Currently reading: Toyota cuts GT86 price by £2500
New entry-level GT86 model is available to order now, priced from £22,495, while Toyota also introduces a new range-topping Aero model

Toyota has cut the price of its GT86 sports car by £2500 with the introduction of a new entry-level model.

The new GT86 Primo, which has already opened for orders with first deliveries scheduled for January, costs £22,495. Available with a six-speed manual transmission only, the Primo keeps the standard car's 2.0-litre naturally aspirated boxer engine, which produces 197bhp.

Primo models get 17-inch alloy wheels, a limited-slip differential, aluminium pedals, and interior luxuries including air conditioning, a tyre pressure monitoring system and Toyota's touchscreen infotainment unit with Bluetooth connectivity.

The lower price means that at the moment the GT86 costs the same as an entry-level Subaru BRZ.

After an introductory offer on the GT86 Primo ends, the price of the model will be set at £22,995 - which still represents a price cut of £2115 over the standard car. Its lower price point means the Primo does without the keyless entry and go, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, LED DRLs and HID headlights of the regular GT86.

Additionally, a new GT86 Aero model - which features a new body kit, rear spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels, joins the range priced from £26,495.

A new special edition Giallo version, which is also only available with a manual transmission, features black leather heated seats, new exterior trim and new yellow paintwork. Only 86 examples will be coming to the UK, with each priced at £27,495.

It can only get worse for

It can only get worse for this desirable car as the new MX 5 looks very good indeed and maybe the reason for these new models ?

They should offer an open top version...

that would have stolen sales from the MX5, a car that despite being around in its current guise for 10 years still sells well. As for me, £22,500 on a Cayman plus I'd keep our £1k MX5.

New trim rather than cut in price

It doesn't look like a price cut it's a new trim. Other magazines have been calling it price cut but I hoped my favourite Autocar would know the difference.
