Toyota introduces new GT86 Primo model, drops price £2000

Toyota has cut the entry price of the GT86 to just £22,995 thanks to the introduction of a new Primo model. That’s more than £2000 less than the current cheapest version. Buyers who order one early can also get a further £500 off.

The GT86 Primo gets the same 2.0-litre engine as the rest of the GT86 range and has 17-inch alloys, a limited-slip differential, aluminium sports pedals, air conditioning, power-folding door mirrors, front fog lights, twin tailpipes, the Toyota Touch multimedia system, Bluetooth and a new tyre pressure monitoring system.

Available exclusively with manual transmission, the new GT86 Primo is available to order now, with the first cars arriving in January 2015.

The rest of the GT86 range gets udpates including a new ‘shark fin’ roof antenna, a tyre pressure warning system and carbon fibre-effect finish for the instrument panel.

Other new models include the GT86 Aero which has a large rear spoiler and front, side and rear skirts along with 18-inch OZ Ultraleggera alloy wheels in anthracite grey.

There is also a new special edition GT86 Giallo which comes with heated black leather seats, a black GT86 side decal, gloss black door mirror housings and yellow metallic paintwork. Customers can also add optional single-stripe bonnet, roof and boot decals at no extra cost. Just 86 examples are available for UK customers, each one individually numbered.
