The Toyota GT 86 has been charged with injecting a little excitement into the Japanese brand's dull and dependable image. Developed in partnership with Subaru, the rear-wheel drive coupe promises to mix driving fun with great value for money. The GT 86 is priced at around £25,000, and is aimed squarely at entry-level versions of the evergreen Audi TT. While the Toyota isn’t as attractive as the sleek Audi or muscular Nissan 370Z, it still has the ability to turn heads. And what the interior lacks in quality and cutting edge design, it more than makes up for with generous standard kit. But the GT 86 is car that demands to be driven rather than looked at. Sharp and engaging handling, a characterful 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and strong brakes help make the Toyota a number one choice for back road blasts - and the easy winner of our 2013 CarBuyer Best Coupe Award.
