    Would rather buy the Subaru inspired Toyota 86 and keep the change. It will run circles around this outdated trolley.

      LOL! All the thumbsdowns based on what? Comparison: T-86: R335K for the High-Spec Model; RWD; 147KW Boxer Tech; 6MT vs. T-Trolley: R392K without extras; FWD; 118KW Previous Gen Tech; 6MT Yeah, proves how many eggplants roam the planet.
