In response to the growing demand for practical sports cars, Toyota has introduced the second generation of the GR86 in the form of the 2022 model year version. The second-generation GR86 has been radically redesigned and receives an extensive list of updates. The 2022 GR86 is offered in two configurations – Base and Premium.

The previous version of the Toyota 86 turned heads throughout the automotive industry. And the 2022 GR86 is taking it a step ahead. The 2022 GR86 can hit the straights and corners with complete ease. Handling characteristics determine the performance of a sports car on the racetrack. Taking this into consideration, the 2022 GR86 comes equipped with a range of technical components to improve its stability. This includes a Torsen® limited-slip differential that helps in precision handling, and GR circuit-tuned coil springs and shock absorbers, to name some of them. The GR86 can sprint to 60 MPH from a standstill in an impressive 6.1 seconds, 0.5 seconds faster than the previous model year version.
The GR86’s interior is a complete contrast to its characteristics. Even with all its performance capabilities, the GR86 offers superior comfort. The GR-themed trim decorates the entire cabin. This adds to the vehicle’s sporty character. A few of these trims are - a GR leather-trimmed manual tilt/telescopic three-spoke steering wheel with contrast stitching and a GR Engine Start/Stop button. The base GR86 variant gets sport bucket seats with a G-embossed design. Features like two-stage heated front seats with leather-trimmed bolsters and Ultrasuede® inserts are offered in the GR86 Premium as standard.
The infotainment system offered is easy to use. The interface is like what is offered in commuter vehicles, and this makes the GR86 a practical sports vehicle.
