- The 2021 Toyota Supra is good for EPA fuel economy of 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined.
- It’s powered by an updated, more powerful version of the BMW turbocharged inline-six that makes 382 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque.
- The new, more powerful model suffers a loss of 2 mpg in the city and 1 mpg on the highway compared to the 2020 model.
In its second year of production, the Toyota Supra has gained an updated, more powerful version of the turbocharged inline-six along with a completely new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2021 Supra’s more powerful engine comes at a price, though, as the 382-hp six is EPA rated at 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
The 2020 Supra, with its 335-hp inline-six, was EPA rated at 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The new, more powerful model therefore loses 2 mpg in the city and 1 mpg on the highway. Keep in mind, though, the Supra is still more efficient than the Chevy Corvette, the Porsche Cayman GTS, and the BMW M2.
The 2021 Supra’s new engine is the more powerful 382-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that’s found in the Z4 M40i. Along with the upgraded the engine, Toyota also revised the chassis on the 2021 models by adding things like lightweight aluminum braces that tie the strut towers to the radiator support, revised damper tuning, adaptive dampers, differential, and stability control.
We already named the Supra a 10Best Cars winner after a 21-year hiatus. During our testing, we sent a 2020 Supra to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, however, with the more powerful engine, Toyota is claiming a 3.9-second zero-to-60-mph time. We expect to beat that.
