Toyota GR Supra review - MPG and running costs

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

Evo rating
Price
from £54,340
  • Strong performance, well-judged ride and handling
  • Not as engaging as we’d like, no manual gearbox option

Big performance no longer comes with the consumption penalties it used to, at least not on paper. With a WLTP combined figure of 34.4mpg the Supra promises decent cruising economy, though we’ve not yet driven a car over a long enough distance to know how realistic that might be in the real world.

Toyota offers two CO2 figures for the car, one correlated with the old NEDC testing (170g/km) and the other measured on WLTP (193g/km). For VED the latter applies, meaning a first-year tax figure of £1280, dropping to £145 a year thereafter. Insurance-wise Toyota quotes group 37E-38E, and in the UK it gets a healthy five-year, 100,000-mile warranty.

Tyre-wise, a pair of front Michelin Pilot Super Sports in 255/35 ZR19 is just over £320, fully fitted and delivered from Blackcircles. A pair of 275/35 ZR19 rears tips over the £400 mark, though if you wanted something less extreme – Pilot Sport 4 Ss, for instance – both fronts and rears are a little less than Super Sports, and while outright grip is lower, should be useable in a wider range of weathers and temperatures.
