1982 Toyota Cressida

The Cressida, Toyota's luxury vehicle, was completely redone the year before and therefor did not change for 1982.

The 1982 Toyota Cressida was available as a wagon or a sedan. The engine was a 2.8-liter, 116-horsepower six cylinder, and it came standard with an automatic transmission. A five-speed manual was available as an option. The Cressida was known for coming with many standard features not typically found in cars of that era, like a cassette player and air conditioning.

Drivers love the 1982 Toyota Cressida, with some saying it was the best car they ever drove. They say the interior is extremely well equipped, the engine is amazingly quiet, the rear wheel drive makes it fun to drive, and if taken care of they last forever. Some more adventurous drivers also appreciate the all-rubber bumpers. Some have had rust problems, and many wish for a larger engine.
