4.0 out of 5

​The collaboration between Toyota and BMW has resulted in a quirky interior for the Supra, with quite a different feel to other models in the range. It manages to feel like a car costing twice as much as a GT 86, though, competing well against rivals like the Alpine A110, while arguably feeling nicer inside than a Porsche 718 Cayman.

It's also a car that will cosset you on a long journey, rather than beating you up. By making its bodyshell incredibly stiff (around 2.3 times more rigid than the GT 86), Toyota has been able to fit softer suspension to soak up bumpy roads, that can also be firmed up at the press of a button when you head on track. It's better able to soak up bumps than the Audi TTS or Porsche 718 Cayman S.

While the Mk4 Supra is now a legend among enthusiasts, its interior is very of its time. Everything was finished in hard black plastic – typical of Japanese cars from the 90s – so the latest Supra’s finish is miles ahead of the old model in terms of upmarket appeal, though eagle-eyed buyers will note many similarities to the BMW Z4 with which it shares much of its switchgear.

That’s probably no bad thing, however, as we much prefer BMW’s infotainment system to the one used in recent Toyota models, so the choice to stick with that system – albeit with Toyota logos swapped into the software – is no bad thing. It works well, and brings the option of Apple CarPlay, which was lacking from most of Toyota's range when the Supra first arrived, but sadly Android Auto is still missing. We also enjoyed the heated and ventilated bucket seats, which hug you firmly in corners and offer a good position for the driver.

Equipment

The 3.0-litre Supra comes with lots of standard features such as climate control, a rear-view camera, Bluetooth, sat nav and adaptive LED headlights. Formerly an upgrade, the Pro pack is now standard, adding leather upholstery, a 12-speaker JBL stereo system, head-up display, wireless smartphone charging and packs for extra lighting and storage.

Costing around £8,000 less, the 2.0-litre Supra also comes with slightly less kit as standard. There are smaller 18-inch alloy wheels and there's also no carbon-fibre trim inside. The head-up display, premium stereo, leather seats and wireless phone charging also aren’t standard. For a limited time, buyers could also opt for the 2.0-litre Fuji Speedway Edition, which has a unique look thanks to white paintwork, red door mirrors and brake calipers, and matte black 19-inch alloy wheels.

Options

Unlike its rivals, it appears there are very few options for the GR Supra, with just paint choices listed along with a boot liner and European safety kit (£150). It’s a little disappointing that you can’t add some of the extra kit of the 3.0-litre car onto the 2.0-litre version. A huge aftermarket for Supra upgrades and accessories is also springing up very quickly. That contrasts with the Jaguar F-Type and Porsche 718 Cayman, which can be made much more expensive if you tick too many extra boxes.
