The 2021 Toyota Supra Is More Than the Sum of Its Parts

Sometimes words just can’t express just how nice a vehicle is. That’s certainly the case with the 2021 Toyota Supra. On paper, the Supra just doesn’t seem all that impressive, yet everyone that gets behind the wheel can’t stop talking about how it is so much more than the sum of its parts. With this powerful sporty car, it’s in your best interest to simply sit back and enjoy the drive.

Consumer Reports and the 2021 Toyota Supra

It’s been 20 years since drivers have had an opportunity to slide behind the wheel of a brand-new Toyota Supra. The car made its comeback in 2020 and those who invested in the sporty little vehicle are quite happy with it.

The 2021 Supra represents the fifth generation of this particular car. Consumer Reports has ranked it the third-best vehicle in the Sports/Sporty Cars Over $40,000 category.

They’ve given it an overall score of 83 out of a possible 100. The Supra scored an impressive 91 out of 100 on the Consumer Reports road test. It was awarded a three out of five for predicted reliability and a four out of five for customer satisfaction.

At a glance, the scores the 2021 Supra scored from Consumer’s Reports don’t seem impressive, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The first thing to consider is that this early in the year, the only thing anyone can do is guess as to how reliable the 2021 Supra will be. It simply hasn’t been on the market long enough to know how it will hold up to intense use.

The second thing to consider when you’re looking at Consumer Reports predicted reliability is that the organization arrives at that number by looking at the overall history of the vehicle they’re grading. The Supra was reintroduced to the market in 2020.

All the data Consumers Reports is working with is based on 2020. It’s likely that as time passes and Supra starts to build a history and reputation for itself, the predicted reliability will improve.

Even though both the 2020 and the 2021 Toyota Supras are in the same generation, some things set them apart. According to Car Buzz, Toyota made several changes to the 2021 Toyota Supra.

The biggest changes are that Toyota added a 255-horsepower four-cylinder engine to the line up for drivers who were worried about fuel consumption. If you desire more power from your sports car, another trim option includes a six-cylinder engine.

The infotainment center is more than two inches bigger. Toyota also decided to create a 2021 special edition vehicle which is called the A91 Edition. Only 1,000 A91 Edition Supras will be made.

The vehicle’s interior can trigger mixed reviews. Some people love the low-slung cockpit and feel that the cozy design enhances the Supra’s sporty vibe.
