2023 Subaru BRZ vs. Toyota GR86; All-Weather vs. Snow Tires | Talking Cars #383 1

We just purchased a 2023 Subaru BRZ for the Consumer Reports test fleet, and stacked it up in a head-to-head comparison with our tested Toyota GR86. While both of these cars (created in a partnership between Toyota and Subaru) are identical in many ways, there are a few critical differences in how they perform. Which came out on top? Our experts share which one they'd choose, as well as discuss the important differences between all-weather, all-season, and snow tires.
