1995 Toyota Celica Review

A sporty compact great for every day driving.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 1995 Toyota Celica brings back the convertible option, which was absent the previous year. After being shipped from Japan as a coupe, the convertible is sent to the American Sunroof Corporation, where the top is cut off and the body is reinforced. A three-layer cloth top that includes a glass rear window is then installed. The convertible is only available as a GT model, which includes a more powerful four-cylinder engine than the base Celica ST.

For all body styles, the 1995 Toyota Celica GT provides the more powerful engine but adds little to the standard features list inside or out. Instead, all Celicas function as a very sporty, stripped-down two-door compact with distinguished looks. The price tag, even for the more powerful GT models, is relatively low while the fuel-efficiency is high. The sleek and compact design, combined with a well-tuned rack-and-pinion steering system, grants it great handling and makes it extremely fun to drive.

The Range

Body Styles: coupe, hatchback, convertible
Engines: 1.8-liter four-cylinder, 2.2-liter four-cylinder
Transmissions: five-speed manual, four-speed automatic
Models: Toyota Celica ST, Toyota Celica GT

What's New

Most of the 1995 Toyota Celica line is exactly the same as it was the previous year with one notable exception: the convertible model returns.

Exterior

The 1995 Toyota Celica is described as ""Supra-esque,"" referring to its exposed quad headlight setup and the soda bottle styling on the sides. The most noticeable styling difference is the three different body styles, but there is little to distinguish a standard ST from the more powerful GT other than the small exterior emblems. The GT models do, however, include 15-inch wheels, while the base models come with 14-inch wheels. Both models can be upgraded to include alloy wheels. Additionally, a rear spoiler is optional on the base model and standard on the GT.

Interior

The 1995 Toyota Celica mimics the overall design aims: minimalist, practical, and easy to use. There are no frills here; even air-conditioning is optional. But the extensive options list creates the possibility for comfort in all this functionality, and in addition to A/C also includes power windows and doors, CD player, cruise control, alarm system, and power moonroof. The GT model includes power windows and doors standard and comes with the additional option of sports seats and leather upholstery.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Toyota Celica is not a true sports car, and its power numbers reflect this fact. What it is, however, is a functional compact that provides ample power in a fun-to-drive package. The base model includes a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that achieves 110 horsepower. This is a new motor introduced the previous year and produces 115 lb-ft of torque. The GT model uses a 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine that was carried over from the previous generation. This engine increases horsepower to 130 and torque to 145 lb-ft. Both models handle great on curvy roads, using the fine-tuned rack-and-pinion steering system. Both also come with a standard five-speed manual transmission that can be upgraded to a four-speed automatic.

Safety

All models of 1995 Toyota Celica come equipped with standard driver and passenger airbags. The body of the convertible model is reinforced to provide additional strength. Four-channel anti-lock brakes are available as an option on all models, as well.

EPA Fuel Economy

Toyota Celica: 24/31 mpg city/highway
