Toyota GR Supra - MPG and running costs

Decent on-paper economy for its performance. Good warranty too

Evo rating
  • Agile chassis and polished powertrains
  • Lacks feel, feedback and bite; best class rivals are more capable

Big performance no longer comes with the consumption penalties it used to, at least not on paper. With a WLTP combined figure of 34.8mpg the Supra promises decent cruising economy, and it largely reaches those targets in day-to-day driving.

Toyota offers a CO2 figure measured on the WLTP cycle at 183g/km. For VED the latter applies, meaning a first-year tax figure of £585 for the 2.0 and £945 for the 3.0. Tax then drops to £685 for both for the first five years taking into account the £40,000 valuation surcharge, before dropping to £165 per year thereafter. Insurance-wise Toyota quotes group 37E-38E, and in the UK it gets a healthy five-year, 100,000-mile warranty.

Replacement tyres aren't exactly cheap; a front pair of 255-section Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S's will come in at just over £430, fully fitted and delivered from Blackcircles. A pair of wider 275 rears tips over the £600 mark.
