This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:
In May 1983, as other cars followed the trends and adopted the FF format in its full model change. But the sports model within the Corolla/Sprinter line-up was the sole exception, keeping the FR. This was the Corolla Levin and the Sprinter Trueno. You are familiar with the model name as AE86. This model gained popularity at the time as the final lightweight FR. The two body types offered were a 3-door hatchback and a 2-door notchback coupe. The difference between the two is the front mask, with the Levin using a combination of an orthodox grille and square headlights, and the Trueno using no grille and retractable lights. The loaded engine was a newly developed 1.6-litre 4A-GEU model inline 4-cylinder DOHC. The airflow meter was eliminated to enhance the benefits of the DOHC. Using an EFI-D (which calculates fuel using a pressure sensor) and a T-VIS (Toyota Variable Induction System) on the intake port resulted in producing 130ps / 15.2kgm. The suspension uses MacPherson struts in the front and a lateral rod 4-link/coil rigid axle in the rear. Actually, the engine does not have very much power or torque, and the motor performance is not tremendous, but the smooth acceleration and snappy response add up to an extraordinary drive. The steering and stability limits are not particularly high, but that allows plenty of freedom in position control. The comfortable ride is definitely exclusively an FR experience. The specs would indicate this car to be an ordinary machine, but the sheer fun and exuberance of the drive cannot be described with numbers. That is what makes such a great car.
