How much does the Toyota GT86 cost to run?

The 2.0L petrol is the most economical Toyota GT86 to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Toyota GT86 2.0L petrol costs £200.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band G.

It does almost 40 MPG on average, which means it will cost £15.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the BMW 2 Series 1.5L diesel and the more thirsty Jaguar F Type 2.0L petrol.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 30, which is lower than the BMW 2 Series 2.0L petrol, but higher than the BMW 2 Series 2.0L petrol. (If insurance cost is important to you then the BMW 2 Series has the lowest insurance group.)

Toyota GT86: How big is the boot?

The Toyota GT86 has a below average boot space (237 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the BMW 2 Series MPV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 560 litres.

Is the Toyota GT86 easy to park?

While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the MINI Coupe), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill three quarters of the space.

If you park on the street regularly, this is one of the cars to shortlist. At 4240m long it gives you reasonable 560mm space to move the car in and out of the bay.

Which Toyota GT86 has the best performance?

The fastest Toyota GT86 from 0-60, is the 2.0L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 205 lbs/ft torque and 200 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 7.6 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the BMW 2 Series 2.0L diesel, which will beat your Toyota GT86 to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
