1996 Toyota Tercel Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 9 reviews
The 1996 Toyota Tercel didnâ€™t see too many changes. The standard coupe got the option of cloth seats, whereas before it only came with vinyl. Other than that, the 1996 Tercel stayed largely the same.
The 1996 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.
Owners love their 1996 Toyota Tercels for their reliability and excellent gas mileage. Drivers admit that the car doesnâ€™t have many frills, but most Tercel owners are just looking for something that gets them safely from point A to point B. Some drivers complain of the 1996 Tercelâ€™s uncomfortable seats and small trunk.
