Exterior


When it comes to the exterior of the 2018 Toyota GT-86 convertible, most fans have probably been familiar with the well-known Scion FR-S. Well, the new GT-86 will clearly be inspired by this previous model and appear as a classic sports car with the longer hood and shorter rear end. Besides being topless, which will significantly reduce the weight of this car, the new GT-86 convertible should also use some lightweight materials such as carbon fiber in its chassis. Therefore, you can expect some serious improvements in terms of efficiency, handling, acceleration and overall performance. The front end of this model will definitely be more aggressive with its new grille and massive bumper. The long hood will help this model enhance its aerodynamics. You should also hope for the latest LED technology when it comes to headlights, fog lights, and taillights. Looking at the side profile, the new GT-86 convertible will reveal its heated mirrors and standard 18-inch alloy wheels. The back part will appear more rounded and wear a rear spoiler.

Interior

Inside the 2018 Toyota GT-86 Convertible, the fans should expect its recognizable sporty cabin that will be perfectly combined with some luxurious details and high-quality materials such as leather. The driver will also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Besides its overall comfort, the new GT-86 will also pay attention to its high-tech area. The center console will reveal a 7.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system and features such as navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, audio system, USB ports, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The driver will also get a 4.2-inch TFT information display in the instrument cluster. The only thing that can bother you is that there will be a lack of advanced safety systems in the new Toyota GT-86 convertible. Perhaps, you can hope for a rearview camera only.
