2018 Toyota 86 GT Lifestyle Review

2016 Toyota 86 GTToyota 86 GT- Sportscar revitalised. Its reminiscent of the past simple, yet fun sports cars like the Datsun 240Z. Designed for two occupants only, as all sports cars should, and definitely not for the taller amongst us. Brianna and Alex take a 86 GT for a drive.

Looks and Style

Brianna – The 86 looked like a really cool car, everyone commented about it wherever you went, it was sleek and the grey was a perfect colour for it.

Alex- Looks sleek and sporty, loved the grey colour.

Comfort and Style

Brianna – I wouldn’t say the seats were very comfortable, they were snug. The backseats worked more as a bench for items as no one could sit back there due to the leg room. Inside looked sleek too, race car like, with the cool features and lights on the dash board and the steering wheel was very nice.

Alex- In the passengers seat surprising amount of leg room and the seat was nice and supportive. The glove box area was spacious, low set but very comfortable and sleek.

Technology and Features

Brianna – The car had all the features you would need however for how sleek the car looked I felt it was a let down that the air con was dials and not more upmarket. GPS, bluetooth and radio was all great.

Alex- the sound system was awesome for a little car, the media interface was very easy to use and switch between GPS and music.

Drivability

Brianna – It was a very smooth and easy manual to drive. It had a lot of power and moved around very well. The fuel economy wasn’t too bad however I didn’t enjoy it too much in peak hour traffic. I would say it was a fun car to drive around.

Alex- Unfortunately it was a manual and I wasn’t able to drive this cool car.

Lifestyle compatibility

Brianna – A great car as your second car, as its really on a two person car with not a lot of space if you wanted to go away in it. Long drives wouldn’t be too comfortable. However as a second car its great to have around.

Alex- I think its more of a toy car, prefect for a recreational weekend car. I wouldn’t have it for everyday car.
