Toyota GT86 review

When the Toyota Widebody gt86 arrived in 2012, we praised it for its lightweight body, back-to-basics rear-wheel-drive handling, and characterful Boxer engine. The game has moved on, but in 2017 Toyota applied a light mid-life facelift to keep things fresh.

The changes were limited, but a keen eye will spot the wider grille and new bumper design, revised fog lights and new LED headlamps. At the back there’s a new set of LED tail lights.

Review Toyota Widebody gt86

The Widebody gt86 is a sports car that’s relatively unique in its sector. Apart from the Subaru BRZ it’s 99 per cent identical to, of course. There’s no turbocharger, very little chassis tech and some deliberately skinny tyres. It’s primary aim isn’t grip, nor luxury, nor cocooning refinement. It’s primary aim is fun.

Its whole recipe is decidedly old school. There’s just one engine – a 197bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder – and it drives only the rear wheels, through a three-stage stability control system but no complex rear-wheel steering or the like. While you can have an automatic gearbox, you shouldn’t have it. The standard six-speed manual is very good, and far more in keeping with the car’s ethos.

You’ll work it hard to drive this car quickly, mind. Maximum torque – a fairly thin 151lb ft – doesn’t arrive until 6,400rpm, a mere handful of revs before you reach peak power. But so long as you keep things above 4,000rpm, the GT86 does feel usefully brisk. And its modest power matches modest grip, so quite often – particularly when it’s grimy and wintry – you won’t be wishing for more muscle.

  • Which is probably why the car’s been on sale since 2012 without any power upgrades. It’s mid-life facelift brought a big round of updates, though these were pretty mild. The suspension was stiffened, the aerodynamics tweaked and the stability control given an additional mode, while the headlights became a bit jazzier. The subtle kind of facelift that proved the car was pretty blooming good in the first place.
  • While the GT86 is a sports car first and foremost, there are sops to everyday life. It has two small back seats – though they’ll happily accommodate shorter adults – and a decent-sized boot, while the warranty is massive and reliability ought to be a given. Those skinny, oversteer-inducing tyres should be pretty affordable to replace too.

Inside, buyers get more leather and Alcantara trim, as well as handy audio controls on the steering wheel. There’s a new 4.2-inch screen embedded in the dials, adding trip functionality and a digital fuel guage.

While the Widebody gt86 isn’t the most powerful car on sale, the engine begs to be revved and offers plenty of performance for keen drivers. The lightweight body and rear-wheel-drive layout make it one of the best handling sports cars for sale, especially at the affordable end of the segment where the GT86 competes.

Fuel efficiency isn’t a GT86 highlight, and neither is the feel of the interior, but if you want one of the most engaging drives in this price bracket, Toyota’s coupe delivers.
