Limited to just 60 units in Australia, the 2017 Toyota 86 will come with interesting updates.
Based on the top spec GTS manual, the 2017 Toyota 86 limited edition closely resembles the outgoing “Tada” prototype. However, it is the bright Solar Orange metallic paint that makes the new 86 dissimilar from its siblings.
Overall, this limited edition is gifted with some noticeable changes in both exterior and interior.

In the cockpit, the limited 86 is fitted with leather-accented front sports seats with perforated Alcantara inserts and contrasting orange stitching. Also, the cabin is adorned by a suede-like “Grandlux” material, embossed with an orange-colored 86 badging.
The new Toyota 86’s cabin is decidedly more functional than fashionable with standard equipment including a 4.2-inch LCD multifunction driver’s display, a 6.1-inch infotainment system with satellite navigation and Toyota Link2 connected apps, together with dual-zone climate control and keyless entry.
