New and Used Toyota Celica for Sale Philippines
If you’re looking to quench your need for speed, you’re likely looking for a high performance car with the looks to match. Well your search may end with the Toyota Celica Philippines. A coupe that scores impressively on both counts, the Celica is as good to drive as it is to look at. As part of the Toyota marque from 1971 to 2006, the Celica constantly delivered strong performance, stylish looks, and good fuel economy, all at a relatively affordable price.
Though most race car aficionados are familiar with the Celica’s coupe version from its later years, earlier models also came in different body styles, including a hatchback, notchback with trunk, and convertible. The vehicle’s last year of production was 2005, and by then, the vehicle had been limited to just two trims—the Toyota Celica GT and the Toyota Celica GT-S. The last generation of the Toyota Celica—it’s seventh—was arguably its best, so those looking for the most driving enjoyment will do well to buy a Celica from this generation, which lasted from 1999 to 2006.
Those who miss the Toyota Celica Philippines will be pleased to know that Toyota plans to resurrect the vehicle and release a new, updated model. Information about the brand new Toyota Celica is scarce, but reliable sources say that Toyota plans to release it very soon.

Toyota Celica Review in the Philippines
Toyota Celica Specs and Performance
The base Celica model was the GT, which housed a 140 hp 1.8-liter 4-cylinder 1ZZ-FE engine at the front bay. Though this Toyota Celica engine was a solid performer, much of the praise was heaped upon its higher end sibling, the 1.8-liter 2ZZ-FE engine equipped in the GT-S. This particular engine supplied a whopping 180 hp output, courtesy of its Variable Valve Timing and Lift technology.
The GT engine is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the GT-S one has a 6-speed manual. A 4-speed automatic is an available option on both models, but the GT-S automatic has an added manual-shift provision feature on its steering wheel buttons. Regardless of the transmission option you choose, the Celica’s steering remains responsive, with minimal body lean during curves and reliable stability on highways.
Toyota Celica Fuel Consumption
The two Toyota Celica engines come with a bit of a predicament—the 140 hp may be slower, but it provides better fuel efficiency. On the contrary, the speedier 180 hp powertrain’s tradeoff is that it consumes more gas. Choose one or the other according to your priority.
Second hand Toyota Celica fuel consumption:
- Toyota Celica 2006: 31.9 MPG average rating
- Toyota Celica 2005: 26.7 MPG average rating
- Toyota Celica 2004: 29.5 MPG average rating
