Electronic brakeforce distribution
  • Traction control
  • Stability control

The BRZ sits between the 86 GT and the 86 GTS, being just a bit more expensive than the GT, but offering just a bit less than the GTS, so it might be the best bang for the buck of the three.
