The 2021 Toyota GR Supra comes with a new engine option and a special edition trim. The 2021 Toyota GR Supra is now powered by a 255 hp, 2.0-liter turbo-four in the base trim while the higher trims get a 385 hp, 3.0-liter turbo-six under their hood. The base Supra manages 0-60 mph in five seconds while the turbo-six powered Supra drops the time to under four seconds. Coming to the exterior we don’t see any changes for this year as the changes are all under the skin.

While the interior follows the same suit except for the touchscreen infotainment system which has now grown in size from 6.5-inches to an 8.8-inch unit. Overall the cabin space is tight and the infotainment system is still not the best. As for the cargo area, it is pretty decent and can gobble four carry-on suitcases with ease. That said, the 2021 Toyota GR Supra has a starting price of $43,090 and rivals the likes Audi TT and Mercedes-Benz C-Class

We Recommend:

For those who are looking for a sporty daily driver that can run errands and do occasional highway runs, we recommend sticking to the Supra 2.0 trim. As for under forty-five grand you get essential features and won’t miss out much except for the more power and performance from the turbo-six. For those who can spend fifty grand on a Supra, our recommendation is to take the Supra 3.0 as it is the most value for money trim with a turbo-six. 

2021 Toyota GR Supra Engine and Performance

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra offers two engine options. The base GR Supra which also goes by Supra 2.0 gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine which is good enough for 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The trim above the base and higher ones get a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine that churns out 385 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. Both the engine options are mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox along with paddle shifters. 

Irrespective of the trim the 2021 Toyota GR Supra is only available in RWD configuration. While the active rear sport differential is standard on all except the base trim. The 2021 Toyota GR Supra manages 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds and the quarter-mile comes at 13.2 seconds from its 2.0-liter four-bangers. While the 3.0-liter turbo-six powered Supra does 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds

On paper, none of the rivals offer higher power and torque figures compared to the Supra. The Audi TT puts out 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque from its turbo-four which is the lowest figure in this comparison. As for the C-Class, it produces 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque from its four-bangers and does 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds which is the slowest time among all. The Audi TT is two-tenths of a second slower than the Supra in the 0-60 mph run.

2021 Toyota GR Supra Ride and Handling:

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra is underpinned by a superb chassis which is accentuated by a forgiving suspension setup and laser-sharp steering response. All these work in conjunction to deliver a class-leading and engaging driving experience. Don’t get us wrong when we say that this is a very capable car and has all virtues to be a daily driver and on weekends a corner-craving fun-to-drive track car. 

2021 Toyota GR Supra Coupe ride and handling

Except for the base model, higher trims of Supra come with adaptive suspension and active rear differential; both these take the ride and handling of this car to its full potential. That said the base trim i.e. Supra 2.0 which doesn’t get these two features still handles well and will make for a very good car for someone who wishes to hone his/her driving skills. While the Supra 3.0 and higher are more suited for seasoned drivers.

2021 Toyota GR Supra Braking:

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra gets 13-inch rotors both at the front and rear for the 2.0-liter turbo-four powered model. While the 3.0-liter turbo-six models get a 13.7-inches rotor at the front and a 13.6-inches rotor at the rear. While 60-0 mph braking distance figures are still not available with us. We will update this as soon as we get these figures.

As for the rivals, the Audi TT gets the smallest set of rotors with 12.3-inches at the front and an 11.8-inches rotor at the rear. The Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe gets a 13.0-inches rotor at the front but a smaller 11.8-inches rotor at the rear. So the Supra even for the smaller engine gets the bigger rotors compared to the rivals.

2021 Toyota GR Supra Fuel Economy

8.0/10

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four returns an EPA estimated fuel economy of 21 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined. While the 3.0-liter inline-six powered Supra returns 22 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg combined. Regardless of the engine you chose, all the Supra come with a 13.7-gallon fuel tank.

As for the rivals, none are as fuel-efficient as the Toyota GR Supra. While the Mercedes-Benz C300 manages to beat the Toyota GR Supra with one mpg better gas mileage on the highway. Although it loses out to the Supra in the city and combined gas mileage by the same margin. The Audi TT with 23/31/26 mpg in city/highway/combined respectively returns the lowest figures among all.

2021 Toyota GR Supra Interior

7.0/10

Step inside the cabin of the 2021 Toyota GR Supra and immediately you will recognize that the vibes aren’t like the ones which you generally get from a Toyota vehicle. Look at anything be it the steering, gear shifter, or the overall dash layout you will find all of these heavily inspired from the cabin of BMW Z4. On a plus side, the cabin feels premium and the layout is focused on the driver. The little bulge on the roof ensures sufficient headroom but tall passengers would still be a tight fit here.

Overall the ergonomics are spot on and the seats, although only manually adjustable, save weight, offer good support and sufficient flexibility to ensure the occupants are at ease. While there was hardly anything that’s complaint worthy but we will nitpick on a few issues. We found the ingress and egress a bit of a hassle as you sit very low to the ground. That said, the rearward visibility is also not that great.

The Toyota GR Supra is the only car here that offers seating for two while the other two offer seating for four. But we suggest you take that with a pinch of salt. As the rear seats of Audi TT are not adult-friendly while the Mercedes-Benz C-Class can sit two adults at the back, the legroom isn’t sufficient to stretch yourself comfortably on a long drive. That said, the Audi TT offers 12 cubic feet of trunk space which is the best in this comparison while the Toyota GR Supra offers 10.2 cubic feet of trunk space which is the least in the segment. Highlights of the interior include:

  • Black Alcantara / leather-trimmed sports seats
  • Keyless entry and start
  • 8-way manually adjustable sports seat w/ 4-way lumbar and 2-way bolster adjustment
  • Heated front seats (available)
  • 14-way power-adjustable sports seats (available)
  • Carbon fiber interior trim (available)

2021 Toyota GR Supra Infotainment System:

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra gets an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that runs on the Supra Command system. The standard setup gets four speakers, AM/FM, SiriusXM, Bluetooth. The infotainment system is not the best in business and is more of a shoddy re-skinned iDrive infotainment system.

The system has not been calibrated or optimized well and makes it very frustrating to operate due to its laggy nature. But you don’t have much of a choice as this system is standard across the trim level. While optional upgrades are limited to a 12-speaker 500-watt JBL sound system, navigation system, wireless Apple CarPlay, and a few more. Highlights of infotainment system include:

  • 8.8-inch touchscreen
  • 4-speaker sound system
  • AM/FM
  • SiriusXM
  • 12-speaker JBL sound system (available)

2021 Toyota GR Supra Exterior

6.0/10

The exterior design of the 2021 Toyota GR Supra hasn’t changed much since it was re-done last year. The redesign last year was well executed and we don’t find any reason for Toyota to change the design for at least a year or two more. That said, the Supra gets an aggressive front look with large angular intakes and sharp LED headlights. The double-bubble roof at the beginning although looks odd but with time it grows on you. 

2021 Toyota GR Supra Coupe 

On the side, you get 18-inch alloy wheels in the base trim while the higher trims get 19-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels. Moving to the rear you get a ducktail spoiler and dual exhaust which gives the Supra a sick look from the back. New for this year is the A91 Edition trim that gets few differentiating exterior highlights like matte black finished alloy wheels, carbon-fiber side mirrors, black satin double hash special decal on the C-pillar.

Dimension wise the Mercedes-Benz C-Class remains the longest and the tallest vehicle among the three. While the Toyota GR Supra is the widest coupe among all. Owing to its length the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has the longest wheelbase of 111.8-inches and the Audi TT is the heaviest coupe weighing 3,197 pounds. That said, the Toyota GR Supra has the highest ground clearance of 4.7-inches. Highlights of the exterior include:

  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • 19-inch alloy wheels (available)
  • Dual exhaust
  • LED headlights
  • Integrated rear spoiler
  • Auto-folding, heated outside mirror w/ memory function

2021 Toyota GR Supra Safety

9.0/10

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra hasn’t been crash-tested by either of the two, NHTSA and IIHS. Regardless of that Toyota has given a bevy of safety features to make the 2021 Supra the safest coupe in its segment. Standard safety features across the range include eight airbags, a rearview camera with guidelines, traction control, tire pressure monitoring, stability control, etc. The optional driver-assist package for $1,195 adds features like dynamic radar cruise control, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors with emergency braking. Highlights of the safety feature include:

  • Lane departure warning w/ steering assist
  • Pre-collision system w/ pedestrian detection
  • Automatic high beams
  • Automatic emergency braking

2021 Toyota GR Supra Competition

8.0/10

2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0 Vs 2021 Audi TT

The 2021 Audi TT except for the extra two seats at the back has nothing in its kitty to score against the superior Toyota GR Supra. The Toyota GR Supra is not only cheaper than the Audi TT but also is much more powerful, faster in 0-60 mph and quarter-mile run, and returns a better fuel economy. If that isn’t enough to convince you on the Supra then what it is.

2021 Audi TT

2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0 Vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe

Just like the Audi TT the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has the extra two seats at the rear to ensure better practicality than the Toyota GR Supra. But it is nowhere close to what a Supra is under the skin. The mechanicals of the Supra are solid and you would enjoy driving it hard. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is more of a comfort-oriented coupe that will carry four occupants in style and luxury. So choose your poison based on your priorities.

2021 Toyota GR Supra Final Verdict

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra has everything you need under one roof. A fuel-efficient turbo-four or a powerful turbo-six to choose from. The starting price undercuts all the rivals and even then it offers better performance and rides and handling without a compromise on the fuel economy figures. Although the cabin space of the Supra is a bit tight we can let this one thing pass, as the pros outweigh the cons by a margin. That said, the Toyota GR Supra is a go-to vehicle for anyone who is looking to have a sporty coupe that can double up as a daily driver too.
