A sports coupé needs style that doesn’t compromise. In the new Toyota GT86, you’ll find an aesthetic that is muscular and aggressive, and which demands attention while commanding the road. With a low profile and long bonnet, this is every inch an old-school coupé, while the striking LED headlights and front grille work alongside distinctive 17-inch machined-face alloy wheels in conveying the no-nonsense attitude of the vehicle.
The cabin refuses to compromise on quality either. The premium finish that accompanies the low slung, carefully sculpted sports seats is all quality materials and effortless charm. In the GT86 Pro upgrade, meanwhile, added luxury comes with Alcantara leather seats and a suede-wrapped dashboard, instrument panel and door accents. Of course, the dashboard arrangement is tailored for optimum control, placing all key functions within easy reach.
While looks and comfort are undeniably important in a modern sports coupé, it is the capability of the engine inside that truly defines a vehicle’s appeal. In this respect, the new GT86 doesn’t disappoint.
