*Disclosure: The 2020 Toyota GR Supra (luxury sports car) was provided to me for testing purposes and editorial consideration. All opinions are 100% my own*
If 2020 were candy it would be black licorice in my opinion, and mind you I hate black licorice. However, outside of all of the weird shenanigans that’s going on, there have been a few memorable moments that helped redirected my energy in a more positive direction.
One of those moments being when the 2020 Toyota GR Supra arrived at my doorstep for a test drive.
Yep, after a 16 year hiatus, the legendary coupe is back, reborn and in full effect. Although, this go around Toyota added a welcomed twist and joined forces with BMW to co-develop the luxury sport car. Which, in fact makes the reintroduction very hard to ignore.
The 2020 Supra is highly based on the BMW Z4’s underpinnings (the engine and suspension of the Z4). Although they both use the same platform and powertrain, they aim to satisfy different consumers.
Brief Production History:
- The initial four generations of the Supra were produced from 1978 to 2002 (North America = Discontinued in 1998, Japan = Discontinued in 2002).
- The fifth generation (Toyota/BWM Collab) has been produced since March 2019 to present.
Honestly, there isn’t much to dislike about the Luxury Sports Car.
However, during my time with the coupe there are a few things that stood out more than others.
Check them out below…
- The BMW collaboration: Making the vehicle all the sweeter.
- Sport mode: Love the throaty, rumbly sound when in this mode.
- Exceptional drive experience: Punchy acceleration and crisp/responsive steering. The highway experience is insane.
- The spacious cabin: There’s amble head, leg and elbow room throughout the cabin. I was completely impressed.
- Heads up display with turn by turn directions (navigation package must be added).
- A user-friendly standard 6.5-inch infotainment system.
- Comfortable seats: Its hip-hugging seats are quite supportive yet comfy enough for road trips.
- Hatchback trunk with the open pass-through to the front.
- Dope rims
Note: Entry and exit can be a bit awkward, but that can be said for most sports car. So be prepared.
