With a combination of spirited Scion styling and Toyota Q-D-R (Quality-Durability-Reliability), the former Scion FR-S will debut as the reinvigorated 2017 Toyota 86 at this week’s New York International Auto Show.
The new Toyota 86 will go on sale at all Toyota dealerships this fall.
For the 2017 model year, the Toyota 86 will add LED front headlamps and turn signals, LED rear taillights, and fender garnish design, and new bumpers on the front and rear.
Additionally, the alloy wheels feature a new design. On the inside, the 86 will sport new materials on the seats, door armrest and door trim, as well as on the instrument panel surround.
Enhanced control and agile performance are achieved through revised shock tuning and a spring rate change. On the manual version of the car, there is a gear ratio change for improved acceleration, as well as a five-horsepower increase.
Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) helps prevent the car from rolling back on steep hills.
