According to the information that our team has got, the second generation of the well-known Toyota GT-86 Convertible is on its way. It is expected to hit the showrooms as a 2019 model and leave all the fans of sports cars breathless.
If the rumors about the 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible come true, we can only say that this topless sports coupe will simply catch everyone’s attention. It will probably retain most of the features you have seen on the base GT-86 model, but they will certainly be upgraded and somehow seem more aggressive. The front fascia of this model has a long nose that has obviously been inspired by racing cars design. It will also get a new black grille, sports bumper and extended front splitter that will all together give this car a more aerodynamic look. You will as well find new set of LED headlights and fog lights. In the back part of this Convertible, there are LED taillights and a bigger rear spoiler. The boot appears shorter and has a larger rear wing. The new GT-86 Convertible is expected to get 18-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in high-efficiency tires.
When it comes to interior of the new 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible, we can say that you should be expecting a sophisticated and modern cabin. Being topless, this model proudly shows its two leather seats that will be ultimately comfortable, supportive and adjustable so you can enjoy your ride. It will probably provide more space, especially the legroom, due to a larger wheelbase. Besides leather, other high-quality materials will be used to furnish the cabin such as aluminum and carbon fiber which will also be lightweight. Since the new GT-86 Convertible is the next-generation sports car, we hope for numerous updates when it comes to hi-tech features, infotainment and entertainment system. It should also include the necessary safety systems and driver assist features.
It has not been confirmed which engine we should expect the new 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will be hiding under its hood. However, two possibilities have been rumored and anticipated. The first might come with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 180 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque. The other would include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that hits 200 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. The hybrid version has also been speculated. The new Convertible should get an eight-speed automatic transmission, but this information also has not been confirmed.
