Balancing Power and Weight

The heavier a car, the more power it takes to move it. So the lighter the car and the more powerful the engine, the better the power-to-weight ratio.

The Optimum Balance

Achieving the optimum power-to-weight ratio is a matter of carefully balancing engine size and power against the car's weight.

Light and Powerful

The 86 is a very light car, with a curb weight ranging from a low 1222kg up to maximum of 1298kg depending on the variant.

So fitting it with a specially designed, lightweight FA20 horizontally opposed 2.0L engine, generating 147kW of power and 205Nm of torque, creates the sort of power-to-weight ratio that gets sports car drivers very excited.

This stunning power-to-weight ratio helps the 86 deliver a highly responsive and truly exhilarating sports car driving experience.
