The 2017 Toyota 86 takes over for the discontinued Scion FR-S as the brand’s entry-level sports coupe. Built in collaboration with Subaru, the 86 has the best of both brands jammed into one tiny, fun package.
The Toyota 86 is an entry-level sports coupe that is meant to be a driver’s car in every way. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder opposed piston engine outputs 205 horsepower – nothing too great here. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic is optional. Of course I enjoyed the manual gear shift in this sporty vehicle.
For the entry-level price of about $26,000 the 2017 Toyota 86 offers great driving and a sharp, simple exterior look.
The Toyota 86 comes in one trim level with some optional equipment available from the factory and a few add-ons available from the dealership.
The 7-inch touchscreen is a good for this small car but can be upgraded by the dealer to become a more useful infotainment system. Factory options include keyless ignition, dual-zone climate control, heated seats, and a more posh upholstery upgrade.
