Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the Supra gets better fuel mileage than the M2 Competition Auto (24 city/31 hwy vs. 17 city/23 hwy).

Transmission

The Toyota Supra comes standard with an automatic transmission, for driver comfort, especially in the city. Automatic costs extra on the M2 Competition.

An eight-speed automatic is standard on the Toyota Supra, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the M2 Competition.

Car and Driver

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Supra has larger tires than the M2 Competition (F:255/35R19 & R:275/35R19 vs. F:245/35R19 & R:265/35R19).

Suspension and Handling

The Supra has a standard driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads. The M2 Competition’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

The Supra’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the M2 Competition’s (48.1% to 51.9%). This gives the Supra more stable handling and braking.

The Supra 3.0 Premium handles at 1.07 G’s, while the M2 Competition Coupe pulls only .99 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the Supra’s turning circle is 2.3 feet tighter than the M2 Competition’s (36.1 feet vs. 38.4 feet).

Chassis

The Toyota Supra may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 200 to 250 pounds less than the BMW M2 Competition.

The Supra is 3.7 inches shorter than the M2 Competition, making the Supra easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Ergonomics

The Supra offers a remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The M2 Competition doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Supra 3.0 Premium/Launch Edition has a standard heads-up display that projects speed readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The M2 Competition doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Supra’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The M2 Competition has a lever-type parking brake that has to be strenuously raised to engage properly. It has to be lifted up more and a button depressed to release it.

To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the Supra offers an optional Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention. This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The M2 Competition doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.
