Toyota GT 86 coupe - Practicality & boot space
The Toyota GT 86 is not ideal for carrying larger items, and the rear seats are almost useless
You only have to glance at the Toyota GT 86 to see that it isn’t going to offer the same sort of practicality as a family hatchback. While it beats the Mazda MX-5 for space and versatility, another important rival, the Audi TT, has a bigger boot.
There’s plenty of storage space inside the car, though, and the two front-seat occupants should be very comfortable – even if space in the rear of the car is pretty limited. Visibility is excellent for the driver and the seat and steering wheel can be moved extensively to help you find the perfect driving position.
Toyota GT 86 interior space & storage
You’ll only really get two small children – or some teenagers that you want to punish – into the two back seats of the GT 86. The car can still easily be used on an everyday basis, though, providing nobody needs to sit in the back, and there are actually ISOFIX child-seat mountings on the rear seats if you've got very small children you want to transport safely. Its shape means getting a child seat in and out isn’t exactly easy, however.
The interior has a range of handy storage spaces, including relatively deep door bins and a big glovebox. Front passengers get loads of leg and headroom, while the driving position is brilliant thanks to there being plenty of adjustment in both the seat and steering wheel.
With a 237-litre boot, the Toyota GT 86 is less practical for trips away than the Audi TT, which offers 305 litres of luggage space. The boot is a useful shape, though, and can accommodate a surprising amount of shopping. You do get a folding rear bench to provide some options for transporting longer items, too.
