The test car arrived equipped with the 6-speed automatic transmission. Although we would have preferred the 6-speed manual, the GR86 still delivers as an engaging everyday driver. In Sport or Track mode the transmission mapping gets much more aggressive and holds lower gears longer to keep the engine in the right rpm range for what’s next. The new engine’s maximum torque — available at a much lower rpm — adds to the driving experience. The GR86 no longer feels underpowered and can claim space as a fun, sporty car that is a joy to drive on road and track.
