2017 Toyota GT86 Specs, Review

As the current Toyota GT86 is nearing its fourth-year anniversary, the Japanese automaker is planned to offer it a mid-cycle facelift. It is spied that the automaker is a flippantly camouflaged GT86 model in Europe, which is the indistinguishable twin of the North American version, Scion FR-S, so the same modifications would apply to the model. The major difference between the current GT86 and the 2017 Toyota GT86 is the front bumper, which is wider than before. It also comes with lower air intake flanked by dissimilar mist lamps.

The LED technology seems to have been exercised in the front and at the back for the headlamps and tail lamps. These parts maintain their earlier shape, whereas other updates contain the re-profiled back bumper and a little bigger wing. New GT86 get more power than its predecessor, as it comes equipped with a stronger engine.
