The 2017 Toyota 86 is one of the most exciting additions to the Toyota lineup to appear in a long time. This sport coupe immediately stands out thanks to its sleek style and athletic performance behind the wheel. And in spite of having a very upscale feel overall, it is priced far less than other comparable sport models. If you are looking for an exciting new car to drive, the 2017 Toyota 86 delivers on all fronts.
Under the hood is a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that produces up to 205 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. That is enough power to rocket you from 0-60 mph in under 7 seconds. Power travels to the rear wheels from either a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic with paddle shifters, and rev-matched downshifts.
Performance is not all that makes this car a joy to drive. It also comes equipped with a generous list of standard features and a few appealing options. Exterior highlights include stylish 17-inch alloy wheels, LED head and taillights, and a limited-slip rear differential for greater agility. Inside the cabin, you will find a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. Standard technologies include a seven-inch touchscreen display with a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and voice controls, along with an eight-speaker stereo that fills the cabin with rich audio. Optional features include keyless entry, dual-zone climate controls, nicer upholstery, and heated seats.
