Comparison Review

With the Toyota 86 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the smart EQ fortwo, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the smart EQ fortwo will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota 86. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The smart EQ fortwo carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota 86.

Since the smart EQ fortwo is much wider than the Toyota 86, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the smart EQ fortwo, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota 86.

The smart EQ fortwo has much less torque than the Toyota 86, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The smart EQ fortwo has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Toyota 86, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the smart EQ fortwo is significantly less powerful than the Toyota 86. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

The smart EQ fortwo has less seating than the Toyota 86, making the Toyota 86 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the smart EQ fortwo than that of the Toyota 86.
