The interior layout, fit and finish
Inside the Supra, you’ll find plenty of BMW switches, knobs, stalks and displays. While some may bleat that it shouldn’t be that way, all those controls work with precision and the displays are sharp.
Electric seat adjustment – with memory – is standard on all models and includes adjustable lumbar support and side bolsters, so you can get almost everything just so. We say almost because some may wish the driver’s seat went a little lower. Likewise, you get reach and rake adjustment for the steering wheel with enough movement to suit both the vertically challenged and gifted.
Unsurprisingly, the iDrive-derived infotainment system is a doddle to use, with a high-mounted display that’s right in your line of sight. The graphics are sharp, menus intuitive and the rotary dial controller between the seats is easy to use on the move. The screen is 8.8in in size with a DAB radio, sat nav and Apple CarPlay, although we do wish it also came with Android Auto.
In front of you are digital dials that may not have Audi-levels of configurability, but the graphics look swish and all the information the keen driver might need is displayed clearly in front of you.
Complaints? Well, although most of the plastics look and feel great, there are a couple of questionable finishes on the glovebox lid and lower doors, while some of the stitching on the dash is a little wobbly.
