Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Corolla Hatchback than the Subaru BRZ, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru BRZ, drivers may find the Toyota Corolla Hatchback a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Toyota Corolla Hatchback you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Subaru BRZ, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost

The Subaru BRZ will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru BRZ carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Corolla Hatchback.
