The 2022 Toyota Supra is powerful and agile with either of its turbocharged engines

What kind of car is the 2022 Toyota Supra? What does it compare to?

The 2022 Toyota Supra is a two-seat sports coupe. It’s the more powerful of Toyota’s two sports cars. Rivals include the related BMW Z4, Porsche 718, Jaguar F-Type, Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ duo, and even the Chevrolet Corvette.

Is the 2022 Toyota Supra a good car?

The Supra delivers the sports car goods, with agile moves and plenty of power from either engine. It lacks space and rides firmly, but it’s always fun to drive. It earns a TCC Rating of 6.2 out of 10.

What's new for the 2022 Toyota Supra?

Now in its third model year, the 2022 Toyota Supra adds an A91-CF (carbon fiber) Edition with a limited run of 600 units. It also features some minor equipment shuffling, and Apple CarPlay now covers the whole screen instead of part of it on models with the premium audio system.

The Supra’s design crams a lot of scoops, curves, and lines into a short hatchback coupe shape. It’s bold and it draws attention, but we wouldn’t call it elegant. The interior is simple, though, to help the driver concentrate on the road.

The Supra uses BMW powertrains and a BMW structure. The 2.0 model is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-4 that makes 255 hp and provides lively acceleration. Other models feature a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 that ramps up the output to 382 hp, delivers a 0-60 mph time under 4.0 seconds, and adds some emotion to the soundtrack. Neither engine drinks too much fuel, and the 2.0 gets 28 mpg combined.

About 200 pounds less than 3.0 models, the Supra 2.0 feels light and nimble. It has quick steering, and its 18-wheels and tires provide a decent ride.

The 3.0 models get more advanced components. They have 19-inch wheels and adaptive dampers that also do a decent job of ironing out road imperfections. They also have an electronic limited-slip differential to help put the power down when exiting turns, but it can also make the car feel unsteady in high-speed corners. No matter the model, the Supra is wide and short, with wide tires and tenacious grip. The combination gives the Supra slot-car moves, especially in tight turns.

As a two-seater, the Supra has little space. Taller drivers will want more leg room, and everyone will want more cargo room, with just 10.2 cubic feet in its hatchback hold. The cabin is built to a fine standard, but its BMW-derived infotainment system is behind the times.

How much does the 2022 Toyota Supra cost?

The 2022 Supra 2.0 starts at $44,185, and the A91-CF Edition runs up to $64,275. The 2.0’s standard equipment includes leather and Alcantara seats, keyless start, an 8.8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Standard safety features consist of automatic emergency braking and active lane control, and buyers can also get blind-spot monitors, parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control.

Where is the Toyota Supra made?

Is the Toyota Supra a good-looking car?

The Supra is a striking sports car. It’s attractive, but not as elegant as the larger Toyota FT-1 concept its design is based on. Festooned with surface undulations and scoops, it announces its presence with authority. We rate it a 7 for style based on its bold exterior and tidy interior.

With prominent rear haunches, the Supra appears coiled like a predator ready to pounce. It has classic sports car proportions with a long hood and short deck, but its size packs a lot of design into a small space. It has numerous character lines, curves, and ducts that don’t always play well with each other, but it’s still a bold, handsome design.

The cabin is much more simple. It comes only in black, though the upholstery can be red. The dash has a horizontal theme, and the standard 8.8-inch touchscreen rises from the top like a tablet. The wide center console has a buttress to help isolate the driver. It’s a BMW vibe that can be stark in all black, though that is broken up by metallic trim and digital displays.

How fast is the Toyota Supra?

The Supra is the more powerful of Toyota’s two sports cars. It’s shorter and faster than the 86 and has more grip. It’s agile on an autocross and a thrill on a racetrack. We rate it a 9 for performance for its incredible dexterity and ready power from either engine.

The base engine is a 2.0-liter turbo-4 that spins up 255 hp and a hefty 295 lb-ft of torque. It launches the car from 0-60 mph in a sprightly 5.0 seconds, and makes the power readily available through its quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. The turbo-4’s sound is just a notch up from the average family sedan.

Turbo-4 Supras are quick, but 6-cylinder models deliver a wave of sudden power. The 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 produces 382 hp and 386 lb-ft of torque, which vaults the car from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. Peak torque arrives quickly at 1,600 rpm, making it easy for the same 8-speed automatic to provide power on demand. The turbo-6 also sounds a sonorous thrum during acceleration, with braps and pops between gears.

A stiff, short structure, a double-jointed front strut suspension, a five-link rear suspension, and wide tires give the Supra tenacious grip and sharp moves. The power, especially from the turbo-6, can overwhelm the rear tires and drift the car through corners, and the short wheelbase can send the rear end skittering in fast, sharp turns, so a steady hand at the wheel is best.

The Supra’s agility makes it best on an autocross, but it also has track capability, though with a caveat. We experienced power shifting across the rear axle in our track sessions, and it created an unsettling rear-end wiggle that made us slow down through corners. Toyota says it has refined the car’s programming and reinforced the front end since then, but we haven’t tested it on a track since, so we can’t say if the problem persists. The good news is the issue only happens during extreme driving that no driver should experience on the street.

Ride quality is stiff and busy, but not too harsh. Turbo-4 models have smaller 18-inch wheels and tires that help soak up bumps better, though they don’t offer the adaptive dampers. They also lack the electronic rear differential.
