Toyota Supra GTS 2022 Review

We drive the Supra GTS on a road test review

Supra GTS – Sometimes I get to drive a car that is designed purely for fun and the Toyota Supra GTS is just such a car.

The Supra shares many details with the BMW Z4 and the inline six cylinder engine is a gem. It brings some 285kW and 500Nm from a low 1800rpm and drives the rear wheels through an 8 speed sports automatic transmission.

It will run from 0-100kmh in 4.1 seconds and top out at 250kmh.

However it will also potter around without fuss, ready for whatever you ask of it.

Toyota Supra GTS GR front interior

Supra has two comfortable seats, well laid out driver instruments and a singular focus on performance. If you are taller or of a bigger build then forget it.

Boot space is tight and soft bags are the go so they can be squeezed in.

Supra is not for everyday driving, it’s too tight inside and harsh in the suspension, yet head for the tight twisty road and delight in its exhaust note as you experience the pure joy of a true sports coupe.

Priced from a bit over $97,000 plus the usual costs its actually a stunning bargain

Some more Supra GTS thoughts

  • Thoughts from my partner who also drove the Supra
  • The supra is a lot of fun
  • It has all the handling and performance and feel of the classic Supras of the past with modern features of car that we have come to expect in 2022
  • The Supra is fast off the mark with superior handling and is on the overall an exceptionally balance drive
  • What I love though is that whilst you don’t buy it for modern features it still has an easy to use infotainment system with wireless Apple car play, electric seats and a high quality reverse camera.
  • I personally love the aesthetics both exterior and interior, however some of the traditionalist may find it too different from the original.
  • For a small two door car the boot space is decent.
  • You could easily fit a load of groceries or regular size suitcase in the back which differs from other cars of it style such as the 370 Z.
  • Whilst it was fairly comfortable to drive as a 6ft 3 man I feel like over time I would get over having to get into the low and small space of the car and isn’t as comfortable over long drives compared with many other cars on the market.
  • However that’s not what you would buy this car for.
  • I feel like it’s very comfortable for the car of the style however that style is just never as comfortable as a SUV.
  • The engine sounds epic.
