Best RWD Sports Car Under $30K

by Houner from Coronado, CA on Mon May 29 2017

The 2017 Toyota 86 is a very tightly balanced sports car that is very fun to drive. The automatic is both very convenient and shiftable both with the stick or paddles. Corners great, drifts well and has enough power to be very competitive in autocross events. Great for daily driver and weekend track and road trips. Trunk is big enough for 2'full size golf bags and suitcases.

Reliable, Great Design, Great Value

by EricJ from Burlington, ON on Sat Jul 22 2017

I am very happy with this car. The Toyota 86 offers exceptional quality and design for the money. It would be nice if the engine was a bit more powerful, but it's not bad. I'm 21 and the insurance on this car is not bad at all for it being a 2-door sports car. Car looks great in Oceanic blue exterior with black interior. The interior is on the more basic side, not offering a lot of extra features, but that makes it simple to use too.

it is the smoothest!

by Grumps from Mill Creek WA. on Tue Aug 01 2017

It isn't the fanciest, the fastest or the most expensive but it is by far the best car to drive I've owned. And I've owned many.i didn't listen to all the kiddies and bought the automatic. Glad I did. Traffic is not good for stick shifts and the auto gets better gas mileage.

Best bang for your buck sports car!

by JShawn from McKinney TX on Wed Mar 29 2017

This car is more than fun to drive around on the streets. The bolstered bucket racing style seats give you the feel of a sports car the second you sit down. The sporty exhaust and manual transmission make your boring drive to work rather exciting! I always look forward to driving this car. I have to make up excuses to go places just so I can drive it!

86-860

by 86-860 from Charlotte, NC on Tue Jul 11 2017

I purchased a new 86 860 and have to say it is a blast to drive. It gets tons of looks and corners like a go-cart.

Not too many cars lime my 86.

by shoecityslim from Boston Ma on Fri Sep 01 2017

Did you ever wonder what you would have, if you bolted a 205 bhp chainsaw engine to a go-kart and add a windscreen? Well, you can satisfy your curiosity, and drive a Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ. They are the same car, just a different badge on the hood. This is a stiff riding , quick handling, slingshot of a car. Not the fastest car, a lots of cars will run from it away in a straight line, but a lot more fun to drive than those over-powered beasts. Not an easy car to drive smoothly, you'll need to pay attention. But, fun, fun, fun. The reason you buy a car like this, is to enjoy the art of driving. There is one serious fault and that's the tyres. I am going to put Continentals on her and expect better ride quality and adhesion. Someone will point out her faults, and you'll say "Don't care, I love her regardless."

The handling on this car is insane. It's a dream to drive and we take turns making up reasons to drive it. It's just a really fun car

Our Take on the 2017 Toyota 86

The verdict:

Rechristened from its days as the Scion FR-S, the Toyota 86 remains a master of lightweight handling, but its appeal is growing more niche by the year.

Versus the competition:

The fact that the 86 is slower than a minivan is a hard pill to swallow when its $27,000-plus starting price buys a lot of other decent — and quicker — sports cars. None are quite like the 86, but Toyota's onetime prodigy is showing some age.

 

When Toyota deep-sixed its Scion division in early 2016, the automaker's namesake brand got a few refugees. Among them is the 86, a renamed FR-S with styling and interior tweaks, plus minor hardware revisions. Compare the two cars here.

In addition to the base 86 trim is an 860 Special Edition, a limited-run car in the vein of the Scion's Release Series; stack them up here. All versions employ a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that sends power to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. We drove both.

The 86 moniker recalls the enthusiast-loved Toyota Corolla GT-S "AE86," a rear-drive sports coupe from the 1980s. The Subaru BRZ, built under... Read More
