2019 Toyota 86 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Toyota 86?

The Toyota 86 (previously known as the Scion FR-S before Toyota discontinued the Scion brand) is a fun-to-drive four-seat sports coupe. It has rear-wheel drive, and power comes from a 205-horsepower, 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. The four-cylinder teams with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available six-speed automatic (engine output drops to 200 hp with the automatic). Competitors include other small sports cars like the related Subaru BRZ, Mazda MX-5 Miata and Hyundai Veloster.

What's New on the 2019 Toyota 86?

A new TRD Special Edition joins the lineup for 2019. Limited to 1,418 copies, the TRD Special Edition features Brembo brakes, a TRD exhaust system, Sachs shocks, 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer tires and a TRD body kit with TRD graphics. Inside, the black interior has red accents and a TRD logo.

What Features in the 2019 Toyota 86 Are Most Important?

The standard manual transmission is a joy to shift, and manual-equipped cars have a little extra power to boot. All models come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Bluetooth streaming audio and USB connectivity. Built-in navigation is optional. Also available is dual-zone automatic climate control and keyless access with push-button start.

Should I Buy the 2019 Toyota 86?

First offered for the 2013 model year, this sports car that was co-developed by Toyota and Subaru is showing its age. Even so, while it's not as powerful as some sports cars, the 86 and related BRZ still deliver a rewarding, engaging driving experience. You just need to prefer handling finesse to brute power.

Great car - fun to drive!

by CarGirl55 from Valley Forge, PA on June 7, 2020

This is a really great little sportscar. I rarely see another one on the road, so it tends to turn heads. Very responsive. I recently took it on a road trip and the seats comfortably hugged my body. ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
