Toyota Celica GT-S(2001)

The is about as old and familiar a name as is in theautomotive world. It’s around for years. The current in 2000, is the seventh update its inception back in 1971.Through all editions, the Celica has always one thing: a small,nicely made, car that, in a pinch, can hold people. Iguess the older we the more we would emphasize the small.

When, at great risk to our we first lowered ourselves thebucket seats, we took an dislike to the GT-S. It felt as were sitting in a hole—not a feeling unless you’re a or awoodchuck. Fortunately we discovered a crank by which you canraise and the seat cushion. After find, our perspective improvedmarkedly. The position is certainly acceptable, but you the racy styling of the car by sitting to the ground andlooking up at the world.

The Celica is a hatchback, which add to its utility. The rear seatscan be giving it about as much space as an OldsmobileIntrigue sedan.

Visibility is pretty good. most cars with deck lids, theCelica, a lot of side glass and a large window, makes itreasonably to see out the back.
