The CEO of Toyota has recently disclosed plans for the development of an upcoming sports coupe. Adding an exciting dimension to Toyota’s already impressive lineup. Presently, the GR86 and Supra are formidable coupe offerings, showcasing the brand’s commitment to performance and style. However, recognizing the need for a model to bridge the gap between these two exceptional cars. Toyota is gearing up to introduce the 2025 Toyota Celica.
Anticipated to share key characteristics with its coupe counterparts, the GR86 and Supra, the 2025 Toyota Celica is expected to leverage their successful features. While drawing inspiration from its predecessors, the Celica aims to carve its unique identity by presenting a fresh design and incorporating innovative features. This strategic approach seeks to attract existing enthusiasts of Toyota’s coupe models and captivate a new and diverse customer base. As Toyota continues to evolve its lineup, the upcoming Celica is poised to make a significant impact in the world of sports coupes.
2025 Toyota Celica GT
The GT model will be the most expensive and well-equipped variant of the new Celica. It will come as an ultimate sporty trim with all-wheel drive and the most powerful powertrain that will be available for the 2025 Toyota Celica GT. But it will not stop there. We expect upgrades both on the interior and exterior of this model. Starting with the engine, it will get a turbocharged 2.5-liter powertrain that will be able to produce 320 horsepower. This mill will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2025 Toyota Celica GT will be able to go from 0 to 60 mpg in 4.5 seconds, and we expect the maximum top speed to be limited to 155mph. Also, this model will stand on sporty 21-inch wheels, and it will be wrapped in premium, extreme-performance tires.
We expect this model to get an upgraded suspension that will allow it to handle race tracks and sharp corners with ease.
Changes will not happen just under the hood; we will see improvements in the exterior of the car, which will get a rear spoiler and a more aerodynamic front fascia with unique futuristic headlights.
Also, the interior will get upgrades, like new premium sports seats. ambient lighting and a new premium info-intertainment system.
2025 Toyota Celica Specifications
The specifications of the 2025 Toyota Celica will vary depending on the trim level. Standard models will come with an engine that has a displacement of 2 liters. There will be two variations of this engine. one with 220 horsepower and one with 270. All these models will come with rear-wheel drive, and just the GT trim will come with all-wheel drive. There is also a rumor that the new Celica will share a 3.0-liter engine with a Supra. This can happen if Toyota decides to offer a 2025 Toyota Celica in a GR variant.
All engine options will be paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and it will not be offered as a manual car.
2025 Toyota Celica Design
Toyota will redesign the 2025 Celica. And it will share a lot of features with two other sporty coupes from Toyota. But we still expect to see a unique modern design with plenty of fresh design choices. The things that this model will share are probably tech and safety features.
From the renders we found online, we do not doubt that the new Celica will breathe fresh air into the car industry. The front facia should have an aggressive look with unique LED headlights. Also, special care will be taken about cars’ air resistance ratings.
The interior of the new 2025 Toyota Celica will be modern and well-equipped. The leather seats will offer good comfort and lumbar support. The info-intertainment system will probably be shared with a 2024 Supra, and it will be an 8.8-inch touchscreen. This system will offer all modern connectivity options, like Android Auto and Apple Car Play.
The new Toyota Sense system will take care of the safety of the new Celica. It will offer the latest safety features and car handling controls.
Price and Release Date
The release date of the new 2025 Toyota Celica should be announced at the end of 2023. Toyota has already made an official statement that they will add two more sports cars to their lineup, and we hope that one of them will be the new generation of Celica.
With a starting price of around $37.000 for a base model and $45.000 for a GT model, we expect this car to be positioned between their main rivals. And those are the Jaguar F-Type, Porsche 718, and Subaru BRZ.
Toyota also has two models that are close to specifications and designed with a new Celica. That is the new Toyota GR86 and cheaper trims of Supra.
But thanks to the new design and well-known nameplate, the new Celica should achieve good sales results and bring refreshment to the car market.
