If you order a new Toyota Supra right now, you could only get a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in your engine bay. But in the future, it will be possible to enjoy a 2.0-liter as well. But do you want that?
It really sounds BMW-ish, bringing a 2.0-liter four-cylinder to the sportscar. The reason we say so? BMW also offers that same 2.0-liter in their Z4 and everyone knows the Z4 and Supra are very very related –we can’t say it’s the same car. Cost efficiency, it’s a very good decision.
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder with turbo produces 258 hp and 400 Nm torque. That will make it possible to hit 100 km/h in just 5,2 seconds. Rear-wheel drive and a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox come as standard. The top speed of the four-cylinder Supra is 250 km/h.
Giving the Toyota Supra a smaller engine reduces the car’s weight by 100 kg and that on his turn improves handling. It will also be cheaper to buy and cheaper to run. The car will have a consumption figure of 5,9l/100km (NEDC 2.0).
Smart move or sacrilege?
