The 2023 Toyota GR Supra is newly available with a manual transmission while all six-cylinder models receive revised steering, suspension, and brake tuning as well as a new Hairpin turn function. The previously optional active sport differential is standard and Track Mode has been recalibrated for more driving freedom (aka drifting). A new 12-speaker JBL sound system is available while the limited-edition A91(-MT) trim is back but only available with the manual transmission and is limited to 500 units.
2023 Toyota Supra
Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2023 Toyota Supra Overview
Choosing Your Toyota Supra
The Toyota Supra is available in four trims, 2.0, 3.0, 3.0 Premium, and A91-MT and prices range from $44,635 to $59,440.
The Supra offers two engines. The 2.0 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and is mated with an eight-speed automatic. The 3.0 and A91-MT are fitted with a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine that puts out 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque and can be fitted with either the eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual for no additional cost. The Toyota-developed manual transmission is met with a lower final gear ratio, revised traction control settings, and a rev-matching feature that can be turned off if desired. All Supras are rear-wheel drive.
The EPA hasn’t rated all variants of the Supra, however, the four-cylinder is expected to carry over its 2022 EPA-estimated 28 miles per gallon combined rating while the 2023 six-cylinder automatic actually improves upon last year's rating and delivers 26 MPG combined. The Supra with the manual transmission is not expected to achieve that same rating.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
Like its primary competitors, the Supra is a two-person car. Its length (172.5 inches) and width (73 inches) are nearly identical to the new Nissan Z. Inside, headroom (38.3 inches) is generous when compared to more expensive sports cars such as the Chevrolet Corvette and Jaguar F-Type but is nearly matched by the new Nissan. The Supra’s hatchback configuration helps to make the most of its 10.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
The Supra features basic active safety features such as automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, automatic high beams, and rain-sensing wipers as standard. All trims offer adaptive cruise control (full-speed on the automatic-transmission models only), blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and parking sensors.
All trims are equipped with an 8.8-inch touchscreen display with a console-mounted controller, SiriusXM, Bluetooth, remote services, and navigation. The 3.0 gains six additional speakers (for a total of 10) while the 3.0 Premium and A91-MT trims receive a new 12-speaker 500-watt sound system with Apple CarPlay and wireless charging.
The base Supra is well equipped with full exterior LED lighting with auto-leveling headlights, 18-inch wheels, gloss-black heated power-folding and auto-dimming (driver’s side only) door mirrors with integrated turn signals, dual exhaust outlets with stainless steel tips, and proximity entry as standard. The interior features black microfiber and leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, an 8.8-inch digital gauge cluster, eight-way manually adjustable heated seats, knee support cushions, carbon fiber trim, and dual-zone climate control. Toyota also includes a one-day lesson at a high-speed performance school.
The Safety & Technology Package adds additional safety equipment for $2,815 and the Safety & Technology Plus JBL package further adds the premium audio system for $3,485.
The 3.0 trim is equipped with a series of performance upgrades beyond the engine such as additional chassis bracing, adaptive dampers, an active rear differential, and 19-inch wheels that allow for larger brakes with Brembo calipers. Matte black mirrors, brushed stainless steel exhaust tips, and power-adjustable seats with memory and heating are also included.
The Safety & Technology Package is offered for the same price as in the base model and is automatically included when the manual transmission is selected.
The 3.0 Premium features red-painted Brembo calipers, leather sport seats, brushed aluminum pedals, and a full-color head-up display.
The Driver’s Assist Package is offered for $1,195 and is included with manual transmission models.
The 2023-exclusive A91-MT Edition is limited to 500 units, is only available in North America, and is equipped exclusively with manual transmission. It features a carbon fiber front splitter, side rockers, and rear spoiler, a red strut tower brace, red badging, matte black 19-inch wheels, and is offered in two unique colors (matte white and gray). Inside, the tan leather sport seats and an Alcantara GR shift lever are also unique. The Driver’s Assist Package is included.
The six-cylinder brings the performance to match the Supra’s fast looks and the Premium trim adds several meaningful creature comforts that make it worth the added cost.
