The 2020 Toyota Supra Isn't As Fun As The Toyota 86

- 2020 Toyota Supra vs Toyota 86 TRD - Which Is More Fun To Drive?
After driving the new Supra back to back with the 86 TRD, I found myself smiling more while driving the wonderfully handling 86.
The 2020 Toyota Supra and 2019 Toyota 86 offer new car buyers an interesting choice: excellent torque and road presence, or lightweight and nimble. Dimensionally, they're both quite similar, though the Supra weighs about 600 lbs more. Surprisingly, the Supra actually has a lower center of gravity than the 86, even though the 86 has a boxer engine rather than a tall inline six-cylinder like the Supra. Part of this is thanks to the Supra's lower ground clearance, at 4.5 inches rather than 4.9.
Driving the two vehicles back to back at Summit Point Motorsports Park, I found myself enjoying the 86 more than the Supra, much to my own surprise. After breaking down each of the cars mechanically, I think there are very clear reasons as to why I had such a great time in the 86. The video will discuss four reason I think the Toyota 86 is more fun than the Supra.
Toyota TRD 86 (Manual) - 2837 lbs [1287 kg]
2020 Toyota Supra (3.0) - 3397 lbs [1541 kg] (+560 lbs)
Toyota 86 (Base, Manual) - 2776 lbs [1259 kg] (-621 lbs)
