2019 Toyota 86: Yes, This is a Toyota Car

Horsepower is overrated. Don’t believe us? Visit Keyes Toyota, check your expectations and everything you think you know about Toyota cars, and get behind the wheel of the 2019 Toyota 86. Is it the most powerful thing out there? Not by a long shot. But if you’re looking for a car that reminds you that driving can be fun — yes, even around Los Angeles — this is the one.

2019 Toyota 86 Details

Model details

  • 2.0L flat-four engine
  • Six-speed manual or automatic transmission
  • Horsepower and torque:
    205 hp /156 lb.-ft. (manual)
    200 hp / 151 lb.-ft. (automatic)

The 2019 Toyota 86 is the only coupe, only new Toyota model with a boxer engine, and the only Toyota car with rear-wheel drive. If you don’t know how to drive a stick, this is your excuse to learn. Yes, you can get a six- speed automatic transmission, but you’d be missing out on the sheer joy of rear-wheel drive and a manual gearbox.

And did we mention you get a few more horsepower and a bit more torque with the manual transmission? It more than makes up for the lack of rear seating space (this is a 2+2, but you wouldn’t want to take a long trip with back-seat passengers).

2019 Toyota 86 Safety and Special Features

The Toyota 86 offers the STAR Safety System with ABS, traction control, hill start assist control, and Smart Stop Technology. Overall, however, this car is more driver-focused than tech-focused. Case in point: the new and strictly limited Toyota 86 TRD Special Edition, with an upgraded interior and better aerodynamics. Your Toyota dealer serving Los Angeles can tell you more about options and upgrades available to this car.

Special Features

  • Be sure to ask about the Track Mode. You can’t really drift, but you can get a bit looser handling that puts the rear-wheel drive through its paces.

Buying a 2019 Toyota 86

With the Toyota Supra returning to the fold soon, the Toyota 86 will no longer be the sole performance model offered by the Toyota brand. Soon we’ll have two cars that are the antithesis of practicality, and the antidote to the dull daily drive. For now, why not visit Van Nuys Toyota for a test drive? We serve Los Angeles and Mission Hills from our location at 5855 Van Nuys Blvd in Van Nuys, CA.
