In October 1993, the third-generation Carina ED was released, sharing a new platform with the renewed Celica and Corona Exiv models. The body width was enlarged to 1,740 mm, putting the new Carina ED into the "3 number" vehicle category. The exterior design was changed from pillarless to pillared hardtop styling, while the wheelbase and the body height were expanded by 55 mm and 10 mm, respectively, to secure larger cabin space.

The choice of 2-liter engines was the same as that for the Celica, consisting of "high-mecha" twin-cam and sports twin-cam 16-valve units with an output of 140 PS and 180 PS, respectively. A 1.8-liter "high-mecha" twin-cam 16-valve 115 PS unit was also available with the Carina ED. In May 1994, a full-time 4-wheel-drive version was added to the 3S-GE engine model.

The Carina ED line ended with the third-generation models in April 1998.
