2021 Toyota Supra: More powerful I6, entry level I4 & A91 edition added

It’s only a year old, and the J29 Toyota Supra range has a revised engine lineup in the US with a first ever 4-cylinder and a more powerful BMW 6-cylinder.

The entry level Toyota Supra 2.0 was previously only available in Japan and Asian markets. It has a 2.0L BMW turbo I4 with 190kW (255hp) and 400Nm (295 lb-ft), 8-speed auto, and RWD.

The 0-60mph time is a very good 5s, and top speed is 249km/h (155mph).

The Supra 2.0 over 90kg (200lb) lighter than the Supra 3.0 at 1,443kg (3,181lb), has 50:50 weight distribution. Some of the lost weight comes from the reduced spec. The stereo only has 4 speakers, the seats don’t have electric adjustment, it has smaller 18″ aluminum wheels, and it misses out on the I6’s Active Differential and Adaptive Suspension.

For 2021 the Supra 3.0 now has a more powerful 3L turbo I6 (6 ports instead of 2, and a dual branch exhaust manifold) shared with the BMW Z4 M40i.

It has 285kW (382hp) and 499Nm (368 lb-ft), an 8-speed auto, and 0-60mph in 3.9s. The less powerful I6 has been discontinued in the US, but will remain as the only I6 option in Europe due to emissions regulations.

Standard features include 19″ forged aluminum wheels, aluminum strut braces, front and rear bump stops, new damper tuning, a revised power steering setup, adaptive variable suspension and active differential tuning.

There’s also a new A91 Edition model limited to just 1,000 cars. Available in just two colors: Refraction, which is exclusive to the A91, and Nocturnal.

It comes standard with the new more powerful I6.

Because it’s special edition, the A91 has branded key gloves, trunk mat and C-pillar graphics. There’s also matte black wheels, black carbonfiber rear lip spoiler and mirror caps, and red front Brembo brakes with Supra logos.

There interior has black Alcantara and leather trim with blue contrast highlights.
