According to the information that our team has hot, the second generation of the GT-86 has been on its way to hit the showrooms as a 2019 Toyota GT-86 model. You can hope for a sports car with excellent performance and some significant updates, including those under its hood. But, there are also rumors that there will be also new Toyota GT-86 Convertible version soon.
The 2019 Toyota GT-86 is going to make its appearance as the real next-generation high-performance sports car available in two versions – a sports coupe and a convertible. The coupe will definitely be inspired by race cars and it will simply promise great speed and adrenaline to its fans. It has not been confirmed yet whether Toyota will continue its collaboration with Subaru when it comes to this model, but you can bet it will not let you down. The new GT-86 will use the well-known Toyota TNGA platform. Toyota will also tend to use lightweight materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum in order to save some weight, as it has been the case lately with most of the next-generation models. Such a lightweight chassis will only help this model improve its acceleration and performance. When it comes to exterior design, the GT-86 will appear more aggressive, aerodynamic and sportier. On its long and redesigned hood, the first thing that you will notice is its wider grille. The bumper and the splitter will be restyled as well while the lighting system will use the LED technology. This model will also enhance its suspension system and provide a better handling and stability.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota GT-86 will most certainly reveal a modern and sporty cabin perfectly combined with high-quality materials and luxurious features. Toyota will use some lightweight materials inside this model as well. The seats will be larger, comfortable and covered in premium-leather. The driver will probably get a sports leather-wrapped steering wheel, an information display in the instrument cluster and a larger touch-screen display in the center console with the latest infotainment system and lots of modern features and connectivity options. The new GT-86 is expected to include necessary safety systems and driver assist features as well.
Under the hood of the 2019 Toyota GT-86, this model might continue using the current 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has been able to deliver up to 250 horsepower. On the other hand, it might get a brand-new engine or even a hybrid system with battery pack, but this has not been confirmed yet and we expect more information soon. The new GT-86 should be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and get a rear-wheel drive. It has also been estimated that this model should take less than 7 seconds to hit 60 mph.
