Applied to both GT and GTS versions, the suspension fine-tuning delivers what Toyota says is a more rigid setup for improved handling response and steering feel, while also enhancing ride quality through revisions to the way suspension components are attached to the chassis, rather than just the components themselves.
New suspension mounts, along with lower-friction oil, oil seals and guide bushings, decrease body roll and increase handling stability and response. To complement this, the shock absorbers have been refined, focusing on the initial movement and when the vehicle is operating at its limits or on wet roads.
Externally, a shark fin antenna has been added to both grades, with two new paint shades also available.
Inside, the GT variant (orange car in attached images) is now fitted with the instrument cluster from the higher-grade GTS, meaning a digital speed read-out and a rev indicator light, with a shift-position indicator for the auto GT. Pricing is unchanged, with the manual's RRP still $29,990 and the auto still at $32,790.
The 86 GTS (silver car in attached images) adds a reversing camera and a carbon-look motif for the instrument panel surround, with pricing increasing by $500 (manual) and $800 (auto).
