2017 Toyota 86 : Review
Toyota has dropped the Scion brand and with that has absorbed some of the youth brand’s models into its lineup, including the former Scion FR-S, now known as the Toyota 86. Since the FR-S had “86” badges and harkened back to the manufacturer’s halcion race days with the 1980s AE86 model, the change seems fitting. The Toyota 86 is part of the Toyobaru collaboration with Subaru, which sells the car as the BRZ.

Not much has changed from the FR-S to the 86 outside of the badging. The Scion oval is now a Toyota swirl, but it’s otherwise still the driver’s car it has always been. And honestly, there wasn’t much that needed changing. This is a great car.
