2017 Toyota 86
Restyled front and rear
Long hood. Short rear deck. The classic sports car profile. 86 brings this design to the modern era with each surface sculpted to help give this ride a wind-cheating drag coefficient of just .29 Cd. And best of all, this aggressive style helps optimize overall performance, too. The large chin spoiler and integrated canards help keep the front end planted firmly to the ground for sharpened turn-in and response. The restyled rear diffuser improves airflow and reduces turbulent air exiting from under the car, adding function to its street-ready attitude.
Brighter light. More efficiency. Striking design. A full complement of LED lighting accentuates the cutting-edge style of 86. Up front, LED lighting is used for the high- and low-beam headlights, integrated Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and turn signals, helping to ensure this sports car won't be ignored. In the rear, LED lighting is used for the taillights, brake lights and rear turn signals, further taking 86 to a new level of cool. Now "show 'em your taillights" can take on a whole new meaning.
LED fog lights
Available fog lights seamlessly integrate into the refreshed front bumper of 86. Designed exclusively for 86, these fog lights fit inside the aerodynamic canards, ensuring a perfect fit. Not only do these help provide more light when the weather gets foul, they take the sporty look of 86 to a whole new level.
New fender trim
New vortex generators on the fenders help control turbulent airflow, enhancing the stability of 86. These also work to keep the front end planted firmly to the ground, so you can stay connected to the road.
Chrome-tipped dual exhaust
When you got it, flaunt it. 86 shows off its performance cred with a chrome-tipped dual exhaust. Constructed from high-grade, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, this cat-back exhaust system features mandrel bends for smoother airflow, helping optimize the performance of 86.
This suede-like material shows off the sophisticated side of 86. All-new Granlux trim accents covers key touch-points on the door panels, upper-seat bolsters and dash. Adding an extra bit of style is an embossed "86" logo above the passenger-side glove box.
Sport steering wheel with audio controls
86 features an ergonomic, leather-wrapped steering wheel that feels great in your hands and, thanks to the smaller diameter and quick-ratio steering, feels amazing in the corners. And that's not all-with new integrated audio controls, you get easier access to your music, helping you can stay in control of it all.
Sport seats with silver-like stitching
Deeply bolstered front seats bring comfort to those long drives, and they hold you in place when the roads get twisty. Granlux trim on the upper side bolsters provide extra grip and an added sense of luxury. And silver-like accent stitching further enhances the premium feel of 86.
Folding rear seat
A standard folding rear seat lets you bring your friends, or your gear, along for the ride. With 6.9 cubic feet of space in the trunk, you can fit those gotta-have items you need for a weekend getaway. Folding the rear seat down increases total cargo area, giving you enough space to carry an extra set of wheels and tires for those race-day excursions.
Display audio with Navigation
Available on 86 is the Display Audio with Navigation system. Unique to the Toyota family, this powerful piece of tech features a high-resolution 7-in. touch-screen display. Its navigation functionality with turn-by-turn directions makes it easy to find your way. Better yet, this system also comes standard with the Aha Radio™ app with over 100,000 stations, iPod® connectivity and six speakers, helping power the perfect sound track for every drive.
At the heart of 86 is a potent 2.0-liter flat-four engine. With its horizontally opposed pistons and compact packaging, this engine sits low in the chassis for optimal balance and performance. In manual transmission-equipped cars, this engine has been revised to reduce friction and pumping loss, helping to provide an optimized power curve. It's got some muscle too, with manual transmission cars getting 205 horsepower and 156 lb.-ft. of torque, plus a new red aluminum intake manifold. In the automatic-equipped 86, its Boxer engine pumps out 200 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque.
The 2017 Toyota 86 comes with a close-ratio 6-speed transmission for breathtaking acceleration and impressive fuel economy. The sequential automatic transmission features a manual shift mode, letting you select the gear you want via the gear-select lever or steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. For those who prefer three pedals, the manual transmission gives short, precise throws for a driving experience like no other.
The rear differential of manual transmission-equipped 86 has been revised to incorporate a set of 4.30 gears. Designed for heightened response, this new rear diff helps improve low-end acceleration. This gearing also helps keep 86 in its performance "sweet spot" while in the twisty stuff, making it easier to accelerate out of corners.
Vehicle Stability Control Full-Off Mode
Designed for track days, 86's unique Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) sport tuning allows the driver to shut off all stability assists. When on a racetrack, this Full-Off Mode prevents the VSC from kicking in, putting the driver in full control. This helps expert drivers push the envelope of 86 and extract every last drop of performance.
Automatic transmission-equipped 86s come standard with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Just a simple pull of the lever allows the driver to quickly change gears while keeping both hands on the wheel. This automatic transmission is intelligent, too-it will automatically rev match when downshifting, giving you buttery-smooth gear changes.
Rear-wheel drive Hachi Roku
A global icon, the AE86 Hachi Roku Corolla helped cement Toyota's racing cred. With its light body, rear-wheel drive chassis and nimble handling, the AE86 was a force to be reckoned with on the track and the streets. It inspired generations of enthusiasts and the car remains a legend to this day. Toyota took this AE86 DNA and gave it a modern twist to create our purest sports car yet-the 2017 Toyota 86. It's everything a sports car should be, backed by Toyota's proven technology. And it's how we carry the 86 legend forward to the next generation. Let's fire it up.
Born on the track. Bred for the streets. 86 features a sport-tuned suspension featuring revised spring rates, updated shock components and a new rear sway bar. These work together to help sharpen turns and enhance grip over uneven surfaces, enabling you to carve those corners with surgical precision. And when the drive calls for calmer inputs, like when cruising in the city, this suspension is supple enough to let everyone ride in total comfort.
The body of 86 was engineered to be as light and strong as possible, helping boost efficiency and overall performance. What's more, this unit-body design also puts the engine low to the ground, helping optimize the center of gravity for a truly balanced driving experience.
Intelligent use of high-strength materials, reinforcement of key chassis areas and additional strategically placed spot welds help enhance the body strength of 86. And with this strength comes improved body rigidity, which helps reduce unwanted noise, harshness and vibration. Better yet, this strength also works as a performance enhancer, giving 86 exceptional acceleration, braking and handling capabilities.
Vehicle Stability Control Track Mode
When on a racetrack, holding the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) button for one second engages Track Mode, which helps you push the limits of performance. When in Track Mode, the system allows you to approach the handling limits of 86 before the VSC kicks in, after which the system helps to gently nudge you back on your desired driving line.
Hill Start Assist Control
Every Toyota 86 comes standard with Hill Start Assist Control (HAC). This convenient technology helps to keep the vehicle from rolling backward when switching from brake to accelerator on an incline.
Sport seats with silver-like stitching
SST helps reduce engine power when both the brake and gas pedals are pressed at the same time under certain conditions. The feature doesn't engage if the brake pedal is depressed before the accelerator pedal, allowing time for the driver to move from brake to acceleration. And for those track days, that also means that you can still heel-toe in the manual transmission-equipped 86 without any problems.
Star Safety System™
The 2017 Toyota 86 comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six advanced safety features that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Six airbags come standard on every 86, including a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, front seat-mounted side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
