Is The Toyota 86 Worth Buying With The New Supra 2.0 Now On Sale?


The Toyota 86 may be getting a little long in the tooth, but it is still a great driver’s car. However, with a 2.0-liter variant of the Supra now on sale in the United States, does the 86 remain a compelling buy?

To find out, EverydayDriver put a 2021 Supra 2.0 against a 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition. Ultimately, the two reviewers are split on their opinions of which car is the better value proposition, but the review is well worth a watch.

On the spec sheet, the 86 Hakone features a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder and delivers a total of 205 hp and 156 lb-ft (211 Nm) of torque. It is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic and, of course, is rear-wheel drive.

By comparison, the Supra 2.0 has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 255 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque that is exclusively coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels. It can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.2 seconds, which isn’t too shabby considering this is the entry-level model.

So, not only is the Supra 2.0 much more powerful than the 86 but it is much more refined and has a far more luxurious interior. However, it costs roughly $16,000 more. That’s a lot of money, so can it justify such a premium over its smaller sibling?
