Toyota Supra 2020 review: GT snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.4
After a long absence the Toyota Supra is back in fifth generation (A90) form.

After a long absence the Toyota Supra is back in fifth generation (A90) form.

With bulges and curves everywhere, the new Supra’s distinctive exterior tips its hat to the iconic Toyota 2000GT of the late 1960s with its ‘double bubble’ roof, long bonnet and short cabin, as well as the previous A80 Supra that’s been such a hit in the grey market here, but was never officially imported by Toyota Australia.

Strictly a two-seater, the Supra offers plenty of space for its occupants, but storage space is modest. That said, the boot looks bigger than Toyota’s stated 290-litre (VDA) volume and there’s more than enough (soft) luggage room for a cheeky weekend away.

The Supra GT kicks off a two-model range at $84,900, plus on-road costs. And that buys a lengthy standard features list including: ‘leather-accented’, heated and eight-way power-adjustable sports seats, a leather-accented sports steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, an 8.8-inch multimedia touchscreen (managing the 10-speaker audio system - including digital radio - sat nav, ventilation, and more), keyless entry and start, auto LED headlights, LED tail-lights and DRLs, rear LED fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, 18-inch machined alloy wheels, an 8.8-inch ‘Multi Information’ digital instrument display, plus heated and folding electric exterior mirrors.

The Supra is powered by a BMW-sourced 3.0-litre, single-turbo engine with drive going to the rear wheels via an eight-speed auto transmission. Maximum power is 250kW, available between 5000-6000rpm, and peak torque of 500Nm is delivered across a broad plateau from just 1600rpm all the way to 4500rpm. 

Claimed fuel economy for the combined (ADR 81/02 - urban, extra-urban) cycle is 7.7L/100km, the Supra emitting 177g/km of CO2 in the process.

Balanced, stable and seriously rapid the Supra is huge fun to drive, yet civilised enough for daily driving.

With the need for speed comes the need for top-shelf safety, and the new Supra features an impressive array of standard active and passive safety tech.

Toyota Australia has confirmed it’s supporting Supra with the brand’s standard five year/unlimited kilometre warranty, extending to seven years with the ‘Service Advantage’

Capped price servicing locks in an annual service cost of $385 per service for the first five years of ownership. Service interval is 12 months/15,000km.

A price close to a hundred kay is not to be sneezed at, but the A90 Supra delivers performance and dynamics to challenge sports cars costing twice as much.
