Toyota 86 Review

The 2017 Toyota 86 has athletic handling and supportive front seats, and it gets better fuel economy than many other sports cars. However, it doesn’t offer a turbocharged engine, and the touch screen that controls most in-vehicle functions is easily washed out by sunlight.

Is the Toyota 86 a Good Car?

The 86 is a good car. Even among sports cars, the 86’s dynamic handling is noteworthy. Its engine has some pep, and when paired with an automatic transmission, it gets better fuel economy than many rivals. Inside, the 86 has a mostly upscale feel, and the comfortable front seats reinforce the notion that this car is built with the driver in mind. Not everything is perfect, however. Unlike many competitors, the 86 doesn’t offer any more-powerful or turbocharged engine choices. The rear seats are a tight squeeze for almost anyone (though the same can be said about many other sports cars), and there’s limited cargo space. Still, as it is with all good cars, the 86’s positives outweigh the negatives in most people’s eyes, and it’s worth a look if you’re shopping for a new sports car.

Should I Buy the Toyota 86?

Drivers looking for a car that’s fun to drive on winding roads and who aren’t too concerned with back-seat or trunk space will find a lot to like in the 86, but it’s not the only sports car that might catch your eye. The Mazda MX-5 Miata gets outstanding fuel economy and is one of the most nimble cars on the road. It’s also a convertible. The Ford Mustang has a range of powerful engine options and a slightly less small back seat, and it is available as a hardtop (fastback) or a convertible. There’s nothing wrong with buying an 86, but if you’re already shopping around, you may as well consider all your options.

How Much Does the Toyota 86 Cost?

At $26,255, the 86 has a higher starting price than many class rivals, including the Mazda Miata and Ford Mustang. However, the 86’s price doesn’t creep too far beyond that base number because there is only one trim and there are no option packages. That means that most other sports cars will be more expensive than the 86 if you opt for the additional features that they generally offer.

Toyota 86 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Toyota 86 or Mazda MX-5 Miata?

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has a lower starting price than the 86, but it also provides outstanding handling agility and an engaging driving experience. The Miata features a four-cylinder engine, and it’s the class leader in fuel economy, earning an estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. The Miata’s cabin features modern styling, a convertible top that is easy to raise and lower, and supportive seats. It also features a user-friendly infotainment system with a screen that’s easily visible. At the end of the day, there are just more reasons to like the Miata than the 86.

Which Is Better: Toyota 86 or Ford Mustang?

The Ford Mustang is available as a coupe or a convertible, and it has a lower starting price than many other sports cars, including the 86. The Mustang delivers strong acceleration with any engine in its lineup. The available turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers the best fuel economy of any Mustang engine, even outpacing the base 86, while also producing more horsepower. The Mustang handles curvy roads with ease, and it offers a performance package designed to provide even sportier handling.

Inside, the Mustang features a blend of classic and modern styling, with quality materials and comfortable front seats. Whether you opt for a coupe or convertible, the Mustang also has more than twice as much trunk space as the 86. The Mustang provides more power and a nicer interior than the 86, which makes it the better option for most sports-car shoppers.

86 Interior

How Many People Does the 86 Seat?

The Toyota 86 seats four. As you may expect in a driver’s car, the 86’s front seats are comfortable, and they provide plenty of support whether you’re on a long drive or hustling down a winding road. Drivers will enjoy its expansive forward visibility as well. The rear seats tell a different story. They’re so small that almost any adult will be uncomfortable, and kids probably won’t like them much either.

86 and Car Seats

The 86 has two full sets of LATCH connectors for installing car seats. It’s not one of the best systems out there; the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the 86’s LATCH system a rating of Marginal (the second-lowest rating) for ease of use. The tether anchors are easy to find, but the lower anchors are set too deep in the seat.

86 Interior Quality

The 2017 Toyota 86 features some high-end materials, though there are also some midgrade surfaces. Overall, the cabin has a nice look and feel to it, and it’s a place you can enjoy spending time.

86 Cargo Space

Because of the undersized rear seats, you may want to just fold them down so you’ll have extra cargo space. In fact, you’ll pretty much have to if you plan to carry more than one or two small bags because the 86 has one of the smallest trunks on the market; it has just 6.9 cubic feet of space, which is only enough room for about four grocery bags. That’s not even enough space for two sets of golf clubs.

86 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The 86 primarily aims to provide an engaging driving experience, so it doesn’t have all that many tech features. However, it still has many of the basics, including an eight-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, and an available navigation system. The hub of all this technology is a 7-inch touch screen. While it has an intuitive interface, you may have a hard time seeing the screen, as it’s easily washed out whenever the sun is shining. On the bright side, there are steering wheel-mounted controls for many audio functions, so you’ll at least have no trouble controlling the radio.

86 Performance

86 Engine: So-So Powertrain

There’s only one engine available in the 86 – a four-cylinder that puts out 200 or 205 horsepower, depending on whether you want the automatic or the manual transmission. That’s plenty of horsepower to move the lightweight 86, but test drivers wish the car had a turbocharger or an extra 25-50 horsepower so it would really feel energetic on the road.

86 Gas Mileage: Better MPG Than Many Rivals

On the bright side, with the automatic transmission the 86 gets better fuel economy than several competitors, earning an estimated 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. With the manual, those numbers drop to 21 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway, which are more in line with most other sports cars.

The 86 is one of the few cars within spitting distance of the Mazda Miata in terms of fuel economy (26/35 mpg city/highway), though the average Miata driver will still save about $100 per year in fuel costs. The 86 will save you about $100 compared to driving a Ford Mustang (18/27 mpg city/highway), but not as much as you’d expect because the 86 requires premium gasoline and the V6 Mustang doesn’t.

86 Ride and Handling: Hug Those Corners

The 86 may not wow you with its power, but it shines if you find a nice stretch of winding road and let loose. The sharp steering and nimble handling let you take turns confidently, even at higher speeds, and there’s ample road grip so you never feel like you’re going to lose control. Ride quality is decent for a sports car too.

86 Reliability

Is the Toyota 86 Reliable?

Like almost every Toyota, the 86 is expected to be a reliable vehicle. It earns a predicted reliability rating of four out of five from J.D. Power and Associates, which is a good rating. It’s also the highest rating in the class, along with the Ford Mustang. The Mazda Miata earns a score of three out of five.

Toyota 86 Warranty

Toyota backs the 2017 86 with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Those are the same warranty terms you’ll find on most sports cars, including the Miata and Mustang.

86 Safety

86 Crash Test Results

The 2017 Toyota 86 has a respectable safety score, and it performs well in most crash tests. It earns a rating of Good (the highest rating) in four out of five tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and a rating of Acceptable (the second-highest rating) in the Small Overlap Front test. The 86 receives a four-star rating in the Front Crash test by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a five-star rating in their Rollover test.

86 Safety Features

The 2017 Toyota 86 offers very few driver assistance features. A rearview camera comes standard, and that’s the whole list. If you want more advanced active safety features like adaptive cruise control or blind spot monitoring, you’ll have to check out class rivals like the Chevrolet Camaro or Dodge Challenger.

Which Toyota 86 Model Is Right for Me?

The 86 has a starting price of $26,255. That’s higher than the base price of several class rivals, including the Ford Mustang and the Mazda MX-5 Miata. However, the 86 does have a narrower price range than most other sports cars, so its high-end price is one of the lowest in the class.

There is only one trim in the 86, and there are no option packages. The only notable available features are the automatic transmission, which adds $325 to the price tag, and an upgraded audio system that includes navigation. Adding the advanced audio system will cost you $900. There are a number of accessories available through Toyota that you can add to your 86, ranging from locking lug nuts to a number of Toyota Racing Development (TRD) accessories such as wheels, suspension springs, and exhaust systems that enhance the car’s performance.

The Final Call

The 2017 Toyota 86 is a solid sports car. It has excellent handling, a driver-focused interior, and comfortable front seats. It also gets good fuel economy if you opt for the automatic transmission. It doesn’t offer any turbocharged engine options, however. In fact, it doesn’t offer any alternatives to the base engine, which is a negative for some buyers. The rear seats and trunk are undersized, though you can say the same about some class rivals, and the 86’s touch-screen infotainment system can be hard to see and use on a sunny day. So while the 86 is a good vehicle, you might be better off considering some other options. The Mazda Miata is just as agile, and it gets better fuel economy. The Ford Mustang has several engine options, including a V6, a turbo-four, and multiple V8s, and it has a back seat and trunk that are larger than the 86’s.
