Since it made its official debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, it has become official that the next-generation Supra has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 Toyota Supra Manual model. The return of this popular sports car made all the BMW and Toyota fans satisfied, since these two successful companies are going to work together on this model.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Supra, it has been obvious that the FT1 concept, which was revealed at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, served as an inspiration for its overall design. Of course, some differences and adjustments can be noticed, but the new Supra will clearly show that race-inspired and sports coupe styling. As we have previously mentioned, the overall bodywork of the new Supra will be a result of the collaboration between the Japanese carmaker and BMW since this sports car will ride on a brand-new platform shared with the BMW Z4 roadster. This rear-wheel drive platform will help the Supra improve its handling and stability as well as acceleration and overall performance. The profile of this coupe will show a long and aerodynamic nose and a shorter rear end. In the front fascia, you can expect a full LED lighting and edgier appearance. In the back part of this vehicle, you will notice a bit sportier look due to its small spoiler and slim LED taillights.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Supra will reveal a perfect combination of sporty and luxurious features. Although its cabin has been quite a mystery at the moment, it has been said that it will be largely inspired by some other Toyota’s models. The carmaker should improve the materials used on the seats and other parts of the cabin, but also receive some significant updates in terms of technology and safety. The center console should get a touch-screen display with the latest infotainment and entertainment system that will provide some of the popular next-generation features and connectivity options.
Besides the rear-wheel drive platform, the 2019 Toyota Supra should also share its engine options with BMW. One of the options, found in 3Series and 4Series comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that hits 181 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. That same engine delivers the output of 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque in higher trim levels. Finally, the top and high-performance trims are most likely to use a 3.0-liter turbo inline-six that has been expected to provide 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque.
