While the resurrected Toyota Supra might be all the rage at the moment, Toyota’s six-year-old 86 and its sister model, the Subaru BRZ, are approaching the end of their lives. That means Toyota is now looking at a successor, which will reportedly arrive around 2021.
According to JapanTimes, the next-generation Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ will get a bigger engine, increasing in capacity from the current 2.0-litre to 2.4. This naturally means more power, although exactly how much is anyone’s guest. It is also not clear whether Toyota will employ forced induction or stick with natural aspiration.
The report went on to point out the two sports cars is set to get an even lower centre of gravity for improved cornering performance.
Additionally, the new models will feature the latest driving assistance systems, including autonomous emergency braking and the now-mandatory in Europe eCall. The latter is a system that contacts the emergency services automatically in the event of a serious crash and sends the cars coordinates.
Elsewhere, buyers can expect a new infotainment system while interior materials will be improved.
