We now know how much the all-new Toyota Supra will cost when it hits Canadian showrooms this summer.
The 2020 Toyota Supra will start at $64,990 when it launches in Canada later this year.
And that’s not all. Pre-orders begin now and apparently only 300 units will come to Canada. We’re not sure if that means only 300 2020 model year Toyota Supra units will be available in Canada or for the entirety of the production run. More than likely, it’s 300 for the 2020 Supra.
We couldn’t find a press release confirming the news as of writing, but we spoke with a Toyota Canada rep who confirmed the Supra’s starting price. As we wait to get more info on the various trims and features, let’s look at what we do know about the 2020 Toyota Supra starting with the engine.
New Supras in other markets will have a choice of engines, but Canadian units only get a 3.0-liter straight-six with 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. No manual gearbox, just an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters that sends the engine’s power to the rear wheels.
Two driving modes, Normal and Sport, will give the driver some control on how the new Supra handles itself.
Measuring about 100 mm less than the Toyota 86, the two-seat 2020 Supra features a near 50/50 weight distribution along with a lower center of gravity than the 86. Although Toyota built the Supra to be a proper performance car, the Japanese automaker also mentions that it will be comfortable and usable as a daily driver.
Standard features include: Keyless Smart Entry, dual automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, rear camera, rain sensor windshield wipers, garage door opener, power folding mirrors, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
At $64,990, the Supra with the turbocharged straight-6 3.0-litre engine is $2,240 more expensive than the base 2019 BMW Z4 sDrive30i. Could the new Supra then turn out to be a bargain Z4 sDrive40i without the drop-top?
We’re as eager to find out as you all. More on this when more information becomes available.
