** Awards and Recognition** Complete List for 86/FR-S/BRZ**

People were calling for a compiled list of awards and recognition so here it is. If you have any I have left off please drop them in, I am a huge forum junkie so it will be updated in a timely manner.

WTF U.S. News & Reports?

Interesting how FR-S is #1, Miata is #2, and BR-Z is #3. The twins should be joined at the hip!

And why do they get different ratings in the sub-categories? Does the front bumper, HIDs, Nav, and minor suspension differences knock the BR-Z down below the Miata?

Another reason why I don't trust the US News & Reports College Rankings.

someone heeded my words! thanks man this is awesome

edit: also, i can see why lots of people are getting annoyed w/ this car. if i bought a brand new 2013 mustang and all i heard from the news was a 2013 toyota car, i'd be indignant too.

#1 Car for onlookers to get into a fender-bender for staring at it too long.

This thread is GREAT! Thanks for stating it--I was losing track of all the awards. One or two more...

Vehicle Dynamics International 2012 'Car of the Year' (joint award Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ) and ‘Dynamicist of the Year’ (joint award Tetsuya Tada and Toshio Masuda):
http://www.vehicledynamicsinternatio...p?NewsID=38720

Also, don't know if race wins count, but there's the 2012 24 Hours Nurburgring race where two Toyota GT86s won first place in classes SP3 and V3...

European Car of the Year finalist (Results in March)


Quote:
At the top of the alphabetical list is Ford's Fiesta-based, B-Max MPV. Five doors, good ride and fuel-efficient, award-winning engine choices are some of the reasons it makes the list. Next is the Hyundai i30, known as the Elantra GT Stateside, with either five or three doors, a roomy cabin and a 1.6-liter CRDi engine. The nominating committee commends the handsome hatch for improved exterior aesthetics and a multilink suspension that "shows in ride and handling."

Mercedes gets the next spot with its hot hatch: the turbocharged A-Class, followed by another hatch, the Peugeot 208. The next finalist is from another marque we haven't seen in the States for quite some time the fourth-generation Renault Clio, followed by the Subaru/Toyota dynamic duo of BRZ and the GT86. The last two contenders are the all-new Volkswagen Golf and the svelte Volvo V40.

The European Car of the Year will be announced in early March after the jury has tallied its votes.

I am actually breaking this down right now. It's kind of a tricky metric to be honest.

Some sites have it has the twins, other sites have them differentiated because of the slightly higher price tag on the BRZ and then typically all of your over the pond folks evaluate the GT86. By a quick look at everything I have compiled it tends to leave towards the FRS but I would imagine thats because it was provided cheapest to the most folks.

Eventually I am going to add a couple of links to this with a lot of different break downs/times/features etc. just been busy with Christmas stuff and doing some prototyping for a couple of folks.
