Toyota 86 2020 - 2021 Overview
In a way, the Toyota GT 86 was the spiritual successor to the first-gen Celica of the 70s and Toyota AE86 of the 80s. It created a deep-rooted impression in the country among car enthusiasts in the Philippines.
The Toyota 86 gets aesthetic tweaks featuring new fog lamps, revamped bumper, redesigned tail lights, and a wider grille. Inside this 4-seater sports coupe, it also features a touchscreen head unit with a WiFi-capable smartphone mirror link, and controls mounted in the steering wheels.
Under the hood, the Toyota 86 is powered by a 2.0L naturally aspirated 4-cylinder boxer engine derived from Subaru. It produces 197 horsepower and torque of 205 Newton-meter. Toyota 86 is also equipped with a D4-S fuel injection system from Toyota. The power is delivered to the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters or 6-speed manual transmission.
Toyota GT 86 is a 2-door sports coupe that was initially launched onto the global market in 2012. Various concepts permeated the general public before the Japanese carmaker launched the GT 86. It all commenced with the FT-HS concept before it led to the FT-86. It was then followed by a second FT-86 concept before several performance-oriented variants appeared.
In June 2012, Toyota Motor Philippines brought the 86 in the local market. Since then, this sports coupe has continually built a reliable and excellent reputation for car enthusiasts. The Toyota 86 is available in two variants. Based on the Toyota Philippines’ website, the 86 is currently priced at MSRP Php 2,056,000 for the manual transmission and MSRP Php 2,156,000 for the automatic transmission.
For 2017, the Japanese manufacturer gave the GT 86 a nip and tuck. It now features a more aggressive exterior look brought by its broader grille opening in the front. It comes with LED turn signals, projector headlights, updated bumpers, and brand-new fog lights set. Toyota 86 is low and also features a long hood, pushing the cabin to the back, creating an action-ready stance and fast-pack appeal.
Also present in the rear part of the vehicle are the LED tail lights, and rear reverse light and fog lamp mounted at the underside of the rear diffuser.
The set of 17-inch alloy wheels contributed to the overall look of the sports coupe. The latest version of the GT 86 is currently one of the best-looking sports coupes in the country.
Stepping inside, the GT 86's interior can accommodate four occupants with sports seats in the front and rear seats. All seats are covered with soft leather made of high-quality material.
A combination of red and black color dominates the entire cabin. The seats sit low to the ground and create a driving posture that is very sport-oriented.
The push start button is located in the center console’s bottom left corner, near the shifters. A unit with the size of up to 2-DINs can fit in the infotainment slot. The gauge cluster features analog gauges and an LCD screen, which displays a G-force-meter, lap timer, and/or a power delivery chart.
Technology & Safety feature
Aside from fancy sport seats, the interior is also equipped with a set of features that will keep passengers safe and entertained throughout the entire ride. It includes a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with AUX, USB, and WiFi connectivity. It also comes with cruise control, hill start assist, keyless entry, and automatic climate control.

Platform & Chassis
Toyota GT 86 is developed via the collaboration of two Japanese automaker giants – Toyota and Subaru. Toyota named it 86, while Subaru goes with the BRZ nameplate. The latest 86 rides on a heavily modified Subaru Impreza platform. Meaning to say, both models are basically the same with only a few aesthetic modifications in the interior and exterior.

Superb road performance can be expected with the 86 model because of the combined power of 2.0L normally-aspirated boxer engine from Subaru and the reliable and top-performing D4-S fuel injection system from Toyota.
The Toyota 86 can create a maximum output of 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm, and maximum torque of 205 Newton-meter at 6,600 rpm.
