New 2018 Toyota 86 in Kirkland

2018 Toyota 86 - Exterior

EXTERIOR DESIGN

Long hood. Short rear deck. The standard in sports car design. With its blend of form and function, 86 flaunts its pedigree from every angle.

FRONT AND REAR

Long hood. Short rear deck. The classic sports car profile. 86 brings this design to the modern era with each surface sculpted to help give this ride a wind-cheating drag coefficient of just .29 Cd. And best of all, this aggressive style helps optimize overall performance, too. The large chin spoiler and integrated canards help keep the front end planted firmly to the ground for sharpened turn-in and response. The rear diffuser improves airflow and reduces turbulent air exiting from under the car, adding function to its street-ready attitude.

LED LIGHTING

Brighter light. More efficiency. Striking design. A full complement of LED lighting accentuates the cutting-edge style of 86. Up front, LED lighting is used for the high- and low-beam headlights, integrated Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and turn signal indicators, helping to ensure this sports car won't be ignored. In the rear, LED lighting is used for the taillights, brake lights and rear turn signal indicators, further taking 86 to a new level of cool. Now "show 'em your taillights" can take on a whole new meaning.

2018 Toyota 86 - Interior

SPORTY INTERIOR

86 shows off its sophisticated side with Granlux trim accents on the door panels, upper-seat bolsters and dash.

GRANLUX TRIM

This suede-like material shows off the sophisticated side of 86. Granlux trim accents covers key touch-points on the door panels, upper-seat bolsters and dash. Adding an extra bit of style is an embossed "86" logo above the passenger-side glove box.

FOLDING REAR SEAT

A standard folding rear seat lets you bring your friends, or your gear, along for the ride. With 6.9 cubic feet of space in the trunk, 16 you can fit those gotta-have items you need for a weekend getaway. Folding the rear seat down increases total cargo area, giving you enough space to carry an extra set of wheels and tires for those race-day excursions.

2018 Toyota 86 - Performance

HANDLING AND BRAKING PERFORMANCE

86’s advanced chassis has been engineered to optimize the center of gravity, plus front and rear weight balance, for optimal performance.

BOXER-FOUR ENGINE

At the heart of 86 is a potent 2.0-liter flat-four engine. With its horizontally opposed pistons and compact packaging, this engine sits low in the chassis for optimal balance and performance. In the manual transmission-equipped 86, this engine reduces friction and pumping loss, helping to provide an optimized power curve. It's got some muscle too, with the manual transmission-equipped 86 getting 205 horsepower and 156 lb.-ft. of torque, plus a red aluminum intake manifold. In the automatic-equipped 86, its Boxer engine pumps out 200 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque.

6-SPEED TRANSMISSION

86 comes with a close-ratio 6-speed transmission for breathtaking acceleration and impressive fuel economy. The sequential automatic transmission features a manual shift mode, letting you select the gear you want via the gear-select lever or steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. For those who prefer three pedals, the manual transmission gives short, precise throws for a driving experience like no other.

REAR DIFFERENTIAL

The rear differential of manual transmission-equipped 86 incorporates a set of 4.30 gears. Designed for heightened response, this rear diff helps improve low-end acceleration. This gearing also helps keep 86 in its performance "sweet spot" while in the twisty stuff, making it easier to accelerate out of corners.

VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL FULL-OFF MODE

Designed for track days, 86's unique Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) 23 sport tuning allows the driver to shut off all stability assists. When on a racetrack, this Full-Off Mode prevents the VSC from kicking in, putting the driver in full control. This helps expert drivers push the envelope of 86 and extract every last drop of performance.

2018 Toyota 86 - Safety

STAR SAFETY SYSTEM

86 comes standard with the Star Safety System, a suite of six advanced safety features that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).

BODY-STRENGTH REINFORCEMENT

Intelligent use of high-strength materials, reinforcement of key chassis areas and additional strategically placed spot welds help enhance the body strength of 86. And with this strength comes improved body rigidity, which helps reduce unwanted noise, harshness and vibration. Better yet, this strength also works as a performance enhancer, giving 86 exceptional acceleration, braking and handling capabilities.

VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL TRACK MODE

When on a racetrack, holding the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) 23 button for one second engages Track Mode, which helps you push the limits of performance. When in Track Mode, the system allows you to approach the handling limits of 86 before the VSC kicks in, after which the system helps to gently nudge you back on your desired driving line.
