The Year’s Best Sports-Performance Car in Canada: The Toyota GR Supra

Automobile Journalists Association of Canada honours Toyota’s reborn legend with category win: GR Supra now in race for Canadian Car of the Year

TORONTO, ON – JANUARY 23, 2020 – The return of the Toyota Supra last year was one of the worst-kept secrets in the auto industry – but it proved to be worth the wait. And the members of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada agreed. Last week at the Montréal International Auto Show, AJAC named the 2020 Toyota GR Supra as the association’s Best Sports-Performance Car in Canada for 2020. The category win puts the GR Supra in the running for AJAC’s 2020 Canadian Car Of The Year trophy, to be awarded at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto next month.

“The 2020 Toyota GR Supra is the sports car that enthusiasts were waiting for – with an exhilarating combination of power, precision and agility wrapped in aggressive coupe styling and enhanced with an impressive list of premium comfort and convenience features and technologies,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “We’d like to thank the members of AJAC for recognizing the Supra’s rebirth with this important honour.”

The Toyota Supra returned to Canadian showrooms in 2019 for the first time in more than 20 years, as a fully-loaded model prepared to turn heads and shred records on Track Days. Equally at home on the circuit as it is on the open road or the city street, the GR Supra is aggressively styled to convey its authentic performance credentials and loaded with features and amenities that will remind every Supra owner just how much fun driving can be.

The 2020 Toyota GR Supra is an iconic marque from Toyota’s history, brought forward into the future. This two-seater sports coupe is the first Toyota to earn the “GR” suffix – signifying that it has been track tested and fine-tuned by GAZOO Racing, Toyota’s in-house motorsports team, which counts Toyota’s global president, Akio Toyoda, amongst its drivers.
