Toyota 86 is a car designed with every imaginanble superlative. And yet engineered to be extremely driver-friendly. The 86 does not make a statement.
It is the statement
The body’s ultra-low centre of gravity is distinctive of a true sports car form. The Toyota 86’s sleek silhouette design is further defined by its 2000GT-inspired window profile, with modern, crisp lines and surfaces shaped with hand-formed elegance to create lasting appeal.
The Toyota 86 features a superior drag coefficient of only 0.27, one of the best in the sports car segment. A specially designed lower bumper and aero-stabilising fin improves overall aerodynamic performance. The 86’s pagoda roof also contributes to the vehicle's rear downforce.
These low profile High Intensity Discharge (HID) projector headlamps comes with auto light and auto leveling features, which automatically turns on the headlamps at night, providing convenience and greater visibility in poorly-lit environments.
A set of LED rear combination lamps with a clear-lens configuration completes the Toyota 86’s sporty look. The rear combination lamps also feature aero-stabilising fins that improve the airflow of the vehicle.
The Toyota 86 features distinguished dual 86mm exhaust tips, which remove exhaust fumes from its combustion engine. The vehicle’s aerodynamic, sporty appearance is further enhanced with its rear diffuser, a sleek addition that is extended to the upper part of the bumper.
The Toyota 86 has an ultra-low centre of gravity, with its boxer engine being positioned only 460mm from the ground. It also features an optimised 53:47 front/rear weight distribution by installing the engine (one of its heaviest components) closer to the centre of the vehicle.
The sleek dashboard is designed to maximise driving pleasure by placing the driver in control. With just a glance, you can get a clear reading from the easily-viewable cluster meter. Enjoy optimised driver engagement thanks to the thoughtfully-positioned layout of the controls, as well as a distinguished centerline mark on the dashboard for vehicle position referencing.
The centre-mounted tachometer and shift light create a competition-like atmosphere. The Toyota 86 also has a digital speedometer built into the tachometer, enabling you to check vehicle speed and engine speed simultaneously.
In addition, the MID system provides useful feeds of data in real-time.
In addition, the MID system provides useful feeds of data in real-time. Display includes:
• Odometer and two trip meters
• External temperature
• Average vehicle speed
• Average fuel consumption
• Cruising range
• Elapsed time
Simply carry the electronic key allows you to conveniently lock, unlock and start the car, without removing it from your pocket.
Accelerate and brake in style with these specially designed aluminium sports pedals. These pedals add an elegant finishing touch to the classy interior.
The semi-bucket shape of the seats is designed to prevent elbows from interfering with gearshift operation. Constructed with Alcantara® leather and premium materials, the seatbacks and cushion surfaces provide ample support during G-force acceleration from the front, the back and to the sides.
The Toyota 86’s power was created by combining next-generation D-4S technology with a boxer engine. Displaying smooth acceleration, superior handling and a faithful response to pedal operation, its FR (Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive) configuration gives instant responsiveness. With the adoption of this one-of-its-kind engine, we were able to create a beautiful sports car that responds perfectly to your every command. .
The six-speed manual transmission provides excellent acceleration and is ideal for a sports car. It features a short stroke mechanism along with a triple-cone synchro system, giving you full control of the car while driving with a short shift throw and ergonomic design that can be operated with the flick of the wrist.
The 6-speed automatic transmission comes with two enjoyable driving modes. You can opt for a direct driving experience with the lock-up clutch of the transmission operating from low speeds. Or enjoy sporty manoeuvring with the semi-automatic transmission. It also features a variety of driving modes for added convenience.
• NORMAL MODE: Standard conditions (easy, efficient driving)
• SPORT MODE: Lock-up clutch engages at a lower speed for sharper acceleration response. Shift times minimised.
A TORSEN® LSD (Limited Slip Differential) differential helps maximise traction by allocating power to the drive wheel with the most amount of grip.
The front of the car features light-weight MacPherson strut suspension, which offers superior space efficiency. This provides a direct handling feel and superior control. The rear is equipped with double wishbone suspension. Its high stiffness and rear grip ensure sportiness and stability. The brakes feature good response and precise deceleration control from low to high Gs.
The Sound Creator was designed to channel the engine’s soundtrack into the cabin during a spirited drive. This has been installed to create a linear intake sound in response to accelerator operation.
The Electric Power Steering (EPS) has a quick steering ratio, while the system is rigidly mounted to provide highly communicative, agile response, so you know exactly how much grip is available.
The Toyota 86 employs a next-generation VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) system with an additional feature, VSC SPORT. When selected, it expands the permissible range of lateral acceleration and movement before the system intervenes, allowing the drive to explore the limits of the vehicle’s dynamics without sacrificing stability. The vehicle stability and traction control systems may also be fully disengaged
The Toyota 86 is equipped with 7 SRS airbags (Front, Front Side, Curtain and Driver’s Knee) that provide maximum protection for all occupants. During a collision, these airbags inflate instantly to protect the occupants from head and torso injury.
ABS prevents wheel lock-ups when braking hard on slippery roads while EBD distributes braking power appropriately to the four individual tires to keep the car stable. BA provides the maximum stopping power in emergency braking situations, ensuring you a confident drive throughout.
TRC detects wheel spin on slippery road surfaces and automatically regulates brake force along with engine power to maintain vehicle stability and control.
Manoeuvre in and out of parking spaces easily with the rear parking sensor, which alert you should an unseen obstacle lie in your vehicle’s path.
The Toyota 86’s array of security features ensures peace of mind when you own this sophisticated sports car. Its protective technology includes the immobiliser, siren with back-up battery, and cabin sensor.
