Video: 2020 Toyota 86 Review and Track Test

The limited Hakone Edition Toyota 86 doesn't add any more power to the equation, but it does add bronze wheels, exclusive green exterior paint, and a tan and black interior. Does the 86 actually need anything more to make it capable on track? Presented by CRC Industries.

The Hakone is not a Japan only model?

Dangit, if Toyota was not dangling the Corolla Gazoo over my head, I'd be all over that.  I'm kind of in the market for a new car and the frisbee ticks a lot of buttons.  (None of them SENSIBLE buttons, but they are buttons nonetheless)

The Corolla is a warmed up FWD economy car.  The 86 is RWD driving enjoyment.  Drive one, let the tail hang out. 

I went from a Cobalt SS turbo with a tune to my FR-S.  The Cobalt was massively faster but I enjoy driving the FR-S much more.

Loved this review. Great in depth comparison with the DSG GTI as well
