Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The Supra offers optional Emergency Braking that uses rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The RC F doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

Both the Supra and the RC F have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available blind spot warning systems, rear parking sensors and rear cross-path warning.

Toyota pays for scheduled maintenance on the Supra for 1 year and 15000 miles longer than Lexus pays for maintenance for the RC F (2/25000 vs. 1/10,000).

There are over 5 times as many Toyota dealers as there are Lexus dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Supra’s warranty.

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Supra is 1.6 inches wider in the front and 1.2 inches wider in the rear than on the RC F.

The Supra’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (51.5% to 48.5%) than the RC F’s (55% to 45%). This gives the Supra more stable handling and braking.

The Supra 3.0 Premium handles at 1.07 G’s, while the RC F pulls only .95 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Supra Launch Edition executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1 seconds quicker than the RC F (23.9 seconds @ .84 average G’s vs. 24.9 seconds @ .8 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Supra’s turning circle is .7 feet tighter than the RC F’s (34.7 feet vs. 35.4 feet).

The Toyota Supra may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 400 to 500 pounds less than the Lexus RC F.

The Supra is 1 foot shorter than the RC F, making the Supra easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

As tested by Car and Driver while under full throttle, the interior of the Supra Launch Edition is quieter than the RC F (84 vs. 85 dB).

The Supra’s power window, power lock, power mirror and cruise control switches are lit from behind, making them plainly visible and easier to operate at night. The RC F’s cruise control switches are unlit, making them difficult to find at night and operate safely.
