2003 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


This is what I have to say about these certain Topics:
Fuel Economy: Excellent for a car of this style. A sport car style with great mileage. People will appreciate this car when gas prices shoot up. I get 33 mpg (mix highway/city). GTS model required premium gas.
Performance: Under powered but that's alright, but that is the trade off for good mileage. GT model gets 140hp while the GTS gets 180hp. Either model is fun to drive. If you think 140hp GT sucks compared to the GTS's 180hp, keep in mind that the 2013 VW golf hybrid turbo makes 170hp.. GT or GTS is equally a great buy. But if you like the sound of "Lift" (similar sound to VTEC) get the GTS.

Best Features

Handles very well. It is a FWD, good for economy and handling. This car is practical while looking good at the same time. Good amount of space in trunk. Small space in cockpit but if your under 6' than you are fine. Good Starter car for learning how to drive a standard. TRD action package is eye candy, I get endless compliments. This car is also quite rare, especially the TRD action package, thus gives a sense of of being "one-of-kind".

Worst Features

interior could have been resigned. Other than that, no other improvements are needed.
