10th March, 2015
Toyota has added the safety of a reversing camera and the convenience of a
touch-screen display audio system to the GT variants of its top-selling 86 sports car.
The value-added features are worth at least $1,000 but are now included at no extra cost on the GT manual while the GT
auto price has been lowered by $300*.
A full-size spare wheel can now be ordered at no extra cost, giving customers an alternative to the weight-saving
tyre-repair kit which is fitted as standard.
Prices have also been reduced for the GTS grades - the manual by $500* and the automatic by $800* as a result of
recent duty reductions.

As a result of the running changes, the price for the most affordable 86 remains at $29,990* - unchanged from the
popular car's launch price more than two-and-a-half years ago.
The reversing camera image is viewed on the new 6.1-inch touch-screen monitor that doubles as the control centre for
the upgraded audio system. GTS variants already have these features with the addition of satellite navigation.
Other features managed through the 86 audio system include voice recognition and hands-free operation for a mobile
phone, audio streaming, FM radio text, iPod® control, USB input, SD card slot and a CD player.
A neat addition to the boot when the full-size spare is fitted comes in the shape of a urethane cover embossed with
the 86 logo and the model's distinctive T-mesh motif, a design repeated throughout the car in areas such as the grille,
instrument panel and meters.
The 86 is admired due to it being compact, lightweight and affordable - and with balance and handling rated in the
same league as some legendary sports cars.
It has been Australia's best-selling sports car for the past two years with local sales topping 13,000 cars since June
2012 - the third-highest total in the world.
The dynamic abilities and fun-to-drive characteristics of the 86 provide a credible platform for motor sport, leading
Toyota to announce recently the 86 will form the basis of a one-make race series. Known as the Toyota 86 Pro-Am, it will
be an affordable, grassroots motor sport series to be raced exclusively at V8 Supercars events from next year.
Under the banner Toyota Racing Australia, it will be run as a pro-am. Up to five selected professional drivers will
mentor and compete against a larger field of amateur drivers who will have to qualify to get onto the starting grid at
each round. The 86 race cars will be based on the GT manual with key specifications controlled to ensure their
suitability and reliability while keeping costs as low as possible.
The 86 sports car, like all new Toyota vehicles, is covered by Toyota Service Advantage with a capped price of $190
for each of up to four scheduled services in the first three years or 60,000km (conditions apply).
