Toyota 86 Coupe Tweaked For 2014: Australian Price And Features

TMR Team | Sep 26, 2013


Toyota Australia has rolled out a couple of minor tweaks to its 86 Coupe for the 2014 model year, focused on style and handling.

Headlining the update is the addition of a Torsen limited-slip differential to the automatic-equipped GT, bringing the model in-line with the rest of the range.

Adding $300 to the price of the auto GT, Toyota says the update is a result of feedback from buyers wanting "the same dynamic properties" offered with the other three models in the 86 range.

Toyota has also added a rear spoiler to both GTS models - manual and auto - as standard equipment, increasing the price of each by $500.

The manual-equipped 86 GT, already equipped with the Torsen LSD, remains unchanged at $29,990 plus on-road costs.

    All they need to do now is fix the dash so it doesn't look like it was put together from parts left over from a 90's model Celica.

    Just tell me it isn't that garish spoiler from the GTS option pack.

      If its the spoiler I'm thinking than the waiting list on a GTS will be shortened.

    Does the GTS no longer have larger brakes?
