Hey, just wondering what everyone thinks about the latest Celica. The body looks great, but mechanically (apart from a bit extra horses) isn't it just a glorified Corolla??

uuuum... that would be 3 out of 4 of the 5th generation and some of the 6th gens too.. The GT, GT-S and ST models of the 5th gen celica were all "equiped" with 5sfe engines and so did some of the 6th gens, the specifics of which though iam not sure but some did come out with the later generation 3sge.

Its in the body style, interior, options.
You don't get the TRD Panasoinc Corolla. You don't get rear disc in the Corolla, until the XRS. The 5 gen Celica's control are right at driver's finger tip. 5 gen got 10 speaker option.

Can we go back to my original statement??? The new celica (apart from it's CD player), interior design and body shape is basically a Corolla. All the important bits such as the engine, suspension and running gear is Corolla!
