The seventh-generation Sprinter Trueno was introduced in June 1991. The wheelbase was lengthened together with the length and width, and the retractable headlamps adopted in the fifth- and sixth-generation models were replaced with non-standard shaped fixed headlamps. The DOHC engine lineup included a 1,500 cc "high-mecha" twin-cam (105 PS) unit, 1,600 cc "high-mecha" and sports twin-cam 20-valve units producing 115 PS and 160 PS, respectively, and a 1,600 cc supercharged 170 PS unit (4A-GZ). The suspension was a 4-wheel MacPherson strut system, and high-grade models came with a super strut front suspension that was first adopted on the Celica in 1993.
