Toyota has released full details of its 2017 GT86 facelift.

The sports car has had tweaks to its suspension and engine, along with some updates to the interior.

On the exterior, the GT86 now sports a larger front grille, a new bumper, different housings for the fog lights, LED lights, a changed rear spoiler, and updated 17-inch alloy wheels.

On the inside, there’s a new smaller steering wheel that’s fitted with audio and display controls, and on the dashboard, Toyota has added a 6.1-inch display screen. Standard trim includes LED headlights, cruise control, heated mirror, aluminium pedals, hill start assist, Bluetooth, DAB radio and keyless go.

Upgrading to the Pro trim adds leather and Alcantara upholstery that extends to the doors, silver stitching, heated seats, and a boot spoiler. Sat-nav and connectivity is available as an option.

There’s no change to the engine – that’s still a 2.0-litre petrol with 197bhp and manual or automatic gearbox – but there have been a few changes to the steering and shocks to help improve the car’s agility, and the chassis has been strengthened, according to Toyota.

Toyota has also added a selectable ‘track’ mode, which allows drivers to adjust the level of stability and traction control, or turn them off completely.

The GT86 will be available in the UK from October, costing from £25,945, and from £27,095 for the Pro trim.
