In August 1990, the second-generation convertible was added to the fifth-generation Celica line that had debuted in September 1989. As with the previous model generation, ASC (American Sunroof Corporation) undertook the conversion in the U.S., attaching a power soft top on the Celica body. The durable and water-repellent soft top employed the Stayfast fabric made of a three-ply acrylic composite. A dynamic combination of curved lines and surfaces gave the Celica convertible its unique styling. In terms of mechanism, the most prominent feature of this model was the 4-wheel-steering system (dual-mode 4WS) which was the first for Toyota. A naturally aspirated 1,998 cc 165 PS engine (3S-GE) was combined with a 5-speed manual transmission, and the layout was front-engine, front-wheel-drive.
Plant Tahara plant, American Sunroof Corporation.
"Celica" is Spanish for "celestial" or "heavenly."
