History of Toyota Celica
The Celica is a sports car produced by Japanese car manufacturing company Toyota from 1970 up to 2006. The Celica gained its name from the Latin word coelica, which means "heavenly" or "celestial". During its extensive lifespan the Celica has featured a number of different trim levels, engines and body styles, gaining popularity around the world. There have been seven generations of Celica, and many motoring publications praise the Toyota''s reliability record and high engineering qualities - all of which help to keep the Toyota Celica popular with used car buyers. The Toyota Celica was a popular car, with many styling variations throughout its extensive lifespan. With seven generations, the Celica has a good reliability record and high build quality.
First And Second Generation Toyota Celica (1970 - 1977)
At the Tokyo Motor Show in 1970 Toyota launched its new Toyota Celica vehicle, designed to put an emphasis on great styling and driving enjoyment.
For export markets outside of Japan the Celica was offered in three different levels of trim; LT, ST and GT. These first-generation Celicas can be broken down into two models, the first was the original with a slanted nose which was released from 1970 to 1975 and came equipped with a 2T, 2T-G 1.6-litre, or 18R 2.0-litre engine. The second model had a flat nose and a slightly longer wheelbase, and appeared in Japan in 1974 but was not exported until 1976. In October 1975 the Celica lineup was given a facelift, with a new front bumper and grille design.
The second-generation Celica was released in 1978, and was again available in both Coupe and Liftback forms. It was designed in the USA by Toyota''s Calty Research Design studio in California. Japan and some export markets had 1.6-, 1.8-, and 2.0-litre powerplants. This new generation offered better safety, power and fuel economy than previous models, and won Motor Trend''s Import Car of the Year Award for 1978.
Third And Fourth Generation Toyota Celica (1981 - 1989)
1981 saw the introduction of the third-generation Celica, which was initially available in coupe and liftback forms - with the liftback being far more popular. Styling was changed considerably from previous models in the third gen car.
The Celica was facelifted in 1983, which included fully retractable headlights and a restyled grille. The Australian, European, Japanese, and general export model Celicas came with rear side vents, which are popular with enthusiasts. European markets were offered the Celica as 1600ST with 2T engine, 2000XT (21R), and 2000GT (18R-G).
The fourth gen model, launched in 1985, was very different. It was an all-new design with front-wheel drive, a rounded body and new 2.0l four-cylinder engines. This generation was no longer built on the Toyota A platform, and instead moved to the Toyota T platform.
Fifth And Sixth Generation Toyota Celica (1989 - 1999)
The fifth generation Celica was launched in September 1989. This model received new Super Round organic styling, upgraded wheels and tyres, more powerful engines with better cooling systems. Toyota engineers say that this new styling and lack of straight edges increased strength without adding weight.
In Europe trim levels for the Celica were 1.6 ST-i, 2.0 GT-i 16, and GT-Four. The 2.0 GT-i 16 Cabriolet was offered only in certain countries. Only the 2.0 GT-i 16 Liftback and GT-Four were officially sold in the UK. Toyota facelifted the Celica for the 1992 model year.
Toyota launched the sixth-generation Celica in 1993. Styling of the new sixth gen Celica was very popular in motoring publications, with many stating similarities with the Supra. New safety equipment, including driver and then passenger airbags, as well as anti-lock brakes were available on all models.
Seventh Generation Toyota Celica (1999 - 2006)
Production and sales of the seventh-generation Celica began in 1999. This new model resembled the XYR concept aside from the front bumper and rear spoiler, getting rid of the previously available coupe body. In 2004, some publications rated the Celica as one of the best cars to purchase with regards to fuel economy. The Celica ceased to be exported from July 2005, before the last Celica was rolled off production line on April 21, 2006. During its last year the Celica was only sold in Japan.
