No, The 2020 Toyota Supra Doesn’t Work As A Crossover

Whether you like it or not, we are all living in an automotive age becoming increasingly dominated by crossovers and SUVs.

As the number of these high-riding vehicles hitting streets around the world has increased quite progressively over recent years, you might find it difficult to notice the difference in vehicles driving around you compared to just a few short years ago.

However, next time you are driving, we recommend taking note of just how many crossovers you see and how few sedans or coupes are now being used. You may be shocked by what you observe.

Companies like Mitsubishi and Ford are succumbing to demand from consumers and building virtually nothing other than crossovers and SUVs but one of the major car manufacturers which has remained steadfast in also building traditional cars is Toyota. Among Toyota’s non-crossover global models include the Aygo, Yaris, Corolla, Camry, 86, Prius, Hilux, and most recently, the new Toyota Supra and each show that there’s still some life left in vehicles of these types.

This is something you will never be able to unsee

Despite this, an artist from Russian publication Auto Review thought it would be an interesting idea to render a crossover inspired by the Supra. The finished product won’t have us mailing our local Toyota rep anytime soon.

In creating the vehicle you see before you, the artist largely retained the front and rear fascias of the Supra but stretched them vertically to better suit a crossover with the sides of a BMW X4. Two extra doors were then added to the sides of the imaginary Toyota, resulting in a vehicle which will probably haunt us for years to come.

Unlike Ford which is designing a crossover inspired by the iconic two-door Mustang, Toyota has made no indication that it intends on doing the same with the Supra. If it did, we might be forced to migrate to Mars to escape the crossover invasion.

    Nice looking and aggressive unlike the rest of the soft girly CUVs on the market!

      You know what I’ve noticed. GIRLS are driving jeep wranglers and 4runners and letting their husbands drive the damn crossover.

      • Dark Rebel

        Well girls are largely raised to be men so that doesn’t surprise me. Also I guarantee you that many of those men don’t have a backbone to get what they want. She can have a Jeep but I’ll still have my two door coupe for the weekend.

    Someone has WAY too much free time on their hands and needs to get a real life.

  • botornot387

    Lol, if the supra was aspiring to be a Urus.

  • LJ

    I’m gonna be honest, I think this looks better than the actual Supra.

    • enthusia

      i was about to say the same.

      • khc

        I was going to say it doesn’t look any worse.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Why not? A budget X4? It will sell VERY well.

    • sidewaysspin

      Why budget, the Supra is as expensive as an X4 so an SUV version of it wouldn’t be different.

  • Knarck

    This is the world we live in! It will so work lol

  • Dylan Wentworth

    Please don’t give them any ideas.

    Because when the Supra is 86’d again (no pun, seriously no pun intended), that’s what they’re going to have… a Supra TRD CUV

    • yomama

      C’mon, they aren’t monsters like Mitsubishi ….

  • yomama

    I actually like it more than the new “supra” If anything it looks like a poor mans Urus…

  • Jay

    Better looking than the Mitsubishi eclipse cross.

  • Socarboy

    Someone had to be on some serious drugs to even think of doing such a rendering

  • sidewaysspin

    Actually it does work a bit. If Porsche can build those ugly brutish contraptions that look remotely like a 911 then why can’t other brands try something similar?

  • Agus Hillairet

    Considering that a crossover mustang is coming, this seems like a good competition to the GLC, q4, etc. in my opinion looks way better than the any mitsubishi SUV for sure
