Remember Toyota’s 86xStyle Cb Concept unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon? Well, the automaker has decided to bring it to production, but only for the Japanese market.
Marketed as the Toyota 86 style Cb, the model has a restyled front end which sports a friendlier face thanks to the rounder headlights and grille – apparently aimed at attracting women buyers. The rear end stays largely the same as that of the standard 86.
The interior features some changes as well, with the center console and dashboard getting a wood grain finish, while the leather-wrapped steering wheel gains the Cb emblem. Additionally, the instrument cluster sports white needles.
Nothing changes under the hood, as the 86 style Cb is powered by the same 200hp 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated flat-four engine, offered either with standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic.
The Toyota 86 style Cb is offered with five exterior colors, including two two-tone schemes that combine Nuance Beige and Demitasse Brown. Customers will be able to order the car from April 23 at Toyopet, Corolla and Netz dealers across Japan, with prices starting from 4,180,582 yen (approximately $34,882) for the manual version.
