2017 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2016 Subaru BRZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Volt than the Subaru BRZ. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru BRZ, the Chevrolet Volt may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Volt is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru BRZ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Volt will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru BRZ.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Volt is a little wider than the Subaru BRZ, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Chevrolet Volt, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru BRZ.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Volt has much less torque than the Subaru BRZ, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt has a larger turning radius than the Subaru BRZ, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Volt is significantly less powerful than the Subaru BRZ. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Volt offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru BRZ, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Volt comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru BRZ.
