In our many years of covering the auto industry, seldom have we seen the market getting extremely worked up for the arrival of a new car as much as it is now. Of course, we're referring to the much-awaited Toyota 86 sports coupe. If you've been following our website the past few months, you know this car is coming. In fact, to be very specific, you know it's getting launched next month. Toyota Motor Philippines is even driving the car around Metro Manila from today until Sunday in a publicity motorcade.
We guess the only things left to be determined are the variants and the pricing.
Well, we received information that the 86 will be available in three variants, including a base version and a top-of-the-line model. The prices? We were told the price range for the 86 would be from P1.5 million for the base variant up to P1.8 million for the top variant. Obviously, there's a middle variant between the two. We're guessing the middle one could be an automatic version of the base variant. But that's just a guess.
That's Hyundai Genesis Coupe territory right there. All we can say is: You can now start placing your orders.
