The 2020 Toyota Supra has only been available for a few weeks now after a harsh 21-year absence in the American car market and it’s already turning heads. Dealers near Tustin Auto Center have been getting a lot of requests for this show-stealing vehicle, and we are not surprised. A vehicle that operates with German technology, but has a Japanese body. When Japan meets Germany, you get more than a Sushi-Bratwurst. You get the perfect all in one car!
It’s time to experience the fifth generation of these sublime Toyota models. Dealers near Tustin Auto Center believe that this is a sports car that the world has been craving for. The 2020 Toyota Supra has a similar interior to its German counterpart with its calm and reserve aesthetics. The car’s power complies with its straight 6 heritage. The car derives its power from a German manufactured three-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine.
When the car is properly challenged, it can spring from zero to sixty miles per hour in about 4.1 seconds and has a 155 mile an hour top speed. Activating the car’s sport button spices things up – the steering gets a little bit heavier, the throttle response is more instantaneous, and if you get turned on by sound, you will hear more exhaust noise. Music to the ears of all true motorheads!
If you get over the exhaust sound but like the aspect of sports driving, you can customize that with the sports individual setting. When driving on less than perfect roads, you might feel some see-sawing action over bumps because of the car’s short wheelbase. However, that short wheelbase does provide bonuses when driving corners.
Dealers near Tustin Auto Center can vouch for the fact that the 2020 Toyota Supra is very light, agile and very quick. You can drive through tight maneuvers with great grip due to its tidy wheelbase. What’s great about the Supra is that even the most reasonably priced version gets all the cool performance features. Toyota has broken the Supra lineup to three levels called 3.0 and 3.0 Premium and Launch Edition. Each model comes with the turbocharged 3.0 liter inline 6 that stirs up 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque and transmits it to the rear wheels.
The standard features on the 3.0 model include a 6.5 inch touchscreen, keyless entry and starting, an 8.8-inch digital gauge cluster, satellite radio, a 10-speaker audio system with 205 watts of power, Bluetooth connectivity, an adaptive suspension, forward collision warning, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic LED headlights, launch control, shift paddles, and 19 inch forged aluminium wheels that fit Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
While the 3.0 Premium models take advantage of an 8.8-inch touchscreen with navigation, Supra Connect telematics, wireless Apple CarPlay (Android Auto isn’t available), wireless phone charging, a color head-up display, a 500-watt JBL audio system with 12 speakers, and bigger rear brakes.
When you take a closer look at the Toyota Supra’s infotainment system, you will notice that the rows of media and HVAC buttons run across the center console, and the iDrive controls look very similar to its Bavarian cousin. This arrangement makes the Supra’s dashboard look neat and simple, but at the same time sleek and sophisticated.
If you want a sports car that doesn’t send you to the chiropractor afterward, the Toyota Supra is your best bet. It has 14-way adjustable seats, which include 4-way lumbar and adjustable backrest width that is a standard feature. The seats have enough cushioning to keep the passengers comfortable during the energetic driving the Supra inspires. If you are taller than 6 feet and 3 inches, the leg room starts to become an issue. When passengers are that tall and over, the seats brush up against each other squeak. So, not an ideal car for lanky drivers.
The base Supra 3.0 is adorned with leather and Alcantara, whereas the Supra 3.0 Premium trims upgrade to complete leather, plus a bigger display and a more impressive sound system. Toyota has opted for a black theme for all Supras, except for the Red and White Launch Edition models. Those vehicles will have red seats. Nevertheless, all the dashboards are black and have beautifully stitched soft-touch surfaces and carbon-fiber trim. The options available are a head-up display and Toyota Supra Connect for remote app control and concierge services.
You can pop open the hatchback trunk from the button located on the driver’s door, or the key fob. You cannot open it from the trunk lid itself. When you open the Supra’s trunk, you will see the 10.2 cubic feet of cargo space that won’t amaze you, but is a pretty substantial amount of space from a sports car and will come in handy. It’s about the same total cargo volume that an average subcompact sedan’s trunk would have. The way Toyota design the hatchback trunk provides a pass-through to the rear to place longer items. The car’s visibility is tolerable, but the optional parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alerts in the Driver Assist Package are cherished.
It has been over twenty years since super die-hard Toyota Supra fans have seen a new model from this fleet of vehicles. So, without a doubt, it is going to be a tough audience to please. Many Supra fans will find it a hard pill to swallow that their beloved ride is Austrian built. However, when they get behind the wheel of this German-Japanese hybrid of a vehicle they will notice and begin to appreciate the result has created a product that has gone beyond any of their skeptical thoughts. So, haters please back off!
When you look at the 2020 Toyota Supra, it looks nothing like its older sister. Toyota has eliminated the iconic spoiler and simple, yet stylish design, for a more modern sports car appearance. The new Supra has an angular nose and triple-vent grille openings, which provide a more distinct head-on look. The car looks best at its side profile since it reveals the details of all the nooks and crannies which were inspired by Toyota’s FT-1.
In the back, the dual-LED tail lights, central brake light, and dual exhaust on both sides highlight the Supra’s width. The car is pretty wide at 73 inches. Just to compare, the Toyota 86 is only 69.9 inches wide. However, to know this car is to drive it. Dealers near Tustin Auto Center can hook you up with a free test drive, so you can see the 2020 Toyota Supra in action for yourself!
