- the 2022 toyota gr86 sports car will start at $28,725, with the premium trim starting at $31,325.
- it comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission and a six-speed automatic is a $1500 option.
- the gr86 will arrive at u.s. toyota dealerships in december, the company says.
toyota has revealed another small point of differentiation between the new 2022 gr86 sports car and its twin, the 2022 subaru brz: the price. the 86 starts at $28,725 for the base trim, just barely undercutting the brz's starting price of $28,955.
that starting price is for the base model, which comes with a six-speed manual transmission and a 2.4-liter boxer-four engine with 228 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. a more expensive premium trim is available for $31,325 and swaps out the base car's 17-inch wheels and all-season tires for 18-inch wheels and michelin pilot sport 4 summer tires. the premium also gains a larger rear spoiler, heated front seats, and leather and faux-suede upholstery.
a six-speed automatic transmission is available for $1500 on either trim, but we don't recommend choosing the two-pedal option in a fun-loving rear-wheel-drive sports car like this. the automatic-transmission car does come with a few extra driver-assistance systems—including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and lane-departure warning—that the manual car does without.
