The Celica’s last days were its best. Toyota made tripled-figure sales after the new model debuted. This was a better hatchback sports coupe that came with a lighter chassis, a new double-wishbone rear suspension and a fresh engine.

The standard base model was the Celica GT. It came with a 140-hp, 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine that could tow up to 2,500 pounds. The standard transmission was a 5-speed manual. Fans could opt for a 4-speed automatic which was available as an option. The GT-S was the famous model. Its 1.8-liter performed better than the 140-hp 4-cylinder. It also came with the variable valve timing and lift (VVTL-i) technology. The transmission was a 6-speed manual. Other additional features included power locks and windows, alloy wheels, better stereo and cruise control.

The responsive steering, strong brakes and fine-tuned suspension made the Celica a fun sports car to drive around. It was only less compliant over bumps when compared to its competition: the VW GTI, Acura RSX, and the Mitsubishi Eclipse. The GT-S also took some time to deliver due to its high rpm. It could be a challenge to handle in traffic as it easily grabbed the wrong gear.

A motivated and patient driver, however, would have found it rather adventurous. The interior suffered some shortcomings. The rear passenger seat was inhospitable. The plastic used on the dash was of poor quality while the back had substandard visibility. Despite being well-shaped, the front bucket seats were limited in adjustability.

Toyota made some changes in the years 2002 and 2003. The Celica was completely overhauled. Buyers could get an Action Package that included optional HID Xenon headlights and a JBL stereo.

The GT-S remains the best choice for buyers as it gives a real sport coupe-like experience. The standard Celica GT offers a great sporty look without having to get very deep into one’s pockets. It is also a decent performer.

The most recent Toyota Celica was built in response to complaints from consumers about the previous model not being very sporty. The millennial Celica was a racing machine that brought back the bang. Its appeal, however, was limited. Eventually, Toyota decided to replace the car with the relaxed, roomier and high-featured Scion tC.

The Celica provides a good option for a used sports convertible or coupe. The last models were fuel efficient, offered more space for cargo and passengers and were more reliable. The styling was somewhat experimental so don’t let the Celica’s design cheat you that it’s fast. Its price is also on the higher side compared to other quicker and less expensive competitors.
