2017 Toyota 86

Fans of the recently discontinued Scion FR-S will be pleased to know that the sports coupe is returning under a different name. Until now, the Toyota 86 was essentially the same car as the FR-S but only offered for sale in Japan. It will soon be available on the American market and will feature the style, performance, and fun that drivers came to love about the much-missed FR-S, along with some added perks. In advance of the 2017 Toyota 86 release date this fall, learn what to expect from this sporty little car.


The look of the 2017 Toyota 86 has been updated and now features LED headlights and taillights, as well as a modified front and rear end. This new design is bold to say the least, and it features a lot more accents and flourishes than drivers are used to seeing from Toyota models. If you’re looking for a car that makes a statement anywhere and everywhere it rolls, expect the new Toyota 86 to make that statement loudly.


Total performance output has also been improved. Under the hood, you’ll find a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that produces 205 hp and 158 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers are up by 5 hp and 8 lb-ft over last year’s FR-S. The engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission for greater driver control, and thanks to the small size and finely retuned suspension, the Toyota 86 should deliver a thrilling driving experience on winding roads.


The 2017 Toyota 86 will sport an upscale cabin highlighted by Toyota Grandlux material on the instrument panel and door trim. The plush front seats will be accented by silver contrast stitching, and the new sport steering wheel will incorporate audio and cruise controls. Other features to get excited about include HD radio, Bluetooth connectivity, remote keyless entry, and a remote trunk release.
