Jointly developed with Subaru, the rear-wheel-drive Toyota 86 features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, teamed with a choice of a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission. Its low curb weight and optimal weight distribution give it precise handling at its limits. In corners, the car turns in promptly--with almost no body lean--but it can be challenging at its limits. The steering is well-weighted, and the ride is slightly more compliant than its Subaru BRZ sibling's. Inside, the cabin is relatively plain, with well-bolstered sport seats, but the stiff ride and elevated noise can be taxing. The vestigial rear seats are best left for cargo. The standard audio system has a 7-inch touch-screen display.

Toyota 86 2017
Jointly developed with the Subaru BRZ, the rear-wheel-drive 86 (previously named the Scion FR-S) features a 205-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder teamed with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Its mere 2,800-pound curb weight and optimal weight distribution give it super-agile handling and balance at its limits. In corners the car turns in promptly with virtually no body lean. The steering is well weighted, with decent feedback. The 86 has a slightly more compliant ride than the BRZ. Inside, the cabin is relatively plain, with well-bolstered front sport seats, but the stiff ride and elevated noise can be taxing, and the vestigial rear seats are best left for cargo.
