The 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0 is swift and stylish. The car has an exotic look and sharp steering. It's also fuel-efficient and accelerates fast. However, something is lacking with the 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0. The car lacks the Supra sports-car feel. The new GR Supra features Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. These provide unlimited grip on the stylish 18-inch wheels. The Toyota GR Supra 2.0 scores highly on steering. It responds immediately and accurately. The same applies to its braking which is progressive and potent. But if you ask a Supra enthusiast they'll tell you it's missing something.

The Toyota GR Supra 2.0 comes with a 2.0-liter engine. The four-cylinder turbocharged engine produces 255 horsepower and 295 pounds of torque. The result is smooth and impressive. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5 seconds. The power delivery is linear and refined. Its eight-speed automatic transmission provides a great experience. However, you cannot substitute it for a manual. The automatic transmission reduces fuel consumption. The car delivers 28 miles per gallon. It has a city score of 25 mpg. Its highway rating is 32 mpg.
