TORRANCE, California — The 2017 Toyota 86, the rebadged version of the outgoing Scion FR-S coupe, will start at $27,120 when it arrives at Toyota dealerships in late August. Pricing includes an $865 destination charge.
The base price is for the Toyota 86 with a standard six-speed manual transmission and reflects an increase of $950 over the outgoing FR-S, according to Toyota.
The Toyota 86 with the optional six-speed automatic is priced at $27,840, including destination fees, for an increase of $570.
The FR-S had been known as the Toyota 86 in other markets, including Asia and Australia. Toyota decided to discontinue the Scion brand earlier this year.
Several upgrades mark the debut of the Toyota 86. They include new LED headlights and taillights, alloy wheels with a twisted spoke design and new bumpers. The cabin features new seating material with silver stitching and "86" logos.
The carryover engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that delivers 205 horsepower, a 5-hp increase.
Edmunds says: The Scion FR-S has come to the end of the road, but the affordably priced and sporty Toyota 86 slots neatly into its place in the Toyota lineup.
