2018 Toyota 86: Redesign Info, Release Date

  March 29, 2016

Redesign Info

The Toyota 86, the new designation for the Scion FR-S, is reportedly due for its next redesign in 2017.

Although some sources had originally claimed the car would be limited to a single generation, a report from Automotive News has since confirmed that a second generation is indeed in the works. Little is known about Toyota's next sporty coupe, but we think it's reasonable to expect a continued emphasis on driving character.

Now that Toyota has decided to absorb the Scion brand by late 2016, the 86 is set to become a new star in the Toyota lineup. Named after the legendary AE86 Corolla models from the mid 1980s, the car has a fairly strong following among enthusiasts who value handling over raw power figures.

But will the next generation improve on the current model's weak areas, notably interior quality and refinement given its price range? That remains to be seen.

Pricing & Release Date

Official pricing is still a long way off. For reference, the 2016 FR-S starts at $26,100 with destination. It competes with cars like the Ford Mustang (from $25,045 with the V6 and from $26,545 with the available EcoBoost engine) as well as the redesigned Chevrolet Camaro (priced from $26,695).

The next generation Toyota 86 is currently expected to debut sometime in 2017. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
