The Toyota 86 had been described in very simple terms as a car meant for practicality and fun. It has been kept down to the very least: no luxurious offings, no overzealous grip and so on. This, however, turns out to be the vehicle’s greatest strengthens.
It is a rear-wheel-drive with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that packs just a 197 bhp. The standard transmission is a manual six-speed gearbox, but you can also work it around to have an automatic gearbox. No doubt the six-speed manual should turn out to be just as much fun.
The Toyota 86 will have formidable competitors in the Mazda Miata and Fiat 124 Spider. On the 86, the driver is placed somewhat square to the steering wheel. The pedals are a considerable distance yet very supportive of and comfortable to maneuver.
It is not meant to be an overly spacious car and doesn’t put too much effort into this effect but it is good enough. Each one of 2020 86 will be coming around with a 7.0 touchscreen system attached to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto plus a USB port.
From all aspects, this car is not only lovey but also packed with practical essentials. It is also enviable with great design and an easy-to-handle attitude.
If ever a car became great for keeping things downright simple, the Toyota 86 has won the price. Let’s see how the market responds.
