2017 Toyota 86 marks the end of the road for the Scion FR-S
Toyota has unveiled the 2017 86 at the New York Auto Show.
Essentially a facelifted and renamed version of the Scion FR-S, the Toyota 86 features a new front bumper, restyled headlights, and new front fender vents. The car has also been equipped with a modestly revised rear bumper and new LED taillights. Rounding out the changes are restyled alloy wheels and new "86" badging.
The interior carries over largely untouched but designers added new seat upholstery with silver contrast stitching. Drivers will also find a new steering with integrated audio controls and "Grandlux" upholstery on the dashboard and door panels.
Power is provided by a familiar 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. However, manual variants receive a bit of a performance boost as the engine now produces 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque.
On the topic of performance, engineers fine-tuned the shock absorbers and spring rates. The changes sound relatively minor but the company says drivers can expect "enhanced control" and more agile handling.
The 2017 Toyota 86 will go on sale this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
