The car formerly known as the Scion FR-S is now the Toyota 86 and is tasked with keeping the brandâ€™s sports-car flame burning in this crossover-crazed world. The 2.0-liter flat-four makes 205 hp when paired to the smooth-shifting six-speed manual. With the optional six-speed automatic, however, power drops to 200 hpâ€"but we doubt youâ€™ll be able to tell. Rear-wheel drive and a balanced chassis provide endless fun on twisty roads. When cruising around town, the racy styling will turn heads. The 86 comes with a close-ratio 6-speed transmission for breathtaking acceleration and impressive fuel economy. The sequential automatic transmission features a manual shift mode, letting you select the gear you want via the gear-select lever or steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. For those who prefer three pedals, the manual transmission gives short, precise throws for a driving experience like no other. The rear differential of manual transmission-equipped 86 has been revised to incorporate a set of 4.30 gears. At the heart of the 86 is a potent 2.0-liter flat-four engine, with its horizontally opposed pistons and compact packaging, this engine sits low in the chassis for optimal balance and performance. Designed for heightened response, this new rear diff helps improve low-end acceleration. This gearing also helps keep 86 in its performance sweet spot while in the twisty stuff, making it easier to accelerate out of corners. Designed for track days, 86â€™s unique Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) sport tuning allows the driver to shut off all stability assists. When on a racetrack, this Full-Off Mode prevents the VSC from kicking in, putting the drive in full control. This helps expert drivers push the envelope of 86 and extract every last drop of performance.
