About the Toyota Tercel
The Toyota Tercel was introduced in 1978 as Toyota's sub-compact, entry-level car. The Tercel saw many incarnations during its lifetime, including as a sedan, coupe, wagon, and hatchback.
The Tercel was Toyota's first front-wheel drive car, and was originally named the Corolla Tercel, to capitalize on the sedan's popularity. The first Tercels had a 60 horsepower engine. By the end, it had gained a 93-horsepower engine.
In addition to its many body styles, the Tercel was available in a variety of trims over its 20-year run, including a 4WD version with a sixth, extra-low gear. In 1988, Toyota introduced a super-economy version, the Tercel EZ, which came equipped with rubber floor mats and vinyl seating, but was lacking basics such as sun visors.
It was discontinued in 1998 in favor of Toyota's new sub-compact, the Echo, which was introduced in 2000 and subsequently discontinued as well.
