Thinking of leasing a Toyota Supra?

The U.S. News Best Price Program saves users an average of $3,206 off the MSRP, and a lower price equals lower monthly lease payments. That means you could see a savings of $90 a month on a 36-month lease.

Is the Toyota Supra a Good Car?

Yes, the 2021 Toyota Supra is a great luxury sports car. The Supra’s mix of punchy accleration, agile handling, and quick steering make it a blast to drive on curvy roads. The interior is stylish and well-trimmed, and the seats provide ample cushioning and space for occupants of all sizes. The Supra is also fairly practical by sports car standards. It has a roomy trunk, many safety features, a user-friendly infotainment system, and good fuel economy. Better still, the Supra rates well for predicted reliability.

All in all, there isn’t much to dislike about the Supra. It can be awkward to get in and out of, and its rear visiblity is limited, but the same can be said of most sports cars.

Should I Buy the Toyota Supra?

You should at least consider the Supra if you’re shopping for a luxury sports car. It offers a lot of performance and refinement at a price that’s hard to beat. The new entry-level Supra 2.0 starts at just $42,990. If that’s still out of your price range, you may want to consider Toyota’s nonluxury sports car: the Toyota GT86.

2020 vs. 2021 Toyota Supra: What's the Difference?

There are a few key differences between the 2020 and 2021 Supra models. Toyota launched the fifth-generation Supra for 2020 – the first Supra in two decades – and it came outfitted with a 335-horsepower six-cylinder engine. For 2021, Toyota adds a 255-horsepower four-cylinder engine to the lineup and increases the output of the six-cylinder engine to 382 horsepower. A limited-run Supra A91 Edition debuts as well, and Toyota swaps the previously standard 6.5-inch infotainment screen for an 8.8-inch unit.

Compare the 2020 and 2021 Supra »

Here are the key changes for the Toyota Supra since it was redesigned for 2020:

  • 2020: fully redesigned (start of fifth generation); officially called "GR Supra"
  • 2021: four-cylinder engine now available; six-cylinder engine gains 47 horsepower; now comes standard with larger infotainment screen; A91 Edition introduced

How Much Does the Toyota Supra Cost?

The 2021 Toyota Supra costs $42,990 in its base trim level, making it the least expensive car in the luxury sports car class. Upgrading to the Supra’s inline-six engine raises the price by about $8,000, though that still undercuts many rivals, including the Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche Cayman.

Toyota Supra Versus the Competition

Toyota Supra vs. BMW Z4          

The BMW Z4 has a lot in common with the Supra. That’s because BMW and Toyota worked together to develop these luxury sports cars. Pop the hood of either car, and you’ll find the same four- and six-cylinder engine options, eight-speed transmissions, and other drivetrain and chassis components. There are enough differences to make each car feel unique though. The Supra is a fixed-roof coupe, and its handling feels a bit sharper than the Z4, which is a soft-top convertible. Both cars also have different interiors, warranties, and prices. The Supra starts at around $43,000 while the Z4 costs nearly $50,000. Both are great cars, but the Supra is a much better value.

Toyota Supra vs. Chevrolet Corvette

The redesigned Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the best luxury sports cars on the market. It has a powerful V8 engine, razor-sharp handling, supercar looks, and an almost futuristic interior. If it’s outright performance you’re looking for, the Corvette is the one to buy. On the other hand, if you have a tighter budget or want lots of active safety features, the Supra is a better pick. It offers features like adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking that the Corvette doesn’t. Additionally, the Supra costs around $16,000 less than the entry-level Corvette.

Supra Performance: Raising the Bar

Supra Engine

The 2021 Toyota Supra is offered with two engine options: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six. The base four-cylinder engine feels a lot brawnier than its 255-horsepower rating would suggest. It zips the Supra up to speed swiftly, offers strong passing power on the highway, and responds quickly to throttle inputs. It’s nicely complemented by the Supra’s eight-speed automatic transmission, which fires off prompt, slick gear changes. It’s a great engine overall, but it doesn’t rev as effortlessly or roar as fiercely as the six-cylinder. If you don’t mind spending a bit more money, that’s the engine to get. It provides breakneck acceleration, and it keeps pulling hard even at high rpm.

Toyota Supra Powertrain/Performance Options
  • Base engine: 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque; starts at $42,990 (Supra 2.0)
  • Available engine: 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder with 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque; starts at $50,990 (Supra 3.0)
  • Drivetrain: rear-wheel drive
  • Transmission: eight-speed automatic
Supra Gas Mileage

The six-cylinder Supra 3.0 gets an EPA-rated 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which is great for a luxury sports car. The four-cylinder Supra 2.0 is expected to earn better ratings, but EPA estimates aren’t yet available.

Supra Ride and Handling

The Supra offers a great driving experience. Its steering is crisp and responsive, the car feels agile around turns, and there’s minimal body lean during hard cornering. Additionally, its brakes slow the car down confidently. There is a difference in ride quality between the 2.0 and 3.0 models though. The Supra 3.0 is equipped with an adaptive suspension that can quickly stiffen and soften its shock absorbers, allowing the car to comfortably soak up bumps and dips without dulling its handling. The Supra 2.0 isn’t offered with this setup. It’s still pleasant to drive on rougher road surfaces, but you’ll feel more jitters and jolts without these adaptive dampers.

How Fast Is the Toyota Supra?

The four-cylinder Supra 2.0 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in five seconds. The six-cylinder Supra 3.0 can sprint to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. Both Supra models have an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

Does the Toyota Supra Have All-Wheel Drive?

No, the Toyota Supra is not available with all-wheel drive. If you would prefer a luxury sports car with all-wheel drive, consider the Audi TT, Nissan GT-R, or certain Jaguar F-Type models.

Supra Interior: Fits Like a Glove

Supra Cargo Space

The Supra has 10.2 cubic feet of trunk space. That may not sound like much, but the Supra’s liftback design and wide trunk lid make it a pretty usable space. There’s enough room for a pair of carry-on bags or duffle bags.

How Many People Does the Supra Seat?

The Toyota Supra is a two-seat sports car. Its hip-hugging seats are quite supportive yet cushy enough for longer trips. The seating position is comfortable as well, and there’s adequate headroom and legroom for taller occupants. Leather upholstery and manually adjustable seats are standard. Options include heated and power-adjustable seats.

On the downside, the Supra’s small windows and thick roof pillars limit visibility to the side and rear, and the low roofline can make it awkward to get in and out of the car without bumping your head. These critiques are common for sports cars though.

Supra Interior Quality

The Supra has a sleek interior design with clean lines and mostly high-end materials, like padded upholstery, metal accents, and soft plastic. A dark interior color palatte contributes to the Supra’s sporty appearance. The cabin filters out most wind and road noise, even at higher speeds, but there is considerable wind buffeting with the windows down.

Supra Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The Supra comes standard with an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, which is controlled using a knob and touchpad on the center console. Toyota calls this system Supra Command, but it’s essentially BMW’s iDrive system. The menus are straightforward, and the graphics are sharp. It’s pretty easy to use when driving, thanks in part to the physical buttons and knobs for the main audio and climate controls. Upgrading to the available navigation system adds touch sensitivity to the screen and support for Apple CarPlay. Android Auto is not available.

For more information, read What Is Apple CarPlay? and What Is Android Auto?

  • Standard infotainment features: an 8.8-inch display, a digital gauge cluster, four speakers, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a USB port
  • Available infotainment features: an 8.8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, navigation, 10- and 12-speaker sound systems, and a smartphone charging pad
  • Additional standard features: keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and cruise control

Supra Dimensions and Weight

The GR Supra is 14.4 feet long. Its curb weight ranges from 3,181 to 3,400 pounds, depending on configuration.

Where Is the 2021 Toyota Supra Built?

The Toyota Supra is built in Austria.

When Did the Toyota Supra First Come Out?

Toyota lauched the Supra in 1978 as a higher-performance version of its Celica sports car. The Celica Supra featured an inline six-cylinder engine, two-door coupe styling, and a rear-wheel-drive layout, a formula that would define all Supra models to follow. This generation became known as the A40. The second-generation A60 Celica Supra arrived in 1982, and it featured boxier styling, pop-up headlights, and a punchier version of the A40’s straight-six engine.

The third-generation A70 Supra debuted in 1986, and for the first time, it was no longer related to the Celica. This generation also brought updates like a turbocharged engine and an electronically adjustable suspension. The fourth-generation A80 Supra is the most popular iteration by far. It arrived in 1993 with smoother styling and Toyota’s now-famous 2JZ engine. Major screentime in the "Fast and Furious" movies helped cement the A80 Supra in popular culture. Toyota ended production of the fourth-generation Supra in 1998.

The current fifth-generation Supra arrived for the 2020 model year and shares most of its chassis and drivetrain components with the BMW Z4. Toyota markets the Supra under its Gazoo Racing sub-brand, or "GR" for short.

Which Toyota Supra Model Is Right for Me?

The 2021 Toyota Supra is available in four trim levels: 2.0, 3.0, 3.0 Premium, and A91 Edition. We think the entry-level Supra 2.0 is the best pick for most buyers. It has a punchy four-cylinder engine, many standard features, and a starting price under $43,000. That’s a good value, and it makes the Supra the least expensive car in this often pricey class.

If you want true high-performance though, you should spend a bit more and opt for one of the Supra 3.0 trims. These models are equipped with a powerful inline-six engine, as well as a few features that aren’t available in the base model, like an adaptive suspension and a limited-slip differential.

Toyota Supra 2.0

The 2021 Toyota Supra 2.0 has a $42,990 starting price. The Supra 2.0 is equipped with a 255-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles, and rear-wheel drive. Standard features include an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, a digital gauge cluster, HD Radio, satellite radio, four speakers, a USB port, Bluetooth, keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, manually adjustable seats, heated side mirrors, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights with automatic high beams, a rearview camera, forward collsion warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist.

An optional Safety and Technology package is available for $3,485, and it includes a touch-screen navigation system, Apple CarPlay, a 12-speaker JBL stereo, parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control.

Toyota Supra 3.0

The Supra 3.0 trim has an MSRP of $50,990. It features a 382-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engine, a limited-slip differential, an adaptive suspnesion, larger brakes, 19-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable seats, and a 10-speaker stereo. The Safety and Technology package is optional, albeit at a lower $3,155 price.

Toyota Supra 3.0 Premium

The Supra 3.0 Premium trim costs $54,490. This trim adds heated seats, a head-up display, a touch screen, Apple CarPlay, navigation, a smartphone charging pad, and a 12-speaker stereo. An optional Driver’s Assist package is available for $1,195, and it includes parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control.

Toyota Supra A91 Edition

The Supra A91 Edition has an MSRP of $55,990. This trim gains leather and Alcantara seats with blue accents, a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, carbon fiber side mirrors, C-pillar stripe decals, and matte black 19-inch wheels. Production is limited to 500 models in Nocturnal Black paint and 500 models in Refraction Blue. The Driver’s Assist package is optional for $1,195.

The Final Call

The 2021 Toyota Supra ticks every box on the luxury sports car checklist. It’s fast and a joy to drive on scenic switchback roads, while still comfortable and practical in day-to-day commuting. Its infotainment system is easy to use, and there are lots of standard tech and safety features. The Supra rates well for predicted reliability, and it’s very affordable by class standards. Sure, many of its rivals offer more performance options, luxurious amenities, or exclusivity, but none can replicate the Supra’s value proposition.

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "The upgrades to the 2021 Toyota GR Supra make it an even more attractive choice to a wider range of budgets. We like the new Supra 2.0's punchy performance and nimble handling and are smitten with the additional power and handling upgrades for the 3.0 car. The 2021 Supra's styling may be polarizing, but its balance and capability are most certainly not." -- Edmunds
  • "The verdict: The 2021 Toyota Supra’s new four-cylinder makes the sporty coupe more accessible, but the six-cylinder’s attitude and raucousness is the best way to get the Supra experience." -- Cars.com
  • "So is this miracle of automotive husbandry worthy of the Supra name? Heck, yeah. It reinvents the concept in a guise that make sense for today's world, and it's offered at a price … that's a relative bargain when measured against both its predecessor and its Porsche competitor." -- Motor Trend (2020)
