Muscat: The revolutionary new Toyota that has put the 'sport' back into the car, the Toyota 86 is a compact front engine, rear-wheel drive sports car designed to place the driver in control.
It is called the Toyota 86 in tribute to the hugely successful Toyota AE86 — one of the most cherished and loved sports cars having a huge fan following.
The Toyota 86 Sport is an excitingly new grade that offers a sport aero package helping the car stand apart from the rest with a front bumper spoiler, side spoilers, rear bumper spoiler and a large rear spoiler.
And now, during the 'Festival of Joy' promotion, the Toyota 86 Sport is priced even more affordably along with special interest rates, very affordable instalment deals and the best price for used cars. Plus, there's a thrilling grand raffle with the Toyota 86 as the trophy.
The Toyota 86 is a sports car that is lightweight and well-balanced, making it a solid choice for driving enthusiasts. Toyota 86's 2.0-litre, naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine has a horizontally opposed engine and Toyota's cutting edge D-4S injection system that incorporates both direct and port injection.
The D-4S system, partnered with a high compression ratio, results in an impressive 197 horsepower — still achieving impressive fuel economy.
Quick and nimble into and out of corners, with dynamic manoeuvrability and confident handling, the Toyota 86's weight is kept to a minimum by utilising an aluminium hood, a solid roof, and by a trunk design in lieu of a hatchback. The Toyota 86's low weight is matched with a dynamically tuned suspension setup consisting of MacPherson struts up front and a double wishbone system in the rear. Lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels and ventilated disc brakes are on all four corners.
Toyota 86 is adorned with machined alloy wheels, Pagoda styled concave roof, sash-less sports car door and three-spoke leather steering wheel, which also happens to be Toyota's smallest!
