Toyota GT 86 Wins Fleet World Road Test Editor’s Award

Since its release form last year, the Toyota GT 86’s fame escalated quickly, being a pure driver’s car in a world where “hybrid” and “driving aids” gains more and more terrain due to safety and fuel consumption regulations.

Still, Toyota brought back the classic driver’s car that offers fun and driving pleasure at a low price. This oldschool combination made Fleet World to honor the GT 86 with their Road Test Editor’s Award recently.

“While the GT86 is unlikely to be the backbone of Toyota’s fleet sales, it’s been an incredibly effective brand builder for the carmaker in the UK.” said Fleet World Road Test Editor Alex Grant. “Offering an intoxicating mix of high thrills and low pricing, it’s a reminder that a love of cars runs deep through Toyota’s DNA, while spearheading an instantly recognizable new family style which can be drip-fed into the rest of the range.”

Powered by a 2-liter flat-four engine that makes 197 bhp and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft), the GT 86 does the standard sprint to 60 mph in 6 seconds flat, thanks to a 6-speed manual transmission that will let you fell a classic car under that modern body shell.
