Have You Seen the 2017 Toyota 86?

June 23rd, 2017 by

It’s been awhile since Toyota has offered a rear-wheel drive sports car. In fact, it’s never before happened under the Toyota brand! With the Scion brand absorbed into the Toyota lineup, there’s finally a sports car to boast about. Meet the 2017 Toyota 86!

What’s the 2017 Toyota 86 All About?

It’s a fun-to-drive, spirited sports car. It wouldn’t be fair to install a V8 in Toyota’s first sports car because that simply doesn’t fit in with Toyota’s history and vision. Instead, it’s a modest 2.0-liter flat four-cylinder engine. But that’s certainly enough for a thrilling experience behind the wheel.

The Toyota 86 is a driver’s car. It’s meant to give the driver an epiphany on the pavement. With an automatic transmission, the 2017 Toyota 86 has 200 horsepower; with a manual gearbox, it’s upped to 205 hp. For a lightweight, compact car like the 86, it’s going to draw the corners of your mouth into a wide-open grin as you race to its top speed of 134 miles per hour.

It’s a rear-wheel-drive four-seater. Combined with a sport-tuned suspension, handling is nimble and responsive, even at high speeds.

Driver Focused Sports Car

The Toyota 86 is equipped with the tools to keep your car on the road, no matter what funny stuff you’re doing. Vehicle Stability Control is standard equipment, although so is Full Off mode. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters can be found on models with an automatic transmission, keeping the driver’s focus on the road and both hands on the wheel. Deeply-bolstered front seats keep the driver and passenger firmly in place through any maneuvers you perform. And when you’ve lost track of the turns ahead, the available 7-inch Display Audio system with Navigation will keep you ahead of the curves.
