The new-generation Toyota Supra debuted in 2020, and it’s already getting a slew of changes in 2021. Sure, the 2021 Supra will look the same, but it’ll gain a new base powertrain, an improved six-cylinder engine, a new special-edition trim, and more.
On the outside, the 2021 Toyota Supra will retain the sporty looks it debuted in 2020 with. This includes a long hood, swoopy roofline, and stubby backside. This gives it the classic sports-car proportions fans of this class seek. The only change for 2021 will be the new A91 Edition will gain a black carbon-fiber lip spoiler, matte-black wheels, C-pillar graphics, and carbon-fiber mirror caps. These special-edition models will be available in two colors, Nocturnal and Refraction.
Inside, the Toyota Supra boasts a simple but functional cabin that is mostly black with light silver accents, a dashtop infotainment screen, an electronic gear shifter, sport seats, and more. The only notable update inside will be an 8.8-inch touchscreen replacing the current standard 6.5-inch infotainment screen in all 2021 Supra models.
Like the exterior, the A91 Edition’s cabin will get a few updates, including black Alcantara with blue contrasts.
Under its hood is where the 2021 Supra will get its biggest upgrades, starting with the all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder base engine. This standard engine will produce 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This will deliver a five-second 0-60 mph time.
The Supra 3.0 will retain its 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine, but it gains new pistons and an upgraded exhaust manifold to push its output to 382 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. These are increases of 47 hp and 3 lb-ft, dropping its 0-60 time by 0.2 seconds to 3.9 seconds. The Supra 3.0 will also get a new chassis that includes revised dampers, new strut tower braces, an updated power steering system, updated front, and rear bump stops, and more.
The IIHS has not tested the current Supra, so there are no safety ratings yet. It does, however, have a long list of standard and available safety tech for a low-volume sports car. The standard safety tech includes forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and active lane control. Optionally, buyers can add adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, and front and rear parking sensors. We expect the safety features to remain the same in the 2021 Supra,
