2021 Toyota 86 Overview

The Toyota 86 is an entry-level sports car, a field that includes its own twin, the Subaru BRZ, as well as the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, and Mazda MX-5 Miata. As 2021 is the last model year for the current generation 86, there are no changes.

Technically, the 86 has seats for four, but you’ll want to limit backseat occupancy to children or small-statured adults. The 6.9 cubic feet of trunk space is pretty typical for the class, but the seats do fold down, providing just enough space to squeeze a set of tires in the back on the way to the track.

And the track is really where the 86 feels most at home, thanks to its low center-of-gravity and balanced front-rear weight ratio. Power comes from a 2.0-liter horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine delivering 205 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 156 pound-feet of torque at 6,400 rpm with the standard six-speed manual transmission. Going for the optional six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a sport mode loses you 5 hp. While stability control is standard, it can be switched to Track mode or turned off altogether for maximum fun. All 86s are rear-wheel drive (RWD), in keeping with proper sports car tradition.

Just like last year, Toyota offers the 86 in three distinct trims. The Base level comes with 17-inch wheels, sport front seats, faux suede, LED projector-beam headlights, keyless entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a touchscreen infotainment system.

The GT comes with 18-inch alloy wheels (when equipped with the manual transmission), Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires, an underbody aerodynamic panel, LED fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, faux leather, keyless access, and start, additional badging, knee-support cushions, and a matte black rear wing.

Finally, the Hakone Edition builds upon the GT with an adaptive spoiler, special bronze wheels, a unique green interior color, and a unique tan interior color.

Safety-wise, there’s nothing on any version of the 86 apart from a reversing camera. It also hasn’t been tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), but that’s not too unusual for a low-volume sports car.

The 2021 model year is the last for the current Toyota 86, with a new model debuting next year. Still, the current one makes a compelling case for a track toy that can be just as fun on the ride home.
