Update: Pricing for the 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition will start at $30,825.
Since its debut in 2017 as a rebadged version of the now-extinct Scion FR-S, the Toyota 86 has remained mostly unchanged, save for a few special editions. Things will remain the same for the 2020 Toyota 86, as the bulk of its trims will be unchanged, except for one new special edition model.
Visually, most of the 2020 Toyota 86 lineup will remain the same with its retro sports car look that nostalgic buyers love. The only change to the outward appearance of the 2020 Toyota 86 will be its new Hakone Edition model that will pay tribute to the legendary Hakone Turnpike in Japan. The 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition will boast an exclusive green hue, 17-inch twisted-spoke bronze-painted wheels, and a black rear spoiler.
Like the exterior, the bulk of the 2020 Toyota 86’s base interior will remain the same with its bolstered sport seats, simple dash layout, and a smattering of advanced tech. Inside the new Hakone Edition will include black-and-tan Alcantara sport seats, a black armrest with tan accents and black stitching, and a tan “86” logo on the dash. Other updates inside the Hakone Edition will include tan stitching on the steering wheel, parking brake cover and shift boot, and black stitching on the door trim, knee pad and instrument cluster visor.
Under its hood, the entire 2020 Toyota 86 lineup will continue with a 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine producing up to 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. This engine will continue to pair with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic transmission, but the latter will result in a power cut to 200 hp and 151 lb-ft.
In terms of safety, the current Toyota 86 lacks any advanced features, and we expect the same in the 2020 86. In crash tests, the current Toyota 86 received “Good” ratings in all tests except the driver-side small-overlap test, in which it received an “Acceptable” rating. We expect this to all remain the same in the 2020 Toyota 86.
Pricing & Release Date
The 2020 Toyota 86 and its new Hakone Edition will arrive in the fall of 2019.
With no big changes to the bulk of the lineup, we expect only mild price increases relative to the current model’s MSRP range of $28,155 to $33,350 (destination fees included). Depending on where the Hakone Edition falls in the lineup, it could push the top end of the range upward a touch.
