Subaru BRZ

The Subaru BRZ is the (nearly) identical twin to the Toyota 86; it's even built on the same production line.

The deal to build the 2+2 two-door sports car sees Subaru supply the chassis and base 2.0-litre flat-four engine infrastructure, while Toyota supplies its fuel injection system and design. The rear-wheel drive coupe is designed to be affordable and entertaining, and is the only Subaru on sale locally that's offered with two-wheel drive. It also set a precedent when it went on sale in 2012, becoming the first Australian-sold car to be offered for sale directly through Subaru Australia's website.

Prices for the BRZ range from $33,990 to $41,894 for the BRZ (base) and BRZ tS.
