2020 Toyota Supra
What is the Toyota Supra? And why does that name sound familiar? The Supra is a sports car and grand tourer that ran from 1978 to 2002. You may have spotted one in the Fast and Furious film series. Well, now the Supra is back just in time for 2020. If you’ve been following auto industry news, you may have heard of the teases about bringing back the Supra for almost a decade now. Well pigs must be flying because this isn’t a tease, but a reality. And we have the details to prove it.
Under the Hood
Let’s not beat around the bush. You want to know if the engines are any good. That’s what makes or breaks a sports car. Well, breathe a sigh of relief and wipe a tear from your eye when you hear the good news. The 2020 Toyota Supra’s engine is excellent. We’re talking about a 335-horsepower six-cylinder churning out 365 pound-feet of torque. That’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and that’s with rear-wheel drive. What’s more, first testers are saying that Toyota is playing it safe with those numbers and the actual output is substantially more. But how fast is it, you ask? How about going zero to 60 in just 3.8 sweet seconds. Let the Supra go all out and watch this Toyota sports car shred the quarter mile in just 12.3 seconds. That’s better than the fourth-generation Supra, and BMW sports cars have nothing on this Toyota.
The Toyota Supra looks like the car of the future. The bubble roof is both aerodynamic and distinctive. The grille looks ready to eat some road. And the sculpted sides are pure beauty. At the time of this writing, only a coupe was in the works for the Toyota Supra. You convertible lovers might have to wait for a season or two. Sit inside and you’ll find a fighter jet cockpit ready to fly. There’s not a lot of room in there, being a sports car after all. But the double-bubble roof affords a bit more headroom. Overall, the cabin looks great with high-quality materials and immaculate fit and finish.
The standard features are plentiful and generous as well, including 6.5-inch center touchscreen multimedia system with Bluetooth and Alcantara trimmed seats, collision warning, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and a feature that recognizes road signs as standard. Upgrade to the Premium variant to get a larger touchscreen multimedia system (8.8 inches), standard navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, 12-speaker JBL stereo sound system, wireless phone charging, color head-up display, and heated leather seats.
Buy the 2020 Toyota Supra and you’ll have a blast every day of your life. So go and test one now, if you’re ready for a thrill ride.
