The 2022 model year also inaugurates the second generation of the 86 nameplate. Visually, it will be more similar and inspired by the Toyota GR Supra.

The old 2.0-liter flat 4 engine will be swapped with the new 2.4-liter flat-4 unit capable of producing 228 horsepower. As standard, it will be paired to a six-speed manual transmission with the 6-speed automatic unit being optional. Some of the popular choices in the segment that the Toyota 86 will go up against will be the Subaru BRZ, Nissan 370Z, and the Honda Civic Coupe.

We Recommend

As Toyota has not released the price of the 2022 Toyota 86 yet, it is hard for us to recommend a single trim. However, as the Base trim now adds more features and even gets the new 8-inch touchscreen as standard, it is sure to be a more bang for your buck option. 

Price

From the estimates of the previous generation sales chart, the 2022 Toyota 86 is expected to be between the price range of $28,000 to $32,000. Toyota 86 will continue to flaunt the three unique variants namely- Base, GT, and Hakone Edition. This year's price bump will be seen in all trims as the car has received a major overhaul with additional features and a new powertrain. 

Furthermore, each trim will pack enough goodness in the package but an extra penny of $700 could be asked for the automatic transmission. The available GT model is expected to offer extra and advanced features in the portfolio, but there’s no official word from the manufacturer.

Release Date:

Toyota has not revealed the exact official launch date of the 2022 Toyota 86 yet. It is expected to be up for sale in the last quarter of 2021.

2022 Toyota 86 Engine and Performance

Surprisingly, the 2022 Toyota 86 will be arriving with more potent mechanicals and performance enhancements to keep the enthusiasts interested. Under the veil, this Toyota will get the bigger 2.4L flat-4 engine, which will be different from its previous iterations. The engine is obtained from the ship-sister Subaru BRZ and is capable of producing 228 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft of torque. However, the power delivery would be on the linear side and hence you should not expect a significant difference in zero to 60 mph timings. The power from the engine is transferred to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. There will be an optional six-speed automatic transmission that is expected to cost about $700 more.

2022 Toyota 86 Coupe  engine bay

Toyota claims that the newer model can do 0-60 MPH in just 6.1 seconds which is faster than the first-gen model. This can be attributed to its lighter weight and more grunt under the hood. The presence of the D-4S direct fuel injection and port injection system in the 2022 model also improves the throttle response from the previous iteration. The RWD layout and flat-4 engine permit the low center of gravity for enjoyable handling. This keeps the car grounded and enables you to get a good command of every twist and turn. The ride quality shall remain on the harsh side due to the stiff suspension setup.

2022 Toyota 86 Fuel Economy

6.0/10

The estimates of fuel economy are not out for the 2022 model year of the Toyota 86. But slight anticipation can be drawn upon the efficiency of the newer model. The absence of a turbocharger adds a bonus to the fuel efficiency and you can call this sports car economical. The previous-generation Toyota 86, with the 13.2 gallons of fuel tank remains capable of offering EPA ratings of 24 MPG in the city, 34 MPG on the highway, and combined gave 28 MPG.

Due to major changes in the mechanical forefront, these figures are also expected to increase a bit higher for the 2022 model year.

However, Nissan 370Z gets the biggest tank size of 19 gallons that considerably increases its range.

2022 Toyota 86 Interior

6.0/10

Just like the outgoing model, the interiors of the 2022 Toyota 86 will be practical and usable for being a daily driver. It has ideally retained the size and shape of interior dimensions. Toyota has not introduced major changes in the interior portion as it has worked hugely on the hardware front, but even the minimal changes can be observed easily. The major changes include the addition of two large digital displays that give the dashboard a contemporary look. The controls on the steering wheel are not complex and can be easily operated. It gets audio controls that help get easier access to music.

2022 Toyota 86 Coupe front seats

The “86” logo above the passenger-side glove box catches enough attention from the passengers. Even while being a sports car, it offers space for four occupants. The sports bucket seats are standard which provide excellent support and bolstering to the front occupants. These seats get unique red contrast stitching and the Granlux trim adds a sense of luxury to the interior as well. The front row offers a good amount of space to stretch out and feel quite plush. However, the rear row lacks comfort as well as space and is best suited for kids.

The Toyota 86 offers cargo space of 6.9 cubic feet, which is not enormous in size by any means. However, with only 2 people on board, you get a choice of folding rear seats which additionally increases the cargo space. The tech and infotainment will also get leveled up for the upcoming model. It will get the new and larger 8-inch touchscreen unit that offers a newer interface. The 7-inch digital gauge cluster is also offered as standard now and provides navigation-related information right in front of the driver. Features such as Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility will also be offered as standard with the newer model.

2022 Toyota 86 Exterior

8.0/10

The 2022 Toyota 86 depicts the true classic sports car profile and retains the visuals of the original model. It gets a long hood and short rear deck which is a common feature of affordable sports cars. The large chin spoiler and the presence of integrated canards keep the front portion planted to the ground for the chiseled turns. The improvements are made to the overall structure and torsional rigidity as well for better handling.

Unnecessary styling statements have not been incorporated by Toyota and it has kept the minimalistic looking nature of sports cars intact. The car grabs attention with the LED Lighting, extended fenders, and 17-inch split-spoke alloy wheels which accentuate the cutting-edge styling of the Toyota 86. Features such as integrated Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) and turn signal indicators add to the contemporary touch.

2022 Toyota 86 Competition

6.0/10

Toyota 86 vs Nissan 370Z

Both these cars are head-to-head competitors in the market. They both align in the competition with the same price tag, but when it comes to actual comparison the Nissan 370Z leads in the automobile industry with better performance figures. The EPA ratings of Nissan are comparatively less in the segment and behave like a perfect sports car. Thus, the mirror is clear, Toyota 86, or Nissan 370Z. The choice is yours!

 Toyota 86 vs Honda Civic Coupe

The Toyota 86 gives stiff competition to the 2021 Honda Coupe. In terms of performance, it beats the Honda Civic by offering more power and torque figures. Toyota even remains ahead in delivering stellar fuel efficiency. However, the Civic Coupe offers a better interior with a usable second-row and better interior quality. It also looks more purposeful and attractive in terms of design.

Honda Civic Coupe

Toyota 86 vs Subaru BRZ

There is not much to differentiate between the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ as both are based on the same platform. Both even offer the same interior as well as powertrain. Both even offer the same three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. However, the Toyota 86 benefits from the carmaker’s larger and better network of dealerships. But if you want to save some bucks, the Subaru BRZ is the better option as it costs lesser than the Toyota.

2022 Toyota 86 Final Verdict

The 2022 Toyota 86 is a new entrant into the dying breed of rear-drive 2+2 sports coupe. However, it manages to reignite the fire with its redesign and an all-new engine. Toyota has even updated its interior to match with its modern-day rivals. Along with that, it gets additional safety tech that makes it a much safer car now. Thus, the newer model has improved over its predecessor on almost all fronts. However, with the Subaru BRZ offering the same package for a lesser price, it remains to be seen how well the market will embrace its update.
