How do you make every corner epic? By creating a sports car designed from the ground up to put the driver back in control.
The 86’s greatest trick is that it looks like such a simple, straightforward performance coupe, but possesses so much technical detail all at the same time.
The 2.0L boxer engine's naturally balanced four horizontally opposed pistons and square, 86mm x 86mm bore and stroke lie at the heart of the 86 design.
The flat shape of the 16-valve Double Over-head Cam (DOHC) 2.0L engine means it sits low and towards the middle of the car, and helps with the vehicle's overall weight distribution.
The boxer engine's low positioning allows for the vehicle's ultra low 459mm centre of gravity, with a driver's hip point only 400mm above the road's surface. This creates exceptional stability and the kind of instantly responsive, direct handling that competes with the world's leading sport's vehicles.
There’s nothing fussy about the 86’s cockpit. It’s a stripped back, uncluttered place to be, where you’re left to concentrate on the exhilarating task at hand.
That’s not to say sports styling has been added at the expense of comfort. The 86’s fantastic bucket-style seats are supportive for those longer cruises out of town, and interior trim, surfaces and instruments all have a distinct quality feel about them.
Did you know the 86’s steering wheel is the smallest Toyota has ever made for a production car? It has a diameter of just 362mm, giving you a sportier set-up in the cabin.
There are also special thumb rests that optimise grip and contribute to the absolute precision of the 86’s steering system.
Superb aerodynamics also help the vehicle achieve respectable fuel consumption for a sports car of this pedigree (from 8.4L/100kms), which is on a par with many 2.0 litre sedans.
