2015 Toyota 86 Review

it's Hard To Believe It's Been Three Years Since The Toyota 86 First Launched In Australia With A Sub 30k Price Tag And The Promise Of Proper Rear-wheel Drive Dynamics Initially A Consistent Top Seller In The Local Sports Car Bracket That Same Success Has Not Been Matched Globally And. So, Far This Year Sales Are Actually Down More Than 30 Percent.

So, Why Has The Love Affair Worn Off Was It All Just Hype Since Its Launch The Toyota Eight-six Has Been Offered In Two Trims An Entry-level GT And This The Flagship GTS Priced From Twenty Nine Thousand Nine Ninety The Same Price As A Front-wheel Drive Care Pro Cee'd GT And Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo The GTS Starts At Thirty Five Thousand Nine Ninety Owners Can Opt In A Six-speed Automatic Transmission For Two And A Half Grand Or Go With The Standard 6-speed Manual As We Have Right Here Standard Kit On The Eight-six Includes Cruise Control A Reversing Camera And A Six Speaker Stereo With A 6.1 Inch Touch Screen Featuring Bluetooth Connectivity And Audio Streaming The Top Spec GTS Also Adds Satellite Navigation Part Leather Heated Seats Dual Zone Climate Control And A Push, Button Start Putting Up The Outside Of Fog Lights HID Headlights These 17-inch Alloy Wheels A Rear Spoiler And Dual Chrome Exhaust Regardless Of Trim All Eight Six Variants Get A 3 Year 100,000 Kilometre Warranty As Well As Cap Price Servicing For The First Three Years Or 60,000 Kilometers Inside You Get Basic, But Clear Climate Controls You Get Some Faux Carbon-fiber Touches This Frameless Rearview Mirror And For The Driver A Very Cool White Faced Central Taco These Seats Are Also Pretty Awesome The Central Fabric Section Really Does Keep You And Your Passenger Right Where You Need To Be Rather Than Sliding All Over The Place Like You Find In Full Leather Seats Back Here Is Well It's A Little Bit Snug, But. I'm Six Foot And. I've Still Got Some Headroom Obviously Reserved For Only Two Passengers The Back Seats Are Probably Best Kept For Storing Bags And Maybe For Emergencies Only Tucked Into This Cute Little Rear End You Get A Two Hundred And Eighteen Litre Boot Now That Can Actually Be Expanded By Simply Dropping The One-piece Rear Seat Backrest Forward Giving You Enough Space For Four Full-sized Wheels Or Two Golf Bags Just Pretty Impressive Annoyingly Though Only Three Months After The Car Launched Toyota Decided To Replace Its Full-size Spare Tire With A Puncture Repair Kit Something That Hasn't Happened On Its Twin The Subaru BRZ Now To The Source Of Debate On Internet Forums The World Over The Engine Co-developed With Subaru The Eight-six Gets A Two Liter Boxer Spitting Out A Seemingly Mild 147 Kilowatts And 205 Newton Meters For Context That's Little More Power Than Is Offered Up By A Mazda 3 SP 25 And The Same Torque Output As A Base Model Renault Megane Disappointingly For Enthusiasts To Both The Eight-six And The BRZ Continue To Be Naturally Aspirated Which Means There Is No Turbo Charging And No Super Charging Of Any Kind Speaking Of Performance Let's Get Out Of The City And Into The Hills On The Road The Eight-six Feels Small And Light And Well That's Because It Is It Weighs A Little Over 1,200 Kilos, But It Measures In Slightly Shorter Than A Newsome Pulsar Hatch Now Fuel Consumption Of 7.8 Liters Per Hundred Kilometers Isn't Great, But That Does Drop To 7.1, If You Go For The 6-speed Automatic Transmission, But This Is An 86 People Don't Buy This Car For Fuel Consumptions Either They Buy An Eight-six Because It's Fun To Drive Isn't It You're Out Of Here The First Thing You Notice Is Just How Good This Steering Is It Is A Little Bit Heavy, But It's Consistent And Super Sharp The Brakes Too Aren't Bad They Are A Little Bit Bigger On The GTS Then On The GT And You Also Get Ventilated Discs All Round The Pedal Is Not The Most Responsive Around Town, But Once You Get Out Into The Twisties And Give It A Little Bit More Pressure The Stopping Power Is Still More Than Reasonable The Chassis Is An Absolute Perler The Car Sits Pretty Flat And Although It Does Actually Have Some Roll Its Compliance And Comfort Level Is Actually Quite Good The Ride Itself Around Town And Out Here Is More Than Livable Ok It's Time Let's Talk About The Engine Let's Talk About The Noise Specifically Yes It's Piped Into The Cabin Via Some Plastic Piping And Yes It Does Sound A Little Flat And Tinny, But The Noise Does Let You Know What The Rebs Are Doing Which Is Very Helpful And Helps With The Communication Between Car And Driver There's Also Reasonable Talk Between Three And Four Thousand Rpm Around Town, If You Have The Chance To Hunt Down That 7400 Rpm Redline Especially Out Here And There's Plenty More Enjoyment To Be Had While The Engine Performance Itself Might Not Be Quite What You'd Expect In Your Normal Sports Car The Throttle Response Is Absolutely Sublime Every Little Input Is Just Immediate And Whether It's On Or Off The Reaction Is The Same What That Means Is That You Can Do Little Cheeky Lifts Of The Throttle To Get The Weight Onto The Front Wheels And Even Boost That Agility Even Further And You Know What The More You Drive It Like This The More It Makes Sense.

I Don't Think It Ever Was Hard With This Car. I Think It's Good And. I Think It Is Properly Good Fun And Surely That's What Matters Most It's Hard To Know Why Australians Have Started To Fall Out Of Love With The Poor Little Toyota 86 It's The Only New Rear-wheel Drive Sports Car You Can Buy For The Money It's Smartly Packaged It's One Hell Of An Entertaining Drive Perhaps Like A Lot Of Love Affairs The Thrill Is Just Simply Worn Off And, If That's The Case That's A Shame Stay Tuned For An Upcoming Track Test On The Toyota 86 And In The Meantime Remember You Can Subscribe To Cara Vice Commandant Au For All The Latest News Reviews And Comparisons Of What Could Very Well Be Your Next New Car.
