Toyota Supra (2019): At A Glance
Officially badged the GR Supra (GR stands for Gazoo Racing), the new Toyota Supra shares a platform and factory with the latest BMW Z4.
Powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine producing a hefty 340PS and 500Nm of torque, the new Supra will cover 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds and have a limited top speed of 155mph. Fuel consumption figures are yet to be announced.
All models will come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while keen drivers can take control using paddles mounted behind the steering wheel.
It’ll be a strict two seater, and these new images show what appears to be a rather slick cabin. The low, slim dashboard is said to improve forward visibility for the driver, while an 8.8-inch multimedia screen can be operated by touch or using a rotary controller.
Toyota says the boot space is large enough for two people’s luggage for a weekend away and can be extended with a removable panel at the back of the cabin, creating enough room for a golf bag.
At launch, buyers will choose between two trim levels: the standard Supra 3.0L and the Supra 3.0L Pro. Priced from £52,695, the standard car features navigation, adaptive cruise control and the Supra Safety+ package, incorporating intelligent parking sensors with automatic braking as well a rear-cross traffic alert and other useful safety features.
It also comes with an active differential, adaptive suspension and 19-inch alloy wheels with high performance brakes, as well as rain-sensing wipers and a rear-view camera. The standard sports seats are upholstered in black Alcantara and are power-adjustable (including lumbar support), with integrated heating and memory functions.
The majority of UK sales are expected to be the Supra 3.0L Pro grade, which costs £54,000 and adds black leather seats, a 12-speaker JBL premium sound system, head-up display, wireless mobile phone charger and storage and lighting packs.
A limited run of 24 Supra 3.0L A90 Edition models will be sold in the UK. This is priced at £56,945 and features a matt grey paint finish, along with matt black alloy wheels and an interior finished in red leather. This will be offered to UK customers who have already placed a pre-sales reservation.
