The Toyota 86’s power was created by combining next-generation D-4S technology with a boxer engine. Displaying smooth acceleration, superior handling and a faithful response to pedal operation, its FR (Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive) configuration gives instant responsiveness. With the adoption of this one-of-its-kind engine, we were able to create a beautiful sports car that responds perfectly to your every command.
The six-speed manual transmission provides excellent acceleration and is ideal for a sports car. It features a short stroke mechanism along with a triple-cone synchro system, giving you full control of the car while driving with a short shift throw and ergonomic design that can be operated with the flick of the wrist.
The 6-speed automatic transmission comes with two enjoyable driving modes. You can opt for a direct driving experience with the lock-up clutch of the transmission operating from low speeds. Or enjoy sporty manoeuvring with the semi-automatic transmission. It also features a variety of driving modes for added convenience. NORMAL MODE: Standard conditions (easy, efficient driving)
SPORT MODE: Lock-up clutch engages at a lower speed for sharper acceleration response. Shift times minimised.
A TORSEN® LSD (Limited Slip Differential) differential helps maximise traction by allocating power to the drive wheel with the most amount of grip.
The front of the car features light-weight MacPherson strut suspension, which offers superior space efficiency. This provides a direct handling feel and superior control. The rear is equipped with double wishbone suspension. Its high stiffness and rear grip ensure sportiness and stability. The brakes feature good response and precise deceleration control from low to high Gs.
The Sound Creator was designed to channel the engine’s soundtrack into the cabin during a spirited drive. This has been installed to create a linear intake sound in response to accelerator operation.
The Electric Power Steering (EPS) has a quick steering ratio, while the system is rigidly mounted to provide highly communicative, agile response, so you know exactly how much grip is available.
