New performance kit available, navigation standard across the range

Toyota has announced a handful of updates for its 86 sports car, including the availability of a new 'performance kit' package.

The entire 86 range will now include satellite navigation as standard, with all models picking up an updated app-connected infotainment system.

Meanwhile, the new (optional) performance kit adds a handful of previously-exclusive upgrades from the bright orange 86 Limited Edition to the (already appealing) base package. Extras include Brembo brakes, Sachs performance dampers, and anthracite 17-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels.

The pack is available as a cost-option on all versions of the 86, adding $2900 to the base GT (due to the upgrade from 16- to 17-inch wheels) and $2200 to the flagship GTS.

Buyers of the GTS can also specify the performance kit with a new Moon Slate exterior paint, which brings red interior trim highlights and a unique black finish for the 17-inch alloys, forming a special variant that is priced from $39,400 plus on-road costs.

Meanwhile, the 86's powertrain remains the same, a 2.0-litre boxer four developing 152kW (147kW auto) and 212Nm (205Nm auto).

Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or optional six-speed auto transmissions.

Pricing for the revised range starts at $31,440 plus ORCs for the GT manual, and $36,640 plus ORCs for the GTS manual.
