1998 Toyota Celica

For the 1998 model year, Toyota continued to streamline its Celica lineup, this time getting rid of the ST model, which was available as a hatchback and a coupe. The Limited Edition models were also discontinued, while the GT coupe was resurrected.

The 1998 Toyota Celica was available as a GT coupe, hatchback, and convertible. The hatchback was available with an optional sports package. The engine was a 2.2-liter engine, with 135 horsepower. Fuel economy was about 21 to 34 mpg.

Owners find their 1998 Toyota Celicas fun to drive, with excellent handling and cornering. Drivers also like the way these cars look, but they complain that the back seat is uncomfortable and that it needs a more powerful engine.
