android, 2023 toyota gr 86 pricing and specs: prices go way up for subaru brz twin!
The new-generation Toyota GR 86 has seen prices skyrocket by up to 35 per cent.

The 2023 Toyota GR86 pricing has been announced, and the new-gen sports coupe is more expensive than ever before.

With a list price of $43,240 before on-road costs for the GT base model and $45,390 for the GTS, the second-gen 86 model heralds a huge price bump compared to the model it replaces. But in a move that will appease some buyers, whether you choose manual or automatic, the price is the same.

Let’s just add a little bit of additional context here. The last versions of the first-gen 86 had list prices of $32,180 for the manual GT, rising to $34,480 for the auto GT. That means the new GR86 GT represents a $11,060 jump, while the auto is a bit less egregious, at $8760 over the last one.

Buyers of the GR86 GTS will be paying $8010 more for the manual, and the auto GTS version is – by the numbers at least – the least offensive price step, at $5710 more than before.

Toyota says there are plenty of additional items to help justify the 15 to 35 per cent price jumps across the model range, so here’s a rundown on each of the versions and what you get.

The GT grades score 17-inch alloy wheels (no spare, it’s a tyre repair kit), LED headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED rear fog lights, power folding heated side mirrors, keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen media system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB+ radio, six-speaker stereo, steering wheel audio controls and 2x USB-A ports.

Now, safety spec is improved across the board, but some of the most critical crash prevention technologies are only for the automatic model.

Inside is a 8.0-inch touchscreen media system.

Things like auto emergency braking (AEB), parking brake support with rear parking sensors (a low-speed rear AEB setup), adaptive cruise control (standard cruise for the manual), lane departure warning and lead vehicle move-off alert are all reserved for automatic models, only. It’s the same case for the mechanically related Subaru BRZ.

Of note, the manual GTS also features blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert on its equipment list.

However, all GR86s score seven airbags (dual front, front side, full-length curtain and driver’s knee), a reversing camera, tyre pressure monitoring and an alarm system.

The GTS wears black 18-inch alloy wheels.

Step up to the GTS, and for your extra $2150 you actually score quite a lot of potentially worthwhile gear, such as 18-inch black wheels, intelligent adaptive headlights, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, heated front seats with black faux-suede trim (in either grey or red), black or red carpet and floor mats plus a black or red accented trim on the doors, scuff plates, aluminium pedals, puddle lamps and illuminated vanity mirrors.

Both are powered by the same, upsized 2.4-litre petrol four-cylinder ‘boxer’ engine, producing a gruntier 174kW of power and 250Nm of torque. Those figures represent increases of about 15 per cent… maybe that was Toyota’s justification for the price jumps.

The 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine produces 174kW/250Nm.

As before there’s a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic (no extra cost), and the GR 86 is, of course, still rear-wheel drive.

Official combined fuel consumption for the manual models is 9.4L/100km for the GT and 9.5L/100km for the GTS. Auto models claim 8.7L/100km (GT) and 8.8L/100km (GTS).

2023 Toyota GR86 pricing (MSRP – before on-road costs)

Variant Price
GT – manual and automatic $43,240
GTS – manual and automatic $45,390
