A legendary sports car Toyota MR2 was produced from 1984 until 2007. After the three generations, the 2020 Toyota MR2 is making a comeback and the fourth-generation is ready to start. A real sports car will deliver astonishing driving manners and responsive handling. The dimensions are small and the price is affordable.
The name MR2 is a reference to the car specs where “M” stands for mid-engine and “R” stands for rear-wheel drive. The “2” represent the number of seats. This car will arrive in a coupe form, and we will try to provide you with the latest information about the 2020 MR2 model.
2020 Toyota MR2 exterior styling is sporty
Each and every generation of the Toyota MR2 came with a very unique styling and features. The upcoming 2020 Toyota MR2 model will be no different with its wide and low stance. Moreover, short overhangs and aggressive lines and creases are exactly what is expected from such an iconic car. The dimensions are small as before which is surprising.
The front end adds triangular headlights, cleaner corner lights and three large air intakes. To the sides, the standard wheels are 18-inch long while the 19-inch wheels are on the optional list. Rear end holds an integrated spoiler and louvered vents. Taillights are looking sharp and flat and are equipped with the latest LED technology.
2020 Toyota MR2 interior looks classy
The interior will look very similar to the GT86 model. The cabin is driver-oriented with a perfect layout of the controls and buttons. Seats are looking sporty and are highly comfortable. The seats are wrapped in black upholstery with red contrast stitching. The center console and air vents are not getting a chrome trim but instead a polished metal trim.
Analog gauges are looking large with the tachometer and speedometer. Metal pedals with rubber inserts are standard, just like the leather shift knob and leather steering wheel. Speaking of that, the steering wheel is a three-spoke and will not feature multifunction buttons. The 2020 Toyota MR2 will use the same infotainment system as the GT86 model. A 7.0-inch touchscreen is new and other premium features such as Navigation, audio system, and Bluetooth are all included.
2020 Toyota MR2 engine rumors
One of the first things you need to know about the forthcoming 2020 Toyota MR2 is that this coupe is not about the power. It is about its low stance, handling, and fun. There is no news about the possible drivetrain option, but with that in mind, we can assume what sort of engine will take a place under the hood.
The most probable outcome is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit with 16 valves and variable valve timing. The engine generates 235 HP and 180 lb-ft of torque. The MR2 will reach from 0 to 60 mph in less than six seconds and we expect a top speed at 150 mph. A 6-speed manual transmission is the only choice that can make a production.
2020 Toyota MR2 price and release date
The only thing we know about the pricing is that the 2020 Toyota MR2 will slot below the GT86 model that costs $60,000. The only reasonable thing from Toyota is to price its MR2 car at around $45,000. Expect this coupe to hit the car markets in the first half of 2020.
