Written by Parkers on

This is the seventh incarnation of the Toyota Celica. It's been around since 1999, but the sharp, aggressive shape still looks fresh, a testament to how good a design it was. This model was never developed with rallying in mind, so there is no four-wheel-drive turbocharged version. But that doesn't make it a wimp. It still manages to deliver a decent driving experience and Toyota's reputation for reliability is a significant draw for most customers.

Easy to overlook, with RX-8, Crossfire and 350Z hogging all the recent coupé limelight but Celica is still a nice car. Recent GT model wears a bodykit worthy of The Fast and the Furious.
