Low figures relate to the least economical version; high to the most economical. Based on WLTP combined fuel economy for versions of this car made since September 2017 only, and typical current fuel or electricity costs.

Fuel economy

Petrol engines 34.4 - 38.7 mpg
  • Expect around 24mpg when daily driving the 3.0-litre
  • Should have decent resale values due to rarity
  • Emissions aren't bad for a six-cylinder

Given its large, high-performance engine you could excuse the Toyota Supra for drinking petrol like it's going out of fashion but, in reality, the Japanese manufacturer says you can get up to 34.4mpg on the larger 3.0-litre engine based on the latest WLTP figure. With CO2 output of 188g/km, that's not a bad effort, all things considered.

Opt for the 2.0-litre for even lower running costs. Fuel economy is a claimed 37.7mpg and CO2 emissions are rated at 167g/km.

Residual values are yet to be announced or determined, but thanks to the Supra's small production numbers and high desirability (the first 900 were sold out almost instantly), you can anticipate low depreciation. It will be interesting to see how it compares with the BMW Z4 (and its other rivals) going forward – but we suspect it'll be on a par with the Alpine A110 and fall slightly behind the Porsche 718 Cayman. 

Toyota GR Supra reliability

  • Combine BMW with Toyota and it should be good
  • Excellent dealers and warranty support
  • Interior quality good, but not as good as we'd hoped

Given the large number of parts shared with the BMW Z4 and other vehicles from the German manufacturer, we reckon you should be fine. Especially when combined with the undoubtedly excellent Toyota dealer network. That's in combination with Toyota's own fine record for making strong cars that last - the Supra should give you no trouble.

Some of the interior fixtures and fittings are trimmed in sub-par materials, but there's no doubting the overall quality that underpins them – so we're looking at German, rather than Japanese, levels of solidity.

No doubt, we'll be getting a clearer picture as time passes.
