Toyota GT 86 sports coupe to cost £25k

Prices for the rather excellent rear-wheel-drive coupe released. Get one

Toyota GT 86

Toyota has revealed the price on its rather excellent GT 86 sports coupe. And that price is £24,995.

When we drove the car in Madrid last month, the company told us it was aiming for the Peugeot RCZ and Volkswagen Scirocco, so that £25k price tag slots in nicely: an equivalent Scirocco, the 2.0-litre TSI, costs £24k, while a GT-spec 200bhp RCZ costs a shade under £26k.

And yet, as we found out, neither can hold a candle to the GT 86, so its main competition will likely come from its twin, the Subaru BRZ - a car likely to cost between £26k to £28k. In terms of driving, both are identical, and identically excellent, as TG mag's Ollie Marriage found out. In fact, it is the best Toyota he's ever driven, and "one of the best driving sports cars of the last decade".

Read the full verdict on the long-awaited Toyota GT 86 here, and then let us know which one you'd rather opt for, the Subaru BRZ or GT 86, below.

Now share it...
