Toyota 86 gets an $800 price cut
The Toyota 86 GT now comes standard with a reversing camera and touch-screen audio system valued at $1000, while prices have been cut by up to $800.
BOTH THE Toyota 86 GT manual and auto have realised price cuts of $300. And, while a weight-saving tyre-repair kit is fitted as standard, a full-size spare can now be ordered at no cost. Prices have also been cut on the GTS variants, with the manual now priced $500 less and the auto $800 less, thanks to recent duty reductions.
The reversing camera image is viewed on the new 6.1-inch touch-screen monitor that doubles as the control centre for the upgraded audio system. GTS variants already have these features with the addition of satellite navigation.
When the full-size spare is ordered and fitted a urethane cover embossed with the 86 logo and the model’s distinctive T-mesh motif, a design repeated throughout the car in areas such as the grille, instrument panel and meters will be added. Boot space is reduced, but Toyota hasn’t said by how much.
The Toyota 86 has been Australia’s best-selling sports car for the past two years with local sales topping 13,000 cars since June 2012 – the third-highest total in the world.
The 86 like all new Toyota vehicles, is covered by Toyota Service Advantage with a capped price of $190 for each of up to four scheduled services in the first three years or 60,000km.
