1983 Toyota Celica Overview

The 1983 Toyota Celica saw another addition to its lineup: the GT-S coupe and hatchback. The GT-S was a response to consumers who felt that the Celica had lost much of the sports-car appeal it had in the first generation. It came with flared fenders, larger wheels, sport-tuned suspension, and unique interior finishes.

The 1983 Celica was available as a coupe or a hatchback. The coupe was available as a base-level ST, the midlevel GT or the sporty GT-S. The hatchback was available as a GT or GT-S. The 2.4-liter engine got a slight increase in horsepower, from 96 to 105. Gas mileage was about 26-38 mpg.

The1983 Celica GT-S was an instant hit. Drivers loved the way it handled and found the eight-way adjustable seats to be extremely comfortable. It also was still an extremely well-built and reliable Toyota. While the other Celicas remained popular, the GT-S was the star of the lineup.
