For those who are less aware of the world of cars, the name 86 is far from being due to chance. Indeed, the number 86 refers to a mythical model of the Japanese brand, the Toyota Corolla AE86, at a time when driving pleasure was brought to the fore in car manufacturing. Today, more and more manufacturers are focusing on the design of new models and this is what Toyota has done with its new 2017 Toyota 86.

Driving pleasure and nothing else

Developed in partnership with Subaru, this compact coupe with rear-wheel drive is actually designed for the driver in you.

This small, sporty coupe with its light weight construction handles and performs like few vehicles in its segment. In fact, with a price starting at $31,370, the 86 is a great combination of performance and driving pleasure.

An authentic sports car

With its 2+2 Seating configuration, it can carry four passengers in a pinch, making it a great all around urban sport coupe. It comes with its 4-cylinder boxer engine, rear-wheel drive, dual exhaust and a 6.1-inch touch screen.

The 86 comes in a palette of funky colours, including Crystal Black Silica, Dark Grey Metallic, Lightning Red, and Orange Metallic, you’re not likely to miss it!

Its low-stance, aerodynamic design inspired by the Toyota 2000 GT is characterized by a low profile with smooth lines. Its sleek roof line is punctuated by a shark fin antenna, which gives it a very distinctive look.

Currently, there are two models available for the Toyota 86. To test it, please contact Customer Service at 1 855 398-9598 and book the best time for you.
