2021 Toyota Celica
With the new Supra, as well as with a dynamic GT-86, Toyota is finally starting to look like the carmaker we knew in the 80s and 90s. According to the latest reports, things will become even better in the future. Not only that the next-generation 86 is coming, but the latest reports are also suggesting that another famous nameplate could come back. Yes, we are talking about the 2021 Toyota Celica, which should become a more basic sports car in the company’s lineup. We could see it already in a year or two, according to the latest reports.
- Lightweight, super maneuverable.
- Revival of the famous nameplate.
- Roadster version is possible.
- Still just a rumor.
Unlike the two aforementioned models, the 2021 Toyota Celica will be completely developed by the Japanese manufacturer, according to the latest reports.
Since the next-generation GT-86 is about to become far more powerful, which also means more expensive, there will be more than enough room for another, more basic sports car. This model would probably use Toyota’s new TNGA platform and probably feature all-wheel drive. Of course, we count on pretty compact dimensions and lightweight, just like it was the case with previous generations of the famous nameplate. Also, many reports are suggesting that a roadster version could be in the offer as well.
Of course, aesthetics will be one of the most interesting aspects to see. As we already mentioned, the new model is expected to be very compact. In terms of aesthetics, we expect a lof of inspiration from the new Supra and the upcoming second-generation GT-86. Of course, this model will be smaller and lighter, but it could come with a couple of distinctive details as well. On the inside, we count on a simplistic, Spartan design, without unnecessary details and too many tech features.
As we already mentioned, we expect to see the new 2021 Toyota Celica with all-wheel drive, at least as an option. When it comes to the engine, there is a couple of possibilities. It is still early to talk, but we presume that the new Celica won’t feature too much power. It will rather be light and maneuverable. Therefore, we don’t expect more than 200 horsepower under the hood. Which exact engine will find the place in this car, it is still hard to say.
2021 Toyota Celica Release Date and Price
Although the Japanese manufacturer really has a new sports car in plans, the 2021 Toyota Celica is still just a rumor. We are still waiting to hear something from the official about this model, so take the previous paragraphs with a big reserve.
