GTS 3dr Hatchback
2002 Toyota Celica

2002 Celica Photos
Sometimes beauty is more than skin deep. It's true of people more often than we like to admit. It's even more often true of machines. Experienced engineers will tell you that when it looks right, it works right.

That brings us to the current Toyota Celica, with its racy, razor-edge lines, looking like the very embodiment of high-technology performance. And guess what: Its looks aren't lying.

Celica is light on its feet and tenacious in turns. Its energetic engine loves to rev, and you can keep the mill spinning with a six-speed gearbox. One of our contributors compared the GT-S version to a motorcycle on four wheels, the automotive equivalent of a screaming, hyper-horsepower super-bike.

True, perhaps, except that Celica is no exotic. It's a straightforward little machine that's heavy on fun and light on the wallet.

Celica was redesigned for 2000, and has not changed significantly since then.
