New Toyota 86, Subaru BRZ May Transfer To Toyota’s TNGA Platform

The Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform has now proven its substance by breathing new life into all fashion of new Toyota automobiles, from the 2019 RAV4 to the 2020 Corolla. In the future, its strength even becomes the platform for the second generation of Toyota's small joint-venture sports car.

The intention why Subaru Corporation and Toyota Motor can’t use it is because it’s an all-wheel-drive setup. The BRZ and 86 are rear-drive and it won’t work for the new-gen models. Torque News has reported Subaru and Toyota will not ever build an AWD BRZ/86. Renovating the auto to power all four wheels would change all from handling, the car's low center of severity, it has the driving subtleties of a more expensive sports car, and all-wheel-drive would muddle up the dynamics in a big way.

There is supposedly a third option, but it's been nixed. Subaru also has a new platform on its hands, the Subaru Global Platform, but it's contrived with all-wheel-drive cars in mind since that's Subaru's forte. Motoring's foundation believed that AWD is not being reproduced for the sports-car twins' successors, and since SGP cannot handgrip rear-wheel drive, that's the end of that conversation.

Tom Doll CEO of Subaru of America was interrogated at the New York Show at the new 2020 Outback reveal, and told Motoring the sports vehicles would remain rear-driven and could be built on Toyota foundations and not the new SGP. In the interview, Doll said, "It’s a very bendable platform, but we make all-wheel drive vehicles. That's our talent, all-wheel drive."

Other reports have now exploded up regarding future repetitions of the rear-wheel-drive BRZ and 86. Earlier in April, The Japanese Times described that the next group of both cars will receive a 2.4-liter engine. That's the same movement as the four-cylinder in the Subaru Ascent, and its 260-horsepower production would be a vast boost for the clones, as they only top out at 205 horsepower from their communal 2.0-liter flat-four.
