Andrew Newton Preview:

Toyota has sold well over 40 million Corollas over the last five decades, making it the best-selling car ever. The Corolla has been successful largely because it’s such a great all-rou...

Power Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"RWD delivery, 50/50 front rear weight distribution, and low mounted engine combined make the BRZ feel more responsive. "
Handling Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"See above. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"The BRZ is designed as its own platform, with classic sports car styling (longish hood, beefy rear fenders, no-nonsense interior). The Si is nice, but because its shared with its lesser Civic stablemates, feels less special as a sports car than the BRZ. "
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"The BRZ Limited offers leather + suede look seats, well bolstered. While the Sis seats are OK, no leather option did not sit well with me (pun intended). "
Back Seats Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD worse.
"The Si has usable back seats; the BRZs are for packages or people you dislike only. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD worse.
"Si comes in hatch variant with offers greater cargo options vs. BRZ."
Family Car Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD worse.
"Functional rear seats and great platform overall. "
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"I did buy the BRZ over the Si because it felt more special since it was designed as an affordable sports car, period. No shared platform with lesser models. Also, its reliability rating in Consumer Reports was superior to the Hondas. "

Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Toyota Camry SE worse.
"definitely more room in the trunk which is great if you have a family and your kids play sports or if you like taking road trips. but i would rather take a long road trip in the camry. "
Family Car Ranked 2018 Toyota Camry SE better.
"feels like a lot more upgrades are available on the Camry thats not available on the civic"
