Toyota 86 Style Cb [Cool Beauty] Edition Revealed for Japan
The Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ are receiving new updates this year for the Japanese market.
Easily the biggest change is the introduction of the new 86 “style Cb” edition, which receives an entirely new look. The ‘Cb’ stands for ‘Cool Beauty,’ and Toyota says that it puts a focus on fashion sense. The car gets a new front bumper and grille, an elongated nose and new oval-shaped headlights along with a two-tone paint scheme.
On the inside, the new 86 Cb gets a leather steering wheel and a new instrument panel which incorporates wood grain.
Toyota says the updated 86 car has revised power steering that results in a more light and natural steering feel and a more rigid body, though Toyota also says ride comfort is improved.
Over at Subaru, the exact same changes are coming to the steering and ride quality of the BRZ, though the car gets a few unique interior appointments. The new BRZ gets some satin silver interior bezels on the steering wheel spokes and shift panel.
No engine or performance upgrades were announced for either car.
