Toyota are about to release their new rear-wheel drive sports car, the 86, in Australia. This new model is a collaboration with Subaru.

With prices* beginning as low as $29,990*, there are bound to be many people excited by this new Toyota.

The Toyota 86 will be available in two trim levels, GT and GTS. Both models will have the choice of a manual or automatic transmission.

Powered is provided by a newly developed 2.0-litre flat-four engine that revs freely to 7,450 rpm and has a high compression ratio of 12.5:1. Maximum power of 147 kW and peak torque of 205 Nm will ensure brisk and engaging performance.

Fuel economy is remarkable for a sports car - 7.8 litres/100 km for manual variants - and even better for automatic versions at just 7.1 litres/100 km. CO2 emissions are 164 grammes/km (auto) and 181 grammes/km (manual). Figures are based on the traditional combined cycle testing standards.

The Toyota-designed six-speed manual gearbox offers quick, precise shifting through closely stacked ratios and a tactile "flick-of-the-wrist" short-throw lever. A new six-speed automatic transmission is optional. It features shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel. Extremely fast shifting speed of only 0.2 seconds is a positive aspect of this new transmission.

Toyota 86 pricing*

Version MLP*
86 GT manual $29,990*
86 GT automatic $32,490*
86 GTS manual $35,490*
86 GTS automatic $37,990*

NOTE: * Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
