Facelifted Toyota 86 to come soon

By Faiming_low on 10 Nov 2015 in New model

Attached Image Introduced around 2012, the time has come for the Toyota to give its well received 86 a facelift, which will reportedly be revealed next year. It is likely to get an revised suspension setting, new styling, and maybe, a slight increase in power.

Attached Image According to Carscoops, Tetsuya Tada, the company’s chief engineer said that the updated model will also get a carbon-roofed version for the more hardcore buyers.


Speaking to Australia's Motoring during the recent Tokyo motor show, Tetsuya also ruled out using Subaru's current range of turbocharged engines from the WRX, citing poor fuel consumption and CO2 for use in the future. The lack of an interesting soundtrack from the engine was also a cause for concern for Toyota.

I do not understand why Toyota die die have to look to Subaru for its TC boxer engines. Doesn't Lexus have a 2.0L TC inline4 engine in the NX200t?

My guess is because the Boxer engine has a lower center of gravity. There might be some political issues between the two companies that we don't know too...
