Seen here is the Grand Cabin variant of the Hiace which offers seating for 10 people including the driver. Power for this gigantic people mover comes from a 3.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine which produces 134 hp at 3,400 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 1,200 rpm. A 4-speed auto box sends this power to the rear wheels.

A 2.7-liter petrol engine producing 148 hp and 241 Nm of torque is also available on the international Hiace.

The Toyota GT 86 is powered by a 2.0-liter Boxer engine producing 197 hp and 205 Nm of torque. Available with a manual or automatic transmission, the GT 86 is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 7.6 seconds (8.2 in case of automatic) and achieves a top-speed of 226 km/h (210 km/h for the automatic).

The GT 86 is a result of Toyota and Subaru coming together (Subaru calls theirs the BRZ). Toyota did not state if these models would come to India.
