The new Toyota 86 sports car looks great.

We saw the 2022 Subaru BRZ last year, and on Sunday, Toyota debuted its version. Welcome the second-generation Toyota 86 sports car to the world, which bows with more power, edgier looks and the same mission as its predecessor: provide affordable fun for the masses.

Toyota revealed the new 86 in Japan with partner Subaru showing off the BRZ for the first time locally. While the two wear different wrappers, the 86 is once again largely an identical car to the BRZ. Behind the Toyota Gazoo Racing grille sits a 2.4-liter flat-four engine, sans turbocharger, that makes 230 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. We’ll have to wait for US-spec units to see if the 86 actually makes a couple more horsepower than the BRZ’s 228 hp, or if the kilowatts-to-horsepower conversion is generous. Toyota told Roadshow US-specific information will come in the weeks ahead. Like the BRZ, the 2.4-liter engine replaces the 2.0-liter unit with over 20 more hp and nearly 30 additional lb-ft.
