The Celica was a compact sports model sold by Toyota across four decades since 1970. At times available as coupe, convertible and liftback body styles - and latterly front-wheel drive after launching as a rear-driver - the Celica had mixed success as a driver's car. Slow sales led to its demise in 2006 (though in 2012 a spiritual successor called the Toyota 86 was released).
