2020 Toyota Supra on-sale in September from $84,900+ORCs

The 2020 Toyota Supra will go on-sale in Australia in September with two variants offered and prices starting at $84,900+ORCs.

Customers will be able to order a 2020 Toyota Supra online from 20 June, Toyota announced yesterday with Australia scheduled to receive 300 vehicles. There will be two variants offered in Australia, the GT and GTS with prices starting at $84,900+ORCs and topping out at $94,900+ORCs. Vehicles will arrive in the country from early September.

Toyota Vice President Sales and Marketing, Sean Hanley said “The GR Supra should be compared with vehicles in a much higher price bracket including top-end European sports coupes – it really is that good,” Mr Hanley said.  

“I am certain anyone who experiences it will appreciate the engineering, passion and precision that has gone into building what we believe is one of the best value, most engaging drivers’ cars on sale in the world today.

“With such sharp pricing and only approximately 300 cars available in the first 12 months, we have also developed a new online sales process to ensure a fair allocation of vehicles and provide customers with an exclusive experience.

“The Supra is one of the most exciting cars we’ve had in our lineup for more than 20 years, and the anticipation and excitement from fans has been unprecedented with thousands of registrations of interest.

“The new centralised online sales process handled by a dedicated Supra concierge will ensure we keep customers updated at every step of the way and provide a bespoke and very personal experience, which is fitting for a vehicle of the Supra’s calibre,” he said.

Because of the limited number of vehicles available to Australian buyers and the interest in the new vehicle, Toyota’s new online ordering system will use a randomised balloting process.

Customers will be able to log on to a dedicated website on 19 June at 12:00 noon AEST, to participate in the first round of vehicle reservations. This window will remain open until approximately 100 reservations are confirmed, Toyota said.

The online reservation website will use a randomised balloting process to allocate the first 100 reservations and should they choose to go through with their purchase will then be able to complete the full registration process.

“Successful customers can expect to receive confirmation of their reservation within 24 hours before receiving a phone call from Toyota’s dedicated Supra concierge. They will then be guided by the concierge throughout the purchase process, Toyota said.

“Those who miss out in the first round, will receive information about timing for future reservation windows when they are determined. Multiple rounds are planned within the first year, timed to align with further availability of cars.”

Both GT and GTS models are powered by a 3.0-litre, twin-scroll turbocharged, straight six-cylinder petrol engine borrowed from BMW (remember that Supra and Z4 are virtual twins under the skin) that generates 250kW and 500Nm of torque. Drive to the rear wheels is via an eight-speed automatic transmission with a launch control function that sees the Supra hit 100km/h in 4.4 seconds.

The GR Supra is fitted standard with an active limited slip differential and adaptive suspension. And it gets a full suite of Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance features includes active cruise control (ACC), pre-collision safety system with pedestrian and cyclist detection (PCS), lane departure alert, auto high beam and traffic sign recognition. Additional safety features include seven airbags, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, rear view camera, front clearance and rear parking sensors and tyre pressure monitor.

On the inside, the Supra gets dual-zone climate control; keyless smart entry and start; heated, eight-way electrically adjustable leather-accented sports seats with power lumbar support; electrochromatic rear view mirror; and a wireless phone charger. The GTS adds high performance Brembo sports brakes, head-up display, premium JBL audio system with 12 speakers and larger 19-inch alloy wheels. This variant is also available with two exclusive options – Alcantara interior trim and upholstery and a matte grey paint – each priced at $2500.
