Is there anything interesting about its design?
To the casual observer, the 86's latest update, particularly in base GT guise, looks like a simple head and tail-light job with a few extra kilowatts tickled from its 2.0-litre boxer engine.
Anyone longing for a turbocharged version or a stripped-out track special should probably stop holding their breath now, because they'll need oxygen to comprehend the surprisingly comprehensive list of tweaks that have been made.
There are indeed new head and tail-lights, with the former getting the same tinted treatment as the GTS so it no longer looks like the poor cousin in the 86 range. Both front and rear lights are now all-LED with a more high-tech look that should help stem the fitment of eBay alternatives.
The front and rear bumpers are also new, with a slightly more organic look to align the 86 with Toyota's more recent designs, but it's a shame to see the GT make do with the same bland 16-inch alloys it's worn since 2012.
One rim that has changed on both versions is the steering wheel, with a smaller 362mm unit boasting the smallest diameter ever used in a Toyota. The GTS finally gets steering wheel controls for the audio and trip computer, but the GT unfortunately still does without.
The tachometer on both versions has been twisted anti-clockwise for glancing legibility so that the 7000rpm power peak is now at the 12 o'clock position, with 0rpm at six o'clock.
Under the skin, the rear of the 86's structure has been reinforced with extra spot welds, and a thicker rear swaybar is paired with revised spring and damper tuning all round.
