The Toyota GT 86 is the car keen drivers have been waiting for. Ever since its debut as a sleek concept at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, this coupe has become one of the most anticipated models of the decade

It certainly looks the part. With its long nose, low roofline and short tail, the GT 86 has classic coupe proportions. Racy touches include an aerodynamically tuned tailgate spoiler, ‘double bubble’ roof and huge twin-exit exhausts. It’s not as sleek as an Audi TT or as muscular as a Nissan 370Z, but has plenty of visual appeal

Inside, the GT 86 is less impressive. The busy dashboard design already looks a bit dated, while there are far too many hard and shiny plastics, giving the cabin a slightly low-rent feel. And the cramped rear seats can only really be used by small children. Yet the driving position is perfect and the high-backed, figure-hugging seats are extremely comfortable
