Subaru BRZ set to debut at Tokyo Motor Show

Just as Toyota unveiled the much-awaited GT 86, Subaru follows them into the limelight with their GT 86 clone, the Subaru BRZ, which is set to debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.

For all those who did not know, both the Toyota GT 86 and the Subaru BRZ are products of a joint-project between the two Japanese auto giants, the result being the same sports car manufactured and rolled out by both the manufacturers, under their respective badges, different names and ever-so-slight differences. The Subaru BRZ shares everything with the GT 86, except that it somehow stands a tad taller by 15 mm at 1,300 mm and packs slightly more advertised horses with 200 hp on tap from Subaru’s own 2.0-litre boxer engine, which also incorporates Toyota’s direct-injection technology. There appear to be no significant visual differences between the cars too. It also weighs just under 1220 kg.

The Subaru BRZ is expected to go on sale by the middle of next year in the United States, although it remains to be seen whether it will be offered in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and rest of the GCC, alongside its GT 86 sibling from the local market-leader Toyota.

What do you think?



  1. Really? Have we been mis-informed by the media earlier that this would get 100horses more than the GT86?

  2. As a matter of fact this BRZ reminds me of the toyota celica from the 90s… Some resemblance.. Which is beautiful cuz it kind of feels like a modern classic..

    Man, this 86 is giving me sleepless nights..

  3. Subaru has more power than Toyota?? I’m in for Subaru.
    Plus, I recon Al Futtaim will probably sell the GT for a higher price (that’s if its coming to the uae)

  4. Guys, ofcourse the base model will have almost the same specs as the GT-86… Wait for the STI version if you want to see some real power!

  5. Come on Nissan make a new Silvia! or Honda bring back a new s2000 hard top or a Integra Type R

  6. this just the start to bring subaru cope again, and as I know it’s AWD not RWD and later we will see STI version from BRZ which will be more than 300 hp
    generally subaru design the engine and toyota design the body with space for both for body customization

    this is the first time we will see boxter engine inside toyota cars 🙂
