Visibility

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Great car but horrible blind spots. Its very difficult to see out the rear window, especially over the spoiler. Side windows offer even less visibility. You have to get used to driving using solely your mirrors really.

Full 2004 Toyota Celica Review

What's New for 2004

High-intensity discharge headlights are now optional on all 2004 Toyota Celica models.

Introduction

Before the current generation arrived, Celicas were often chastised for being slow, overweight and a little on the expensive side. But not anymore, as the latest Celica is a sharp performer that's as nimble as it is stylish. Designed in California, the Celica's cab-forward shape features a high-fashion look with race-car design elements. Sharp-edge panels, dramatic plunging curves, a tall tail and a radically lowered front fascia create stark contrasts. In high-performance GT-S trim, the 2004 Toyota Celica is the martial arts action hero of sport coupes. It is quick, nimble and an absolute joy to drive on curvy roads thanks to ultraresponsive steering and a tightly controlled suspension. Used for commuting, however, the Celica's somewhat stiff ride and high-strung powertrain can take their toll. If all you want is a sporty look, more relaxed cruisers like the Hyundai Tiburon or the Mitsubishi Eclipse might be better choices. Or, if you want something in the middle, the Acura RSX is another coupe worth considering. Those cars aside, the 2004 Toyota Celica is a solid performer that will rarely leave you wishing for more when the road turns twisty.
