One of the newest cars to the game (the other being the Toyota 86) the BRZ offers a new spin on the current trend of great cars for overall performance for the game. One of the biggest highlights with this and the 86 is that it has no dress up, so once you complete story mode the car is practically complete, other than car rankings if that’s important to you. This allows you really focus on both the strengths and weaknesses of the car specifically without being allowed to augment the car, which is handy in a lot of situations. However, what this disallows is the ability to custom the cars looks to give it your own niche to it, which originally is what a lot of people loved about WMMT. In any case, the BRZ offers a great and cheap alternative to some of the better cars in the game.

Top speed in this car is very average as expected for a 2 litre, 4 cylinder boxer engine turbo. It is on the same top speed band as the Evos/WRX cars and struggles to keep the top end in the later gears. As I have previously mentioned in other reviews, top speed isn’t a necessity in battles, but in TA it is moderately important for some courses like Yokohane, Yokohama and Wangan and boost off battles. If those don’t really appeal to you, then top speed is something you can overlook.

The handling on the BRZ is interesting. To me, I feels like it understeers, oversteers then understeers coming out of the turn. However, once you get a fell for how it reacts during the turn it can be plenty of fun! It’s probably not on the same level as FD/RX8 or even the MX5, but it certainly feels very close to how the WRX/EVOs feel, maybe being slightly better. It is very responsive coming out of corners and regaining grip and it does pick up speed very well. My only problem with this car is that it tends to slide out during corners if you don’t hold the steering wheel towards where you want to go, which to some people is counter-intuitive to the their gameplay.

To me, the BRZ feels like it accelerates very well. It picks up speed through the gears quite fast and it accelerates out of corners very quickly too. Being a 6 gear car also helps facilitate this. There’s not too much to say here other than it is very good, perhaps maybe even GTR32 and Evo9 good.

When it comes to battling, the BRZ exhibits great potential to be one of the better cars out in the game for battle. If I had to consider what this car is, I would liken it to the Evo8 of battling, very good overall performance but not often picked (see the comparison and Toyota 86 review). It is the ideal size and weight for battling, being as nimble as an MX-5 and as capable as an Evo9. The only thing that detracts from the experience is the fact you can’t change any of the parts, otherwise this is an amazing car to use for battle!

Pros:
-Good weight and acceleration for battle.
Cons:
-No dress up (Yet).
-Awkward handling
-Slightly small in length which may make it harder to get out ahead in battle.

FINAL WORDS:
The BRZ is a great car no matter how you cut it, however it is my opinion that this car will take a back seat to the Toyota 86 because of the awkward handling style. This doesn’t necessarily mean it is a bad car by any means, it just means that some people will love how it handles, whilst others will hate it. What this car offers is great potential to outshine the overused Evos and give the game some change in variation of cars used overall.

Trivia:
Based on the Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86, the Toyota Celica, and the Toyota Supra.
