On the surface, there's very little that the Ford Fiesta ST (http://www.autoblog.com/ford/fiesta+st/) and Toyota GT86 (http://autoblog.com/tag/toyota+gt86/) (or the Scion FR-S (http://www.autoblog.com/scion/fr-s/) that is sold in the US, or the largely similar Subaru BRZ (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/brz/)) share in common. One is a hatchback with power coming from a turbocharged engine routed to the front wheels. The other is a coupe with power coming from a naturally aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine routed to the rear wheels.

Thing is, both of them are reasonably priced performance cars aimed at a similar segment of the automotive marketplace, so a comparison isn't out of the question. It is with all of this in mind that we direct you to the video below (http://www.thesubaruforum.com/2013/06/25/ford-fiesta-st-in-startling-track-battle-against-toyota-gt86/#continued), in which the blokes from Evo pit the two manic little machines against one another on a race track. The result? Well, it can be summed up this way: Fast versus fun.
