2000 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback


The 7th gen Celica is certainly a welcome change from the previous model. Following the recent trend, new high-revving, powerful, yet efficient (excellent fuel economy!)engines have made this car a blast. My GT is pretty quick, but the Celica's selling point has never been it's speed alone - it's the handling! This car handles like a go cart! What's great is that you get all of this with Toyota's typical reliability and quality attributes.

Best Features

The styling inside and out certainly draws attention and is fresh everyday. The driving position is particularly good The engine provides good high rpm power while giving a good amount of low end torque as well, thanks to VVT-i. Opening the car up on twisting backroads is incredibly fun!

Worst Features

A power antenna would be nice - the fixed mast is unsightly. On the interior, while the materials are of good quality initially, the plastics can scratch fairly easily, particularly with the seatbelt tongue on the door. A little caution avoids this easily, however.
