How many cylinders does a Toyota 86 have?

I’m ready to buy my first sports car, and I’m torn between the 86 and the Subaru BRZ. The internet is telling me that both cars use the same engine. Help me understand! How many cylinders does a Toyota 86 have?

The standard 2.0-liter boxer engine has four cylinders on the Toyota 86.
Rather than inline and V-type engines, a boxer engine’s cylinders are horizontally opposed. This style provides a lower center of gravity, which translates to better safety and stability on the road. And yes, both the BRZ and the 86 use the same engine.
The first-gen 86 was originally launched in 2012 and it received top reviews. In addition to being a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 86 was named to the list of 2012 Best Affordable Sports Car by US News.
In 2021, Toyota’s rear-wheel drive sports car was remodeled and rebranded to become the GR86. MSRP for the 2023 GR86 is just under $29,000 and the six-speed manual transmission comes standard.
