2017 Toyota 86: the Name has Changed but Not the Fun

Published on August 29 2016

There are very few cars out on the road like the 2017 Toyota 86. Known as the Scion FR-S up until recently, the brand new Toyota 86 packs a whole lot of fun for its owner, provided they like a rear-wheel drive lightweight vehicle with an impressive power-to-weight ratio. Small and nimble, the Toyota 86 is for those who like to add a little spice to their daily commute.

The 2017 Toyota 86 Looks a Lot More Expensive Than it Actually is

One thing buyers need to know about the 2017 Toyota 86 is that it attracts a lot of attention out on the road. Those who are less familiar with the automotive industry usually think it’s some sort of exotic car while others who know all about the new 86 know what it’s capable of doing. That means that whenever you stop at a gas station or are simply waiting at a red light, expect to draw a lot of looks, smiles, and thumbs up.

Inside the 2017 Toyota 86, buyers get a sporty cockpit that features sport seats with tremendous amounts of lateral support to keep you firmly in place as you tackle corners at increasingly fast speeds. The center console is easy to use, and your passengers will certainly be impressed by the overall design of the interior.

Starting at just $29,835, the 2017 Toyota 86 comes standard with 17-inch wheels, a limited slip differential, a 6.1-inch center display, aluminum pedals, a twin exhaust, a rearview camera, and a leather steering wheel.

Out on the road, the 2017 Toyota 86 is always poised and in control. You sometimes feel as if the car is an extension of you as it reacts almost instantaneously to your steering inputs, and it seems to always know what you are trying to do.

Always Enough Power in the 2017 Toyota 86

The new Toyota 86 is powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder BOXER engine that delivers 205 horsepower and 158 lb-ft of torque when combined with the six-speed manual gearbox. If you opt for the six-speed automatic transmission with dynamic rev management, you get 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, more than enough to have plenty of fun behind the wheel.

The best part about the 2017 Toyota 86 is that despite the fact that you are not wanting for power, you still get impressive fuel economy as the average posted fuel consumption rating on the highway is only 8.3 liters per 100 kilometers.
