2020 Toyota Supra Fuel Economy Announced


X Scalper

Information on the 2020 Toyota Supra is trickling in ever so slowly. After learning the sports car will start at $50,920, we now know official fuel economy numbers.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the Supra achieves a rating of 24/31/26 mpg city/highway/combined. As you would expect, these numbers outperform the previous Supra, which topped out at 17/22/19 mpg. The Supra left the U.S. market in 1998.

The new Supra utilizes a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six good for 335 hp. This engine comes paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Toyota estimates that hitting 60 mph will take 4.1 seconds, although we’ll have to test out this claim for ourselves.

The 2020 Toyota Supra performs favorably compared to the 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman with the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 300 hp. The EPA rated the Cayman at 22/29/25 mpg. Meanwhile, the 2020 Jaguar F-Type nets 23/30/26 mpg with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, but only 20/28/23 mpg with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder. The EPA hasn’t listed full fuel economy information for the Supra’s mechanical twin, the six-cylinder BMW Z4. But we do know the four-cylinder Z4 sDrive30i is rated at 25/32/28 mpg.

Although fuel economy information has been released, consumers will have to wait a little while longer to get their hands on the Supra. The model goes on sale this summer.
