First Drive: The 2022 Toyota GR86 Sports Car Thrills
Redesigned, renamed car delivers more power and sublime handling
Toyota has again partnered with Subaru on an entry-level sports car. The automakers partnered on the Scion FR-S (now known as the Toyota 86) and the Subaru BRZ, which were both launched for the 2013 model year. Those low-slung, four-cylinder coupes were almost identical, with little beyond badges distinguishing them. Both rear-drive cars shined for agility, creating an entertaining driving experience rivaled only by the Mazda MX-5 Miata in that price range.
