The fourth-generation Celica was released in August 1985, replacing the previous rear-wheel-drive layout with a front-wheel-drive configuration. The new Celica transversely mounted the engine in the front, sharing the platform with the front-engine, front-wheel-drive Corona/Carina. The body type was reduced to a hatchback coupé alone, which featured aerodynamic surface design with a drag coefficient of 0.31. Selected model grades came with a ground-breaking digital instrument panel with color LCD. In October 1986, the GT-Four full-time 4-wheel-drive model was released, equipped with a DOHC turbocharged engine (3S-GTEU) producing 185 PS/24.5 kgm. It was with this model that the Celica began participating in the World Rally Championship (WRC) races in earnest. In 1990, Carlos Sainz rode the Celica GT-Four to win the WRC Driver's title, the first honor of the kind for a Japanese-made car.

In October 1987, a convertible with a hydraulic power top was added to the Celica line (on a made-to-order basis). The modification into a convertible was undertaken by ASC (American Sunroof Corporation) in the U.S.
Plant Tahara plant, American Sunroof Corporation.
"Celica" is Spanish for "celestial" or "heavenly."
