Toyota will introduce a refreshed GT86 starting this spring. The Japanese manufacturer tried to upgrade the equipment of its purist sportscar and also revise its pricing scheme on the UK market.
The range-topping Aero model is now running on gloss black 18-inch rims and is available with a hot GT86 Orange paint finish. In line with customer preference, Aero is now exclusively available with six-speed manual transmission. The larger alloys are also newly available as an option on the core GT86 model.
The Primo model, entry-level version, moves on to 16-inch alloys and comes with a £300 lower price tag. An on-going customer offer is available, adding a further £505 saving to deliver an on-the-road price of £22,195. Pricing for other models in the range is unchanged.
Also unchanged is the power underneath the hood, where we have the same normally aspirated 2.0-litre boxer engine. The gasoline unit now complies with Euro 6 emissions standards, with no change to its fuel economy and CO2 performance.
This is not the end of the GT86 surprises: a new special edition model will be joining the range this summer. The 2016 GT86 is available to order now with first deliveries to customers in mid-July.
