Nothing Short Of Great Japanese Engineering by Jarvis
 — Even purchasing it used, I've had nothing but fun with it! The 1ZZ-FE is a small 1.8 liter engine, but you save on gas, and the VVT-i lets it go pretty quick for 140hp. It's very light, so it handles ... Read More

2001 Toyota Celica

The 2001 Toyota Celica was did not see any changes, as it was redesigned the year before.

The 2001 Toyota Celica was available only as a hatchback, which came as a GT or sportier GT-S. The GT came with a 1.8 liter, 140 horsepower engine. The sportier GT-S, which had distinctive exterior and interior styling, came with a 1.8-liter, 180 horsepower engine. This generation was also the first Celica to come available with a six-speed manual transmission. The GT engine got about 27/34 mpg, and the GT-S engine got about 23/30 mpg.

Drivers love the look of the 2001 Celica, some even comparing it to a Ferrari. Owners of the car also love that they can get a sporty-looking vehicle that comes with Toyota reliability. Many complain that the back seat is too small, and some say that visibility is poor to the rear.
