Toyota’s popular small sports coupe is about to come redesigned next year. Along with it, we should see the 2022 Toyota GT-86 Convertible as well. Small roadsters are becoming more and more popular these days, so this seems like a perfect addition to the company’s lineup. The original GT-86 is present on the market for about seven years. So, a redesign is near. Along with a new coupe version, we will see a convertible as well. Two models will share most of their design characteristics.

Pros

  • Powerful engine
  • Excellent handling
  • Upscale interior

Cons

  • High price tag

Exterior

The upcoming redesign of the GT-86 is about to bring one very important novelty. We are about to see a new body style in the offer, a convertible. Compared to the standard model, it will come with different body layout. Rest of the car should be identical. The new generation will come with improvements in various aspects. Once again, we will see cooperation with Subaru. Toyota will develop a new platform, while Subaru will bring its all-new engine, as well as the famous AWD system. Compared to the original model, the new one will be lighter, but also more powerful. Such combination promises significant improvements in terms of performances. In terms of the styling, expect to see Toyota’s newest design language, inspired by the revived legend, Toyota Supra.

Interior

Pretty much all small roadsters are pretty simple when it comes to interior design. The current-generation GT-86, as well as Mazda Miata, Fiat 124 and other small convertibles, feature pretty straightforward cabin designs. The whole dash is oriented to the driver, while there is no space of unnecessary features. The 2022 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will be a little bit different. It will come with an improved quality of interior materials and raised the overall level of comfort. Of course, expect more standard equipment in the offer, including some advanced tech features.

Engine

One of the biggest novelties for 2022 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will be an all-new engine. As we already mentioned, Subaru has developed a completely new engine, which will provide significantly more power compared to the current GT-86. It is a new 2.4-liter turbo inline-four engine, which delivers 60 hp more compared to the current model, not to mention almost two times more torque. A total output goes around 260 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Combined with Subaru’s famous AWD system, it promises spectacular performances.
