Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
There are currently just two versions to pick from, the regular Supra and the Supra Pro. The former gets all the toys you really want and more, including adaptive suspension, an electronic limited slip differential, eight-speed automatic gearbox, dual-zone climate control, adaptive cruise, keyless entry and start, electric Alcantara covered seats with memory, LED lights and the 8.8in infotainment system mentioned earlier.
99% of buyers might be expected to go for Pro trim for its leather seats, better stereo, head-up display, wireless phone charging and ambient lighting, but we’d save our money and stick to the standard car. Whichever you go for, pricing is competitive against rival sports cars, but once you’ve factored in the standard equipment, it actually looks like fairly good value – relatively speaking of course.
Despite having a big motor up front, official economy is a reasonable 34.5mpg. Based on our experience with this engine in BMWs and on our test route, over 30mpg shouldn’t be too hard to achieve. Emissions of 170g/km do put the Supra in the top BIK tax bracket for company car tax, but that’s fairly typical for cars in this class.
Euro NCAP is yet to test the Supra for safety, but you certainly get plenty of kit to prevent a crash from happening. All models receive automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane departure alert, blind spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert and even smart parking sensors that’ll apply the brakes to avoid a manoeuvring collision.
