What Car? says...

If you’re looking for a compact, low-weight sports car that places driver involvement above comfort and practicality, the Toyota GT86 could be the car for you.

A 197bhp 2.0-litre flat-four engine powers this front-engined, rear-wheel drive 2+2 coupe. It’s an engine that needs working hard if you want to make swift progress, but in fact the GT86 is more about handling than straight-line speed. With its classical layout, it’s tremendous fun to drive on twisty roads, and a hoot on a track.

For a sports car it’s well equipped, too. There are two trims to choose from, the standard GT86 and the Pro model, and even the base trim comes with an impressive array of standard equipment.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions of the GT86, and to see how it compares both with its near-identical sibling, the Subaru BRZ, and with other rivals such as the Audi TT.
