Toyota GT 86 coupe

£22,995 - £28,495

The Toyota GT 86 won Carbuyer's Best Coupe award in 2014, thanks to its precise handling, eager and powerful 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and responsive brakes. It has sleek styling that demands you drive it rather than look at it – and it doesn’t disappoint. The GT 86 was developed in unison with Subaru in an attempt to add excitement to the Toyota range and improve the brand's 'dependable but dull' image. It offers great driving fun as well as excellent value for money. Priced around £25,000, it's targeted squarely at buyers who in the past would have chosen the Audi TT. It may not quite match the TT for style or be as aggressive-looking as the Nissan 370Z, but the GT 86 still turns plenty of heads. And what its interior lacks in quality and cutting-edge design, it more than makes up for with generous standard equipment and accessories.
