Toyota and its partner Subaru in Japan demonstrated the new 86 for the first time in Japan. Although the two people use different wrapping paper, 86 is again exactly the same as BRZ. Behind the Toyota Gazoo Racing grille is a 2.4-liter flat-four engine without a turbocharger, which can produce 230 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. We will have to wait for US-spec units to see if they are indeed a few horses higher than the BRZ’s 228 hp, or if the kilowatt/horsepower conversion is sufficient. Toyota told the roadshow that specific information about the United States will be provided in the next few weeks. Like the BRZ, the 2.4-liter engine replaced the 2.0-liter engine, adding more than 20 horsepower and nearly 30 pound-feet of power.
The driver will once again be able to choose between a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, and both, like the BRZ, will only send power to the rear tires with a power of 215/40. A set of 18-inch wheels is standard. With the help of a manual gearbox, it takes 6.3 seconds to go from 0 mph to 62 mph-1 second faster than the upcoming 86 mph-and only 23 pounds of weight increase when comparing the new car with the old car.
Roadshow learned that 86 is indeedIn order to make the difference between the new coupe and the Subaru BRZ bigger, and in terms of sound, the engineer’s goal is to create a more sporty car. The company said that Toyota and Subaru engaged in “friendly competition” when the two teams developed cars, while the former was trying to make something new. The positioning of the current 86 and BRZ is not completely different, the Subaru version makes the two more “luxury”, but it sounds like Toyota is working hard at least on paper to improve this feeling. The automaker promised that its company cousin will have a “distinct” driving experience in order to achieve achievable performance goals.
The body stiffness is 50% higher than that of the old 86, and aluminum used in the roof panel helps keep the center of gravity low. Aluminum has also entered the fenders to help reduce curb weight. The new seats and improved muffler also help minimize weight gain.At the same time, functional aerodynamics components fromMotorsport. The additional weight that appears may come from the fact that the new 86 bundled Subaru’s EyeSight driver assistance technology kit. The entire kit and caboodle are carried with you this time.
Speaking of the kit, the cabin is still the area where the driver is concentrated, and like the BRZ, it gets a new 7-inch display. Toyota said that when the driver climbs into the car, it will draw inspiration from the car’s boxer engine and create a beautiful animation sequence. The material of the upcoming 86 is quite good in price. I hope that the 2022 86 can maintain this price.
ThisIt definitely embodies the fun of “slow driving” driving experience, and we are very happy to catch up with the development of this new model. So far, the evolutionary changes seem to carry 2022 86, but you know what they are talking about, please don’t solve the unresolved problems. This new car will be on sale in Japan this fall, and it should not be too far behind when it is launched in the US
