Powertrain are speculated to consist of three options, kicking off with a 188kW 2.0-litre turbocharged in-line four and a 250kW 3.0-litre turbocharged V6. A 2.5-litre hybrid will also join the range further down the track.

Besides the new Supra, Toyota is also set to unveil a sporty GTI-branded variant of the Corolla hatch which is expected to get a 184kW 2.0-litre turbo four.
