PLANO, Texas (May 19, 2021) – Toyota’s dynamic 2021 Supra 3.0 Premium was honored with two awards at the Texas Auto Writers Association’s (TAWA) 2021 Auto Roundup. Impressing with its 384 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, the 2021 Supra won the highest mark in the performance coupe category and was named the Performance Vehicle of Texas at the signature spring driving event.
Among a collection of vehicles from the world’s top manufacturers, the Supra received praise for its powerful 3.0-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine and comprehensive safety features. The 2021 Toyota Supra 3.0 Premium features an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a revised engine to take it from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. Boasting an array of features, the Supra wows with a power boost and returned chassis continuing a tradition of an impressive ride/handling balance.
Accenting the Supra’s concept car-inspired body are 19-inch forged aluminum 10-spoke wheels with Michelin Pilot super sport tires, and inside it features 14-way heated power-adjustable black leather-trimmed sport seats. At Auto Roundup, attendees experienced the vehicle’s new safety and technology package with an enhanced touchpad control, a 12 speaker JBL audio system, and the Driver’s Assist Safety Package featuring dynamic radar cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and more.
This year’s Texas Auto Roundup brought together 40 journalists to evaluate 35 vehicles at the Texas Motor Speedway. Vehicles from the world’s top manufacturers were put to the test on this professional track and evaluated on interior, exterior, value, performance and personal appeal. Attendees that test drove the Supra took note of its speed, agility and performance combined with its electric power steering and vehicle stability control which makes it ideal for quick transitions and tight turns.
