What you used to call the Scion FR-S in America and Toyota GT86 elsewhere is now known simply as the Toyota 86. It’s not a big deal, but changing the name of the damn thing so many times does not exactly portrait Toyota as an entity who knows what they’re doing. At any rate, the latest 2017 modelyear 86 has got an official price tag.
With a new name and substantially revised looks, as well as uprated trim levels, the 2017 Toyota 86 is refreshingly different than the model it replaces. But crucially, the power output of the car’s 2.0 liter boxer engine remains the same – it gets a very slight upgrade that is not worth mentioning here – which is weird because the one thing the fans of this car wanted from Toyota was give it more oomph.
So you don’t get more power, but at least the car comes with standard LED front headlamps, daylight running lights, and turn signals, a new fog lamp bezel and revised bumper, rear sports LED tail lamps and more sculpted bumper design with integrated aerodynamic diffuser. Inside you get the 86 logo on the new “Granlux” material on the dash, new seating material with silver stitching and a revised steering wheel with integrated audio controls, and if you live in a hilly neighborhood you’ll be glad to know the car gets standard Hill Start Assist Control (HAC).
As for the pricing, the 2017 Toyota 86 still qualifies as good value for money, even though it is on average about 3 percent more expensive than the last model, with a starting MSRP of $26,255 for the manual and $26,975 for the six-speed automatic.2017 Toyota 86 MSRP Confirmed,
