The new 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will keep most of the features seen on the base 2019 GT-86 except the roof. This topless sports beauty will probably be developed on the well-known Toyota TNGA platform. It will keep the aerodynamic and aggressive appearance, especially in the front fascia. Its long race-inspired nose will get a new bumper and a black grille together with the new set of LED headlights and fog lights. Its larger wheelbase will be equipped with a new set of 18-inch aluminum wheels and tires. The weight of the new GT-86 Convertible will be reduced due to lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber, used in its chassis construction. This will mean better fuel economy and an improved performance. Looking at the side profile, this model will seem sleek and sporty as if it cuts the air. In the rear part, you will notice a shorter boot with new LED taillights.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will definitely follow the trends of the next-generation sports cars. It will be equipped with two leather seats and thanks to the longer wheelbase, the driver and the passenger will enjoy more legroom and greater comfort. Other lightweight materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum will also be used to build the interior of this vehicle. When it comes to dashboard, it will hopefully undergo significant upgrades, especially in terms of technology. You can expect an instrument cluster data display and a touch screen with the latest infotainment system. It means that the new GT-86 Convertible will provide features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other smart phone connectivity options as well as satellite navigation, automatic climate control and numerous safety and driver assist systems.
