  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Jointly developed with Subaru, the rear-wheel-drive Toyota 86 features a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, teamed with a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Its low curb weight and balanced weight distribution help give it precise handling. In corners, the car turns in promptly, but it can be challenging to control at its limits. The steering is well-weighted, and the ride is slightly more compliant than its Subaru BRZ sibling's. Braking performance is impressive, with very short stopping distances in wet and dry conditions. Inside, the cabin is relatively plain, with well-bolstered sport seats, but getting in and out requires a bit of ducking. The vestigial rear seats are best left for cargo. The standard audio system has a 7-inch touch-screen display. No advanced crash-prevention features are available.

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.
