Toyota Motor had confirmed that the next edition of Supra will come out as 2020 Supra Model Year, There a lot of modifications that Toyota did to make The Upcoming 2020 Supra look more sporty outside and well luxury inside. So with this article, we will see closer how the 2020 Toyota Supra will be.
For the outside look, The bumper of 2020 Supra will come with unique design, with an almost square center vent flanked by larger outlets onto the sides. Toyota designers added two angled, vertical vents at the outer edges of the headlamps too, a feature seemingly inspired by Lexus roadsters. An aggressive splitter with vertical canards onto the sides rounds off the front fascia. The headlamps are particularly interesting due to their six-lens design with integrated daytime running lights and turn signals.
The Supra is notably shorter though, while the roofline isn’t as aggressive. The rear fenders retain the original design though, giving the coupe a muscular look. On the other hand, the vent in the door is smaller and fake, with no actual purpose. Another vent was added to the side panels of the engine hood, a feature unique to this model.
The Supra also borrows the black A-pillars and the double-bubble roof from the FT-1 concept. Toyota says the latter is actually a tribute to the iconic 1967 2000 GT. This is a common feature among race cars and it’s become popular with road-legal sports cars in recent years.
Interior of The 2020 Supra
Early interior spy shots revealed quite a few features borrowed from the BMW Z4, on which the Supra is based under the skin. The Japanese coupe had an identical steering wheel, gear selector, and instrument cluster graphics. Toyota revised these features, but they’re still obviously based on the Z4. Thankfully, the dashboard sports a unique design. Low and narrow, it’s the kind of dash you’d expect to see in a proper sports car. Toyota nailed it, going with a simple and clean design. The infotainment display placed high above the center stack is a bit disruptive, but the design remains attractive overall.
The center stack is also somewhat clean. The upper tier includes two A/C vents, while the lower tier features to command panels. The one in the middle is obviously borrowed from the Z4. The center console also seems similar to the BMW’s, especially the revised gear selector and the big knob on the passenger side. The console itself is asymmetrical, with an additional separation wall on the driver’s side, for a driver-centric layout.

The Supra’s interior looks modern and it’s definitely oriented toward the premium market. However, it’s not as fancy as the BMW Z4 it’s based on, with much of the metal trim replaced by hard plastic in the Japanese car.
Toyota offers a turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline-six engine. Shared with the BMW Z4, the twin-scroll turbo unit produces 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of twist.The inline-six mates to the same eight-speed automatic that BMW offers in the Z4. This gearbox enables the Supra to charge from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds.
Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph, on par with the BMW Z4 and many sports cars available right now. The 718 Cayman is faster though, with top speeds ranging from 170 for the base model to 177 mph for the S version.
Productions & Price Estimate For 2020 Supra
The Supra would be built in Austria. Toyota Europe R&D chief Gerald Killmann said that the Supra “will not be a cheap car.” He said this to create a clear space between it and the more-affordable Toyota 86, which starts at $26,255.
Toyota has now confirmed that its new sports car will start at $49,990 plus $930 for destination charge. But that’s for a version powered by the 3.0-liter inline-six. The four-cylinder model should cost less.
