TOYOTA 86 POWER PLANT: 2.0-litre direct injected flat four cylinder boxer engine, 147kW at 7000rpm, 205Nm at 6400-6600rpm. RUNNING GEAR: Rear-wheel drive. Six manual or six-speed automatic with ‘‘blipping’’ downshift control. Electric power assisted steering. MacPherson strut front suspension, double wishbone set-up at the rear. HOW BIG: Length 4240mm, width 1775mm, height 1285mm, wheelbase 2570mm. HOW MUCH: Priced from $41,986 to $64,486. WHAT’S GOOD: Good looks, lovely handling capability, punchy engine. WHAT’S NOT: It’s a two-door coupe, so don’t expect too much room in back seats and boot. OUR VERDICT: Toyota risked being perceived as a serious car company producing conventional vehicles and hybrids. Now, the 86 lets Toyota remove its jacket and tie, and have some fun.
