The Toyota GR 86 performs as good as it looks, and it looks really good.
Sometimes I like to get behind the wheel and just drive. I turn off the music, open the windows, and listen to the rumble of the engine as it filters into the cabin. It’s “me” time, and taking it in a fun-to-drive car such as the 2022 Toyota GR 86, in your choice of manual or automatic transmission, soothes the soul.
To be clear: This two door four-seat sports coupe from Toyota, recently redesigned for the next generation, isn’t a family car. Frankly, it probably wouldn’t make a very good road-trip car with just 6.26 cubic-feet of cargo space.
But it scores high points when it comes to looks. The GR 86’s elegant shape and swooping roof makes it right at home next to the Ford Mustang, Nissan 370Z and Mazda Miata, and even the pricier and more sophisticated Toyota Supra. On a fun-to-drive scale, it would make a great daily driver for someone who wants a little zip in her day — without breaking the bank.
Proof? The base price of the GR 86 is $27,700, with the high-end Premium AT starting at $31,800. This does not include Dealership Handling and Processing fees.
