New for 2019

The 2019 Toyota 86 gets a TRD Special Edition model that comes with red and black two-tone sport seats and steering wheel, a dash with the TRD logo embroidered on it, 18-inch alloy wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer performance tires, Brembo brakes, Sachs dampers, stainless steel exhaust tips, and a unique rear bumper.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Toyota 86 is a rear-drive sports coupe and the twin of the Subaru BRZ. It is available in two trims and a limited-run TRD Special Edition model.

86: The base Toyota 86 comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, full LED headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth upholstery, Bluetooth, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and a rearview camera.

86 GT: Moving up to the GT grade adds a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display, heated front seats, a rear wing, leatherette knee cushions, suede-like inserts on the door panels and dash, a leather-wrapped shifter and hand brake lever, push-button start, LED fog lights, and dual-zone climate control.

86 TRD Special Edition: Based on the GT trim, the TRD Special Edition adds 18-inch alloy wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer tires, Sachs dampers, Brembo brakes, TRD tri-color graphics on the side, a body-colored lip spoiler, a TRD performance exhaust, TRD underbody spoilers, and two-tone red and black sport seats.

Navigation is available as an accessory.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Toyota 86 is powered by a 2.0-liter flat-four with 205 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque (200 hp and 151 lb-ft with the automatic). A six-speed manual gearbox is standard while a six-speed automatic is optional. EPA fuel economy ratings are 21/28 mpg city/highway with the manual and 24/32 mpg with the automatic.

Safety

The 2019 86 has only been tested by NHTSA on the rollover and front impact tests, where it received a five- and four-star rating respectively (out of a possible five stars). The IIHS gave the 2019 model a Good score on all categories except the driver's side front small overlap impact where it received an Acceptable rating (Good is the highest possible score). Active safety features are not available on the 2019 86 at any trim level.

Utility

The 2019 Toyota 86 has a small 6.9-cubic-foot trunk that's expandable via the standard single-piece folding rear seatback.

What We Think

In a 2017 comparison test that also included the Ford Focus RS, Fiat 124 Abarth, BMW M2, Chevrolet Camaro V-6 1LE and Porsche 718 Boxster, the Toyota 86 placed third thanks to its superb handling and approachable limits. However, the 2.0-liter flat-four lacks low-end torque and has a hard time putting power down because of its all-season tires.

The Toyota 86 is one of the purest driving experiences available. In a 2017 First Test of the 860 Edition, we loved the precise shifter, superb body control, razor sharp reflexes and telepathic steering, all of which make the 86 one of the most engaging sports cars available. However, the stiff chassis compromises ride comfort and you will feel every road imperfection. The 86's age shows even more when you get inside the cabin because, which is packed with hard plastics everywhere. The old Scion-based head unit is also slow to respond and lacks smartphone integration.

Opt for the TRD Special Edition and you'll have an 86 that's less tail happy and more planted, as we noted in a 2019 First Drive. The grippier rubber means the 86 goes around a track quicker but you lose the car's playful nature. Additionally, the summer tires make the car feel like it needs more power as you try to avoid its mid-range torque dip.

Cool Fact

The 2.0-liter flat-four used in the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ is a naturally aspirated version of the same engine found in the WRX sports sedan. However, it replaces traditional direct injection with Toyota's D-4S system, which uses both port- and direct injection.
