    Mk8 Fiesta ST or Subaru BRZ - Please help me choose

    I'm thinking of buying a new car. These are my options:


    Ford Fiesta ST Mk8 (with LSD option)
    Subaru BRZ (automatic transmission)


    I'm 1.84cm tall and around 122kg. Fat for these cars I know
    I'll use it almost every day, mainly on low traffic areas, half nice village roads, half highway (autobahn.) (I make ~25000 km a year)
    Cargo space and fuel consumption is important (... for my wife ... who rules the earth! )
    I love karting and want a car that would give me some feelings like a go-kart does.
    Winters are around 0 to -10 degree Celsius here, and it snows for a month or so, every year.
    I'm not a fan of how FiST looks. I'm in love with Subaru BRZ. It gives me similar feelings when I look at a Ferrari 360 Modena. But I just want choose the one that I would have more fun while driving it.


    It is impossible to have a test drive these cars in where I live. I haven't seen a Fiesta ST yet but sat inside BRZ. Its driving position was really nice, but I would want the steering wheel could be extended more, I like it closer.


    I don't have much experience on RWD cars, except karting. In driving simulations, I like to choose FWD cars more; and drifting is not my thing. However I like making some donuts when it snows.


    I will not modify the car. I want to use it the way it is designed.




    Any thoughts are very appreciated.

    I test drove a Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ when they 1st came out as I wanted one and it was crap. Not fun and underwhelming. Says a lot when a MK7 Fiesta ST with a 1.6L and fwd is a lot more fun than a 2L rwd.
    Basically the 86 had no torque and was overall a bit crap to drive. That was my experience. I wouldn't even look at the 86/BRZ, out of those 2 I'd personally get the Mk8 Fiesta ST.
    The Fiesta will be easier for you to get in and out of and probably have more room.
