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.
