2017 Toyota 86

What was once the Scion FR-S became, in model year 2017, the Toyota 86. It’s the essence of the flickable, fun, sportscar, with the looks to match — at an affordable price. Though its engine doesn’t offer a walloping amount of power — the 2-liter four makes 205 hp, tied to a six speed manual (200 with a six-speed automatic) — the rear-wheel-drive platform and its light steering touch make the 86 just a total joy to drive.
