How does it drive?

Top Gear (UK) - - DRIVES -

It’s very ap­proach­able. There is plenty of grip, and the 2.0-litre 4cyl’s power de­liv­ery is lin­ear. In typ­i­cal MX-5 fash­ion, there’s lots of body roll be­fore any slip oc­curs. That doesn’t mean it’s not fun. It just gives you lots of con­fi­dence. No­tably sharper than its ri­val. Grip falls away quicker than in the MX-5, es­pe­cially in the wet. But the GT86 is just more ex­cit­ing, more ad­dic­tive. Its steer­ing is su­perb and there’s a joy in purely op­er­at­ing its con­trols.
