2019 Toyota 86 – Small Car Power | Lauren Fix Expert Review

2019 Toyota 86 small car power – compared to its Subaru BRZ cousin it has minimal differences. The Toyota 86 competes in a busy compact sports car segment that are all fun to drive. No turbo, no supercharger – just a naturally aspirated engine that handles well on the autocross course or on the road.

Horsepower: 200 to 205 hp
Engine: 2.0 L 4-cylinder
MPG: Up to 24 city / 32 highway
Curb weight: 2,776 to 2,827 lbs
7 exterior colors
Price: $26,655 – $32,420
Vehicle tested: GT $30,949

Pros:
New TRD Special Edition
Tight steering and handling
Comfortable seating considering minimal adjustments
Track mode option

Cons:

Loud interior noise
Needs more standard safety features expected on Toyota products
Small trunk

Competes with:
Fiat 124
Hyundai Veloster
VW GTi
Subaru BRZ
Mini Cooper

86 TRD Special Edition
Brembo 51 brakes, SACHS 50 performance dampers, 18-in. TRD wheels, TRD performance exhaust and an aerodynamic body kit unleash 86 around the track, while turning heads on the streets

The Toyota 86’s humble, naturally aspirated 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission and makes 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic is optional, and that drops output to 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque.
