The Celica has always been one of the most sensible ways of owning a sporty car. The styling is sleek, yet restrained. The mechanicals are reliable yet high-tech. The interior's snug, functional and loaded with convenience features, if a little plasticky.
Some might call the Celica somewhat soulless, and, compared to an Italian thoroughbred, they'd have a point. Yet Toyota's sporty coupe has been attracting loyal buyers again and again over the years. When you consider the no-fuss nature of the car, combined with looks that are always striking, the Celica makes a lot of sense for those who want a sports car without the ownership hassles that many specialist models bring with them.
