Current Model
Toyota has again partnered with Subaru for this second-generation, entry-level sports car. Dubbed GR86 this time, the low-slung coupe uses a Subaru-sourced 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with more horsepower and torque than the outgoing model.
The extra verve adds to the driving enjoyment. Handling is superb, proving to be a delight on a track. The intimate cabin features numerous enhancements, such as upgraded seats and infotainment system, that make it more pleasant. Both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are offered. This is an enthusiast-focused car for someone who prizes handling and value above all else. The automatic version uses Subaru's EyeSight Driver Assist Technology for active driver assist systems.

2017 Redesign Year
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.
