2000 Toyota Celica Overview

Overall user score
Based on 61 reviews

The Toyota Celica was completely redesigned for 2000. The new Celica was lighter, cheaper, and more powerful. The 2000 Celica got a few more angles than the previous generation, but it still maintained the round, sleek shape that has become the Celica's signature. The 2000 Celica also had some new safety features, including an automatic fuel delivery system shutoff when the airbags deploy, a first for any Toyota.

The convertible was discontinued for the 2000 Celica, leaving only the hatchback. The hatchback GT came with a 1.8-liter, 140-hp engine. The GT-S got the 180 horses and was available with a 6-speed manual transmission, a first for the Celica. The GT-S also has distinctive exterior and interior features. The GT engine got about 27/34 mpg, and the GT-S engine got about 23/30 mpg.

The Celica's new style once again proved to be popular with drivers. Toyota received praise for avoiding the conservative look that most of their cars have. Drivers also liked the extra power in the GT-S, although drivers complain that the GT is still too slow. As with Celicas that came before, drivers find the interior to be cramped, especially in the back seat.
