2005 Toyota Celica

The 2005 was virtually unchanged from the previous year. The biggest news for the Celica was that 2005 would be the last year it was produced.

The 2005 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.

Celica fans said goodbye with heavy hearts. Like with all the models of this generation, many 2005 Toyota Celica owners found the car to be too slow, especially the GT, for a car marketed as a sports car. Some also found visibility to be poor out the back window, and many complained about the tiny backseat. Still, legions of Celica fans loved the car for its good looks while still having a reliable Toyota engine.
