New Toyota 86 revealed at 2016 New York Motor Show

New Toyota 86 revealed at 2016 New York Motor Show

There has been a major identity change for the Toyota GT 86 in the US. Earlier sold as the Scion FR-S, the GT 86 has been reintroduced as the 2017 Toyota 86 at the ongoing New York Motor Show. Featuring design changes, as well as suspension and powertrain upgrades, the 2017 86 will go on sale in the US later this year. 

Design wise, this new model gets a larger center intake emphasising the low, wide stance of the car. The front-end also has re-configured LED headlamps and turn signals, and a revised bumper. The rear now sports LED tail lamps and a new bumper design. The alloy wheels, meanwhile, feature a twisted spoke design and 86 logos have been incorporated into a badge on the front fender, as well as inside the front headlamps.

As far as mechanical bits are concerned, Toyota has revised shock tuning and a spring rate change for the suspension setup for better agility. For cars with a manual gearbox, additional performance comes from a gear ratio change and a slight power increase to 205bhp from around 200bhp earlier. 

The refreshed and renamed Toyota 86 will go on sale later this year in the US and will be sold as an entry-level, rear-wheel drive sports car.
