For decades, icons like the 2000GT, Sports 800 and AE86 Corolla have cemented Toyota's enthusiast cred, earning accolades on the racetrack and respect on the streets. We took this performance DNA to create our purest sports car yet. Say hello to the 2017 Toyota 86.
For its move to Toyota, the 86 sports car adopts more
aggressive styling with a larger center intake emphasizing the low, wide stance
of the car. The front of the car has a new design with re-configured LED front
headlamps and turn signals, and revised bumper. The rear now sports LED tail
lamps and a new bumper design. The alloy wheels feature a twisted spoke design
and 86 logos have been incorporated into a badge on the front fender, as well
as inside the front headlamps.
The interior also features the 86 logo on the new "Grandluxe" material used on the instrument panel surround. The same material adds a new, soft feel to the door trim. Drivers also will enjoy new seating material with silver stitching and a sporty steering wheel with integrated audio controls and an 86 logo on the center hub.
Enhanced control and agile performance are achieved through revised shock tuning and a spring rate change. On the manual version of the car, additional performance comes from a gear ratio change and a torque increase to 156 lb.-ft, as well as a five-horsepower increase to 205 hp. Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) helps prevent the car from rolling back on steep hills.
It's got the power, gearing and suspension you need to rule your favorite winding road. A new, aggressive front end and LED lighting amp up the style. And once you get inside, the updated dash, steering wheel with audio controls and Granluxe interior accents ensure the driving experience is a premium one. It's how we continue to celebrate the sports car.
