CarsDirect says if you lease a new 2020 Toyota 86 it will cost you $489 per month on a 36-month lease (California). This gets you a base trim with automatic transmission (MSRP $28,330) and an allowance of 12,000 miles per year. The website says it’s the worst lease in America based on an analysis of over 370 leases for the month of November spanning 29 brands.

For basically the same car, they say you can lease a new 2020 Subaru BRZ for $460 per month which is $126 per month less than the Toyota 86. We found Subaru is offering a 2020 BRZ lease for $399/Month on a 36-month lease now through December 2, 2019. This is based on leasing the BRZ near the Denver, Colorado area.
Is it better to lease or buy?
If you are looking to get a new Toyota 86 or Subaru BRZ, you should consider buying versus leasing. There are no cash incentives when you lease, and the residual values on the 86 and BRZ drop quickly.

According to research by iSeeCars, the Toyota 86 looses -25.2 percent of its value and has a $7,680 difference used over new the first year. Subaru BRZ drops 19.3 percent and there is a $5,504 difference between a slightly used over new. The overall sports car average is -15.8 percent difference between used over new.
Subaru sold 112 BRZ sport coupes in October and 2,088 through October 2019. Toyota delivered 298, 86 models in October and 2,815 two-door coupes in 2019 so far. Both models are down in sales compared with the previous year and they are due for a complete remodel.
Now could be a good time to buy as summer is over and Toyota and Subaru are offering incentives on the sport coupes that are unadvertised. You should also be able to find a few 2019 models the automakers want to move off their lots.
If you must lease, choose the 2020 Subaru BRZ over the 2020 Toyota 86. If you are purchasing a new 86/BRZ you should find attractive incentives on both models.
