What Is the 2020 Toyota 86?
The Toyota 86 (previously known as the Scion FR-S before Toyota discontinued the Scion brand) is a fun-to-drive four-seat sports coupe. It has rear-wheel drive, and power comes from a 205-horsepower, 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. The four-cylinder teams with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available six-speed automatic (engine output drops to 200 hp with the automatic). Competitors include other small sports cars like the related Subaru BRZ, Mazda MX-5 Miata and Hyundai Veloster.

What’s New on the 2020 Toyota 86?
A new Hakone Edition joins the lineup for 2020. The Hakone Edition is based on the GT trim level (
 the trim level denotes which equipment and features are included as standard) and features a unique tan and black interior, Hakone green exterior paint, 17-inch bronze wheels and a black spoiler.

What Features in the 2020 Toyota 86 Are Most Important?
The standard manual transmission is a joy to shift, and manual-equipped cars have a little extra power to boot. All models come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Bluetooth streaming audio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. An optional TRD Handling Package includes Sachs shock absorbers, Brembo brakes, an underbody aerodynamic panel and 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires.

Should I Buy the 2020 Toyota 86?
First offered for the 2013 model year, this sports car that was co-developed by Toyota and Subaru is showing its age. It’s also modestly powered, but it and the related BRZ still deliver a rewarding, engaging driving experience. You just need to prefer handling finesse to brute power to truly enjoy it.
