With the official local unveiling set for tomorrow (Tuesday 16 July), the local Supra line-up will consist out of three models, all powered by the same 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six engine as its co-developed sibling, the BMW Z4 M40i, and which produces 250kW/500Nm.
An eight-speed automatic gearbox is the sole transmission option with Toyota claiming a limited top speed of 250 km/h and 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. Claimed combined fuel consumption is rated at 7.7 L/100 km with the taxable emissions at 177 g/km.
Based on the details released on Toyota’s website, the range starts off with the GR Track whose standard features list includes 19-inch alloy wheels, a leather wrapped three-spoke multi-function steering wheel, aluminium scuff plates, an electrochromatic rear-view mirror, dual-zone climate control, a 10-speaker sound system, cruise control, a reverse camera, daytime running LEDs and electrically retractable mirrors.
On the safety front, the Track comes with a Tyre Pressure Monitor, Hill Start Assist, Traction Control, ABS with EBD, Vehicle Stability Control, auto lock/unlock doors, auto-levelling headlight and push-button start.
Sitting in the middle, the simply titled GR Supra swaps the Track’s fabric seats for Alcantara covered chairs and also adds Adaptive Cruise Control, a 12-speaker JBL sound system, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, a wireless smartphone charger, heated front seats, Heads-Up Display, satellite navigation, Pre-Crash Alert, Park Distance Control, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic High Beam LED headlights and the Adaptive Variable Suspension system.
At the top-end, the so-called Matte Grey effectively mirrors the GR’s spec level with the only distinguishing feature being its Matte Strom Grey colour option.
