2017 Toyota 86 Arrives At US Dealerships, Priced From $27,120

Toyota announced pricing for their new 2017 Corolla, 86 and Corolla iM models.

Thanks to its revised engine tuning, the two-door rear-driven coupe now produces 205hp (207PS) and 156 lb-ft (212Nm) of torque, with the latter now offered at a wider range of revs.

The chassis has been updated with new shocks and different spring rates while both manual and automatic models now come with Hill Start Assist Control as standard. Toyota also announced an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway with the six-speed automatic transmission and 20 city/27 highway with the six-speed manual transmission.

Pricing for the 2017 Toyota 86 starts at $27,120 with a manual transmission, an increase of $950, and $27,840 for the six-speed automatic, $570 more than before.

The Toyota Corolla gains also a sportier look for MY2017, thanks to a new grille and LED headlamps. The cabin gets an updated fabric interior, available in Almond, Ash/Dark Gray or Black/Brown color schemes. The climate control panel is also redesigned while Toyota added circular air vents for a more upscale feeling.

Toyota will also offer a special 50th anniversary edition of the new Corolla, limited to 8,000 units. The special version will come in three exterior colours: Classic Silver, Blizzard Pearl and the exclusive Black Cherry Pearl. The interior features black mixed media seats with Black Cherry piping and contrast stitching with the dash panel and door trim finished in the same theme.

As for the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM, this now comes with Toyota’s Safety Sense as standard as well as eight standard airbags. Power comes from a 137hp 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which is paired either to a six-speed manual or a CVT gearbox.

Pricing for the 2017 Corolla starts at $19,365 while the 2017 Corolla iM model asking for $19,615. The new Toyota 86 and Corolla iM models will arrive at dealerships later this month, with the updated Corolla to reach them in early September.
