Toyota makes excellent cars and you can rely on the manufacturer that you are going to get a quality vehicle that will be with you for a long time, and they’ve proven that over the years.Back in the day, Toyota Celica was a great car, drivable, and reliable, but racing wise this sport compact car could not compete with the big boys.

Exterior and Interior
The Toyota recently moved in direction of bolder designs, more modern and aggressive so we can expect the new 2017 Toyota Celica would not be an exception. It will most likely receive aerodynamic body lines spiced up with dramatic curves and turbulent lines. The front will most probably get pronounced lower false grill, stylish dusk-sensing HID headlights and LED daytime running lights. We can also expect front spoiler accompanied by side and rear skirts and dual exhaust tips. Also, the 17-alloy wheels are safe bet.
Inside, we can look forward to modern dashboard design, leather upholstery with contrast stitching, updated infotainment system and list of safety features.
The new 2017 Toyota Celica will be, most likely, powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which output will measure between 235 and 258 horsepower. If it is coupled with a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic continuously variable transmission. It can easily deliver 27 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway.
