A four-cylinder Toyota Supra will be coming to Canada and the U.S. after all, with formidable power and less weight than its 3.0-litre sibling.

Toyota hadn’t originally planned to sell its four-cylinder Supra in North America, apparently because the numbers came a little too close to those of the 86 across the showroom.

But apparently, plans have changed. This new entry-level Supra 2.0 is expected to be more affordable, but still has plenty going for it.

The 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder sitting in the front of the Supra 2.0 produces 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) happens in just 5.0 seconds, before the car presses on to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.

The 2.0 will stay paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission for now, and Toyota has no plans to pair a manual transmission with the Supra at this time. However, we know that BMW puts a six-speed manual transmission behind its four-cylinder Z4 in Europe – built on the same platform as Supra – so we know it fits.

The Supra 2.0 has also undergone a weight loss program, dropping 200 pounds for a new total weight of 3,181 pounds. To do this, the company replaced four-piston brake calipers with single-piston ones; tossed the active differential and active suspension for fixed ones; and fitted manually adjustable seats instead of the 14-way electric ones.

All safety features are still available, but at an extra cost. The six-cylinder GR Supra 3.0 is seeing its prices go up for 2021, along with its power output – it now pumps out 382 horsepower instead of 335 hp – but there is still no word on pricing for the 2.0.
