1992 Toyota Tercel

The 1992 Tercel entered the model year virtually unchanged, since it had just been overhauled the year before.

The 1992 Toyota Tercel came in four trim levels. The coupe was offered as a base or DX (deluxe) model, and the sedan was available as a DX or LE. All shared the same 1.5-liter, 82 horsepower four cylinder engine. Not surprisingly, the 1992 Toyota Tercel got excellent gas mileage, at about 30 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. The base models only came with a four-speed manual transmission, while the DX and LE models also had the choice of a three-speed automatic.

Drivers love the 1992 Toyota Tercel for its reliability and economy. The Tercel is not a luxury car, but that is just fine with Tercel owners, who say they’d rather not have a big car payment every month. Some complain that the back seat and trunk are too small, and others say the car can be unsafe in an accident because of its size.
