1995 Toyota Tercel

The 1995 Toyota Tercel was totally redesigned for the model year. The change in appearance was subtle, but the new Tercel was sportier and more modern than before. The 1995 Tercel also got some new safety features, including standard dual airbags, a conventional seat belt for the front passenger seat, and side beams. The engine was all new and more powerful, and a four-speed automatic and five-speed manual transmission was available in the DX models.

The 1995 Toyota Tercel came in three trim levels. The coupe was offered as a base or DX model, and the sedan was available only as a DX. All shared the same 1.5-liter, 93 horsepower four cylinder engine. Not surprisingly, the 1995 Toyota Tercel got excellent gas mileage, at about 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.

Drivers love the 1995 Toyota Tercel because it is affordable, reliable, and gets excellent fuel economy. Owners admit that their cars are not pretty or luxurious, but Tercel owners are interested in value more than looks. Drivers of the ’95 Tercel complain that the trunk and back seat are much too small, the car can be noisy, and that the seats can get uncomfortable during a long drive.
