At first glance, the sleek design of the 2017 Toyota looks familiar. Perhaps too familiar, actually. There are no massive design changes like a stripped-out track special or turbocharger.

The most obvious design change is to the head and tail lights. They’re now all LED with a more modern, high-tech style. The tinted look is similar to the GTS. The car also includes daytime running lights and fog lights.

While the lights are a definite improvement, they do seem to be the only obvious major design shift. And they are. But there’s a bit more to the re-design than initially meets the eye. Look closer and you’ll see a whole host of subtle, slight and significant improvement.

The front and rear bumpers now have a more modern, organic style. This is more in line with the recent designs of many different Toyota designs. The front bumper is lower and sharper, which helps reduce turbulence over the wheel wells. The new bumper also improves downforce.

In case you don’t remember, the 2012 model had vents and a piston badge on the front quarter panel. Those have now been replaced by a smaller, round 86 logo located behind the front wheel.

The rear of the car has an all-aluminium boot lid spoiler. This is a significant upgrade from the previous plastic unit.

The rear of the car also has reinforced spot welds. The rear sway bar is thicker than before, with revised spring and damper tuning. The car now handles tighter and more reliably when turning at high speeds.

Overall, the body of the GT doesn’t have major design changes. But the more rigid body, revised suspension system and power increase do result in significant performance improvement on the road.
