2023 GR86 Key Safety Features

Your choice of transmission will have a considerable effect on the safety features equipped to the new GR 86. On the plus side, every model comes with seven airbags including a driver's knee airbag and curtain airbags for both rows. The 86 also gets a rearview camera, hill start assist, tire pressure monitoring, vehicle stability control, traction control, and Smart Stop Technology. In the case of the Premium, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are included.

The automatic models benefit from several driver-assist features that are increasingly considered essential, regardless of the segment. These include pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision throttle management, lane departure warning, sway warning, lead vehicle start alert, and high beam assist. The automatic-equipped Premium gets a parking sonar system and reverse automatic braking.

2023 GR86 Reliability

Despite being relatively new in this incarnation, the GR86 has made it through nearly two years of sale at the time of writing with no recalls to its name. The platform itself is a carryover from before, which bodes well for its reliability, but the new engine may be cause for concern. Isolated reports of too much sealant used for the sump have resulted in a few oil pickup failures and spun bearings. This is not an official issue, but the possibility exists when using the GR86 in a track scenario.

If the new GR 86 does give you any issues, Toyota provides a standard three-year/36,000-mile comprehensive warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Corrosion coverage is provided for the first five years and, for the first two years/25,000 miles, factory scheduled maintenance and 24/7 roadside assistance are included.
