All-new Toyota GR 86 finally arrives

Toyota Motor Philippines officially rolled out its new addition to its Toyota Gazoo Racing lineup — the all-new Toyota GR 86.

After its first local appearance at its racing festival last July and the start of pre-orders announced during “8.6 Day” last 6 August, the GR 86 is now finally available in TMP’s GR Performance dealerships nationwide.

This stunner is an exciting upgrade and a great homage to the revered Toyota 86 line. Now branded with the GR badge that celebrates the marque’s racing spirit, it comes in with greater steering feedback and sharper handling, whether tackling the race track or navigating everyday roads.

It is available in automatic and manual transmission variants, both perfect for that adrenaline-filled driving experience. It features a keyless smart entry and push start systems, giving ease and allowing focus on the robust performance of the vehicle.

Roaring with a hefty 2.4L four-cylinder, horizontally-opposed, DOHC, 16-valve engine, it is a full-blooded sports car, ready to champion the tracks. There is no holding back with its powerful performance at 236hp and 250N-m maximum output and maximum torque — a great step up from its classic predecessor.

Safety-wise, it comes with features like SRS airbags, vehicle stability control, hill-start assist control, and limited slip differential — which are all safety staples in both the A/T and M/T.

Aside from these safety features, the A/T variant also comes with a GR active safety suite, a combination of special safety features which includes pre-collision system, automatic high beam, lane departure alert and dynamic radar cruise control.

In terms of design, it features comfortable leather and suede seats for A/T and all-fabric for M/T. Plus, leather trim continues to the steering wheel, making every turn with suave and flair. Outside, its striking ducktail rear spoiler and piano black outside rearview mirrors are sure head-turners, along with its alloy wheels.

Tagged at P2,328,000 for M/T variant and P2,499,000 for A/T variant, it is available in Ignition Red, Magnetite Gray Metallic, Crystal White Pearl, Ice Silver Metallic, Crystal Black Silica, Bright Blue and Sapphire Blue Pearl.
