The fans had a chance to witness the concept of the next-generation Toyota Supra at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. In fact, Toyota revealed its GR Supra Racing concept, but the regular Supra has also been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 model. The return of this popular sports car will happen thanks to the partnership of Toyota and BMW.
- more than one engine choice,
- possible hybrid version.
- available with an automatic transmission only.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Supra, this model is going to hit the market as a sports coupe with excellent performance. The body design is said to be largely inspired by the well-known FT1 concept, revealed earlier at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Therefore, you can expect some really race-inspired and aggressive features on the next-generation Supra, especially in its front fascia. Be that as it may, the new Supra will ride on a brand-new platform shared with the upcoming BMW Z4 roadster. The collaboration with BMW can be seen in terms of this rear-wheel drive platform and engine choices, but we will mention them later on. All in all, the new Supra will get much sportier and edgier look, especially in its high-performance and top trim levels.
Honestly, little has been known of the interior that the 2019 Toyota Supra will offer. We believe that the new Supra will share lots of inside features with other Toyota’s models, but also provide some unique details. Its cabin will provide two seats covered in some high-quality fabric, even leather in higher trim levels. The seats should be supportive and adjustable and offer a sense of safety and stability during those wild rides. The new Supra will probably combine these sporty features with some luxurious and elegant ones. It will also upgrade its high-tech area, including its instrument cluster and center console, but also provide the advanced safety systems and driver assist features.
Three engine choices have been considered when it comes to 2019 Toyota Supra. This sports car will probably come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder shared with BMW 3Series and 4Series. It delivers the output of 181 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. The other version might come with the same, but more powerful four-cylinder that will hit 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the top trims should get a 3.0-liter turbo inline-six that produces 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. A hybrid option has also been speculated. The new Supra will get an automatic transmission only.
