The Toyota 86 remains one of our favorite affordable sports cars and now there’s a new addition for 2020.
Named after one of the greatest driving roads in the world, the 86 Hakone Edition is based on the 86 GT and is virtually identical to the JDM-only 86 British Green Limited. As a result, it features an eye-catching green paint job which is contrasted by a black spoiler and 17-inch wheels with a bronze finish.
The sporty styling continues in the cabin as the Hakone Edition has two-tone leather and Alcantara seats which are separated by a matching armrest. Drivers will also find a Toyota 86 logo embroidered on the dashboard as well as tan contrast stitching on the steering wheel, parking brake and shifter. Last but not least, there’s a special trunk mat with an embossed 86 logo.
Since the model is based on the 86 GT, it comes nicely equipped with LED headlights and a dual exhaust system with chrome tips. Other highlights include a dual-zone automatic climate system, heated seats and an anti-theft system. Buyers will also find cruise control, a push button ignition and a remote keyless entry system. As a special bonus, owners will receive a pair of tan key gloves and a folio cover with a debossed 86 logo.
Like the standard model, the Hakone Edition has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that produces up to 205 hp (153 kW / 208 PS) and 156 lb-ft (211 Nm) of torque. It can be connected to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.
The 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition will go on sale in the United States this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch. However, we can expect the car to cost slightly more than the 2019 86 GT which starts at $29,355.
