Toyota Celica 5th Generation


The fifth generation Celica was introduced in September 1989.They received revised styling, upgraded wheels and tires, and more power.

Anti-lock brakes were available on all models, as were numerous luxury items — all were standard on the All-Trac model though. With its leather interior, ten-speaker sound1990 Toyota Celica All-Trac system and power-operated driver’s seat and sunroof included as standard equipment, the All-Trac was the most expensive Celica yet. With its 200-horsepower turbocharged engine, it was also the most powerful Celica yet.

Japanese domestic market models are S-R, Z-R, GT-R, Active Sports (with active suspension), and GT-Four.

The S-R and Z-R are powered by 3S-FE engine. The GT-R and Active Sports come with 3S-GE. The 3S-GTE in the GT-Four features air-to-air intercooler and CT26 twin entry turbo to eliminate exhaust gas interference. The Full-time 4WD system in the GT-Four has viscous coupling limited slip center differential and Torsen rear differential

In North America, the GT and GT-S were powered by the 2.2 L 5S-FE, while the ST sported the DOHC 16-valve, 1.6 L 4A-FE. Celica for North America has aero (non-folding) door mirrors, and amber front corner lights.

Trim levels for Europe are 1.6 ST-i, 2.0 GT-i 16, and GT-Four. The 2.0 GT-i 16 Cabriolet was offered only in certain European countries. Models for Australia are SX Coupe, SX Liftback, GT-Four and also 150 units limited edition GT-Four Group A Rally.

In August 1990, the GT-Four A and Convertible were added into Japanese line up. Super Live Sound System with 10-speakers is standard on the GT-Four A, and optional in other models, but S-R. The 20th Anniversary GT-R came in December 1990 to celebrate 20 years of Celica.

The special rally edition of 5000 units was known as the GT-Four RC in Japan, Carlos Sainz in Europe (in honour of their famous WRC driver), or Group A Rallye in Australia. Special features include:
* a different intercooler which TTE wanted so they could more easily tune their WRC car;
* different hood, the emphasis of which is to get rid of heat as fast as possible, (instead of scooping in air, as is the case with the standard ST185 hood);
* different bumper which is much lighter than the standard one.

Out of 5000 units, 1800 were for Japanese market, 3000 were allocated to Europe, 150 in Australia, 25 in Singapore, and very few made a trip to New Zealand and general markets.

In August 1991 for 1992 model year Toyota facelifted the Celica.
