It would be a long journey until the next-gen Toyota 86 & Subaru BRZ arrive

Updated Sep 08, 2020 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

The all-new Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ are said to be launched in 2021.

According to the Japan Times, the all-new variants of the second generation of the Subaru BRZ and the Toyota 86 are planned to be launched in 2021, which is much longer than what was revealed previously.

Apart from a new stronger engine - a 2.4L (from a 2.0L), there hasn't been any revelation about what will be equipped for the new 86 yet. A strong expectation for the upcoming generation is an addition of a turbocharger. However, this seems to be impossible as Mr. Tetsuya Tada - the Chief Engineer for the Supra and Toyota 86 said that doing so will badly affect the balance of the car and need a completely new platform.

The new Toyota 86 will be also equipped with more techs which are likely to include the Toyota Sense safety, driver assistance systems while the new Subaru BRZ will get the Subaru EyeSight. The improvement will offer a better handling capability and the Subaru Global Platform (also seen on the Impreza, XV and Forester) could be an outstanding point of the package.

The Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ have made their first debuts since 2012 in the Philippines and lately received updates in 2016.
