2015 Toyota 86 | new car sales price

Revised pricing and features for Toyota’s popular 86 sports car.

Toyota has added more standard features to its entry-level 86 GT coupe, while reducing prices across the GTS range.

The base 86 GT coupe retains its $29,990 pricetag, but now features a reversing camera as standard. The more expensive GTS model received a standard reversing camera in July last year.

The camera also brings with it an upgraded 6.1-inch touchscreen multi-media system, which includes Bluetooth phone and audio and USB and SD card inputs.

Toyota has also reduced the price of the GT automatic by $300 to $32,490.

Prices have also been cut across the GTS range, with the manual now $500 cheaper at $35,990 and the automatic $800 more affordable at $38,490.

These price changes represent a complete back-flip on the pricing revisions made in July last year which saw prices rise by $500 and $800 for the manual and auto, respectively.

Toyota claims the price cuts come courtesey of the reduced import duty taxes brought by the free trade agreement between Australia and Japan introduced late last year.

The full-size spare wheel was removed from the 86 coupe’s option list shortly after its launch in 2012, but can now be added at no extra cost while a tyre repair kit is fitted as standard. 

The mechanical package has not been changed since Toyota revised the steering for better feedback and the suspension to improve the handling of the rear-drive sports car in July last year.

The 86 coupe’s 2.0-litre flat-four engine continues with 147kW/205Nm while combined fuel consumption is listed as 7.1L/100km for the six-speed auto and 7.8L/100km for the manual.

Australia is the third biggest market for the 86 coupe and Toyota is preparing an 86 pro-am racing series that will take part at V8 Supercar events from 2016 onwards.
