To keep weight in check, engineers gave the new GR 86 an aluminum roof and front fenders. This is in addition to the hood that was already made of lighter weight material on the previous model.

The GR 86's new cabin layout is simple with comfortable front seats, but the backseat remains cramped for adult passengers.
