Subaru brx vs scion fr-s

Sat in the subaru brz and there isn't much space inside. I'm aware that the space is the same as the scion frs though. As far as I know the Subaru brz is slightly more expensive and has more options than the frs. However it's really frustrating how much nicer the Toyota gt 86 is than both of them. Does anyone know why the hell it's not sold in NA? But imo the brz interior is very nice!

Funny you mentioned the Acura Rsx, it's one of my all time favs haha. How are you planning to drive in the snow with a rwd btw?

the brx has more stock stuff you can get changed like navy and etc.the frs the front is different and there are some cool body kits out for it. id go with Toyota

Wouldn't make a lick of difference because they are both rear wheel drive.Originally Posted by carpee

I dunno why I was under the impression it was all wheel drive.Originally Posted by supermanjow
I thought that's why Subaru brought it out.

The sub is all wheel. The scion is not. Scion is rear wheelOriginally Posted by carpee
Going tomorrow to drive both.

suby all day, man i miss my wrx. the brz is just awesome, only thing that woulda made it better was if it was a 2.0 turbo but cant complain considering it has one of the lsd's. that thing can drift like a horse runnin on an icey road with a glue truck behind him

Neither is all wheel drive. I don't know where you're getting your info. I've watched this car since its inception. When I found out they got rid of the AWD on it I immediately lost interest. Subaru actually worked in conjunction with Toyota to produce the Scion. It is built on the same platform and is essentially the same car. I've read multiple comparison/test drive articles that essentially boiled down to the Scion is more stylish and costs considerably less. So you get more bang for your buck with the Scion.

Looks like I read the carandriver article they said all wheel drive and thy were talking about past cars. You are right. My apologiesOriginally Posted by supermanjow
Makes me pretty upset.
What's the safety comparison ect.
I can deal w rear wheel. Rather it be all wheel. But I can always look at the wrx

I seriously don't know **** about cars so that's why this thread was born. Idk what you said means anything to me. Lol. It's like spanishOriginally Posted by hvactech

I haven't test driven one yet, but their AWD is so good that its hard to break from it. I still really like it, and RWD makes sense for it. But for those of us in northern climates that love and depend upon their AWD in the winter RWD puts a little damper on it. I would like to see a winter driving review of its traction control. I know on the Chrysler 300 Car and Driver rated their RWD and traction control ahead of many FWD cars. If their TC is pretty good it's not as big of a deal under fairly normal winter driving conditions.

I wanna know what's built tougher.Originally Posted by mstep
Also since I hardly know anything I can't figure out what's better to have.
Option wise sub comes with more but if they are the exact car just different names I have to figure out what drives better and looks nicer
I has a Subaru svx I loved it
11-15-2012, 07:28 AM
Now even though they are essentially the same car, I'm going to go out on a limb and say the suby has better QAQC and build quality. As for snow tires, any car handles better with snow tires in the winter. But in a heads up match between FWD and RWD without traction control I'd have a hard time putting my money on RWD.

I was really interesting in getting the scion frs however I don't fit inside. Instead I'm now looking at used evo's and sti's no older then 2008. Does anyone have any advice or experience with any of these cars? Thanks!

I've heard expensive repairs.Originally Posted by Philshred
I'm kinda looking in the same market. I want an sti.
11-15-2012, 12:22 PM
Yeah the sti has a much nicer interior imo with the red stitching and everything how ever it's not as roomy inside. I was also told that you only get a 6 month warranty when you buy the sti compared to the evo which is much better."salesman at mitsubishi dealership"Originally Posted by carpee
11-15-2012, 12:39 PM
Both awesome cars. Depending what you are looking to get out of the car, and what you plan to do to/with it, would dictate which I would recommend.

daily driver and 'some' fun mostly in the winter...Originally Posted by Frank Reynolds

Haha thanks for the info. I was actually quite shocked when he said that. Sadly enough I have to pick between the two the evo just due to the fact that it's the only one I fit in. Nonetheless I really like the evo even though the interior is a bit bland but I won't mind making some changes to improve itOriginally Posted by Frank Reynolds

Hey thanks for letting me know! So far the Evo i my number 1 pick Its been one of my favs for a very long time. I blame The Fast and the Furious hahaOriginally Posted by mstep
