Toyota 86 Connectivity and Other Features
The 86 is ready for track day, without a doubt. But we’re not here to discuss that today. We’re here to talk about whether it’s ready for your daily commute. Does it have the industry-standard features that consumers have come to expect when buying a new car?
For instance, does the Toyota 86 have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto?
Toyota 86 Smartphone Compatibility
The Toyota 86 is both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. The apps are shown and controlled from the 7-inch high definition touchscreen. Whether you’re listening to your favorite music, podcast, audiobook, or making a phone call, the 8-speaker Clari-Fi audio system will deliver. With crisp, clear highs and balanced, breathy lows, you’ll experience your media like never before. All without drowning out the throaty purr of the engine. And don’t forget about that USB charging port to keep your smart device’s battery going, even on the long trips or track days.
Toyota 86 Safety Features
Each Toyota 86 model comes standard with multiple safety features. For instance, it has hill start assist control, smart stop technology, vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, and brake assist.
Toyota 86 Performance Features
The 86 employs a Hachi Roku-inspired RWD chassis that offers nimble handling. It’s paired with a multi-link rear sport-tuned suspension and a lightweight body to enhance ride quality and handling as much as possible. The vehicle stability control (VSC) has a track mode that that delays VSC for as long as possible before it kicks in and helps stabilize and center the 86 back on course.
