Overview

What's New

The 2022 Toyota GR86 (formally known as “86”) returns after a year off with all-new styling, more comfort, improved handling, and increased power.

Choosing Your Toyota 86

There are two trims available, the GR86 and the GR86 Premium, and starting prices range from $28,725 to $31,325.

Engine Choices

The GR86 features a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine that develops 228 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque at 3,700 rpm – significant improvements over the 2020 model. Power is routed through either a six-speed manual or automatic ($1,500) to the rear wheels by way of a limited-slip differential.

The GR86 achieves an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 22 combined which are less than the previous generation’s ratings and in general, not very impressive. The automatic transmission powertrain helps the sports car achieve slightly better ratings of 21, 31, and 25 mpg combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The GR86 stretches to 167.9 inches in length and sits just 51.6 inches tall. That’s about an inch longer than the last generation which puts it about four inches shorter than other two-door rear-wheel-drive sports cars such as the Toyota Supra and the upcoming Nissan Z and about 18 inches longer than a Mazda MX-5 Miata. Inside, the Toyota carries over with similar interior dimensions as before with 37 inches of front headroom and 41.5 inches of legroom. Toyota continues to make no promises of rearseat comfort and even calls the GR86 a 2+2. The GR86 can carry just 6.3 cubic feet of stuff in its trunk and features a folding rear seatback as standard.

Safety Features

The GR86 is essentially void of active safety equipment unless the automatic transmission is selected. Only then does it feature automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and high beam assist. The Premium trim includes blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert regardless of transmission selection.

The GR86 has not yet been rated by IIHS or NHTSA.

Connectivity

Both trims feature an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, remote connected services compatibility, two USB ports, and one aux port. The Premium trim adds two more speakers (for a total of eight) and a more powerful amplifier.

The base GR86 is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels with summer tires, LED daytime running lights, headlights (with auto-leveling), taillights, dual chrome exhaust outlets, heated mirrors, variable-speed windshield wipers, proximity entry, one-touch up/ down windows, dual-zone climate control, a seven-inch digital gauge cluster with powertrain temperature and power curve displays, a leather-wrapped tilt and telescoping steering wheel (automatics include paddle shifters), and bolstered seats with fabric inserts and six-way manual adjustability for the driver’s seat.

2022 Toyota GR86 Premium – MSRP From $31,325

The Premium trim adds matte black 18-inch wheels with premium summer tires, a body-colored duckbill spoiler, adaptive headlights, and heated leather seats with suede inserts.

A track car for the road. The Japanese have long excelled at creating cars for keen drivers, and Toyota’s GR86 follows in the footsteps of the legendary Mazda MX-5 Miata. The 86 is another hunkered-down tail-wagger, aimed at giving even a mediocre driver the sense of being supremely talented. It achieves this through a combination of exceptional responsiveness and satisfying – if ultimately unspectacular – performance.

For 2022, Toyota’s limp two-liter gas engine is dropped in favor of a 2.4-liter flat-4 developed by Subaru, who markets this car in rebadged form as the BRZ. This normally aspirated engine doesn’t create an especially evocative soundtrack, but it’ll send manual models past 60 in just over six seconds; automatic versions lose half a second but still deliver strong performance. Another advantage of this new engine is its torque peak arrives at 3,700 rpm, compared to 6,700 in the old unit. The manual transmission is great on a track, but for everyday useability, the auto is a better choice – in ways you might not expect…

Question marks over safety. If you’re going to drive a low-slung coupe in a world populated by tank-like SUVs, you want to feel safe. Unfortunately, the GR86 hasn’t been crash-tested by either NHTSA or IIHS, and there are no results from Europe or Australia which can shed any light on its safety. Worse, manual models inexplicably miss out on automatic emergency braking, which is fitted as standard on all automatic 86s. We’d therefore have to recommend the auto box, which is less satisfying on a track and somewhat negates the point of buying a hunkered-down driver’s car in the first place.

A cabin you’ll tolerate, not love. Toyota market the GR86 as a four-seater, which is only accurate if two of the four people can count their age on their fingers. No adult would enjoy being squashed into the back of this claustrophobic cabin, and the 6.3 cu ft trunk is inadequate for more than a couple’s weekend hand luggage. Nor is the cabin an especially luxurious place to sit, with matte surfaces and hard plastics dominating. A trio of digital gauges is buried below the infotainment screen, with displays that could have come off a 1980s digital watch.

At least standard equipment is fairly generous, with both 86 models receiving an eight-inch touchscreen with smartphone mirroring. A digital gauge display and limited-slip rear diff are also standard, while Premium models receive leather and Alcantara trim, an uprated stereo, and bigger wheels with high-end Michelin tires.

Toyota 86

Interesting looks, but not a looker. There are hints of other sports cars as you walk around the 86, from the Jaguar F-Type-style headlamps to a rear end which (in the absence of the Premium model’s rather excessive spoiler) has the faintest whiff of Aston Martin to it. Bulbous wheel arches add a sense of purpose, though the side skirts and aforementioned spoiler are more aftermarket than integral. That rakish rear roofline gives a good profile, even though it contributes to the rear seats being an adult-free zone.

Overall, the 86 will cut a dash on your drive or in the office car park. It’s agreeable without being a head-turner, and at least it’s more substantial than Mazda’s MX-5, which feels as if SUVs could drive straight over the top of it. Plus, with base models costing less than $30,000, the 86 offers style on a budget, which is very on-trend here in 2022.

Final thoughts. The GR86 is a likable car, even when you discover that the first part of its name stands for Gazoo Racing, which sounds more like a milkshake than a serious performance vehicle. We could complain about the impractical and plasticky interior or combined fuel economy of just 24 mpg, but such criticisms rather miss the point of this car.

The 86 is aimed at a specific niche – single or cohabiting people who love driving. The punchy new Boxer engine joins superb handling and communicative steering in delivering a delightfully responsive drive, while the 17-inch wheels on base models generate tire-shredding oversteer at fairly manageable speeds. And if you do overcook it, vented disc brakes at all four corners should get you out of trouble. As a beginner’s track car, we can’t think of anything better, but you’ll have to accept a lot of weekday sacrifices before those weekend outings to Laguna Seca make you glad you chose an 86 over a four-door sedan.
