Geneva Motor Show 2019: Toyota Supra finally seen in the metal

Published 05 March 2019

After what seems like an eternity of teaser images and sneak peeks of camouflage-clad cars, the Toyota Supra has finally made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. Order books are open now, with prices starting at £52,695.

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 has a limited top speed of 155mph. All models come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while keen drivers can take control using paddles mounted behind the steering wheel.

The Supra uses an active differential, adaptive suspension and 19-inch alloy wheels with high performance brakes to provide a truly scintillating driving experience. 

Fuel consumption figures are still to be announced, but that doesn’t appear to matter because every single Supra model for 2019 has been sold. And Toyota already has a lengthy waiting list for 2020.

Strictly a two seater, the Supra has a driver focused 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 space for a golf bag.

Buyers can 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.

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.

It would be interesting if Toyota produced their version of the BMW Performance Power and Sound kit, already available in this application with M140i/M240i/440i, etc. No effects on BMW warranty/emissions.
