The Toyota Celica name (pronounced /ˈsɛlɨkə/) has been applied to a series of popular coupes made by the Japanese company Toyota. The name is ultimately derived from the Latin word coelica meaning "heavenly" or "celestial".

Throughout its life span the Celica has been powered by various four cylinder engines. The most significant change occurred in August 1985, when the car’s drive layout was changed from rear wheel drive to front wheel drive. During the first three generations, American market Celicas were powered by various versions of Toyota’s R series engines.

In October 1975, The entire Celica lineup was given a facelift, with a revised front bumper and grille arrangement. The new model numbers were RA23 worldwide (RA24 US) for the coupe, and RA28 worldwide (RA29 US) for the liftback.

The Liftback was introduced for Japanese market in April 1973, but not until 1976 for export models. Models for home market Liftback were 1600ST, 1600GT (TA27), 2000ST, and 2000GT (RA25 and RA28). The American Liftback is a GT (RA29) with a 2.2 liter 20R engine. All the Liftback models, which are commonly referred to as the ‘Mustang’ shape, have flat noses. Although there is no "B" pillar in the Liftback, the rear windows do not roll down (as they do in the hardtop coupe). Although they looked the same, there were a few minor visible differences. The facelifted coupe is coded RA23 with an 18R engine, or RA24 with a 20R engine. Also available was the TA23, which was similar to the RA23, but with the T-Series engine. The RA23 and RA28 had a more distinctive bulge in the bonnet, or hood, which was lacking in the TA22 or RA20 Coupe and in the TA27 and RA25 Liftback Celica. The TA22 Celica also had removable vents mounted in the bonnet, which the RA23 and RA28 lacked. The RA series also had an elongated nose to accommodate the larger engine. The door vents, fuel filler cap, and interior were also different between the TA and RA series.

For 1976-1977, the Liftback was released with the 18R-G Twincam engine (except US) with a Yamaha head and running gear. This engine produced significantly more power than the 18R-C. Peak power was about 100 kW (134 hp) @ 6000 rpm.

Toyota Celica hieß eine Coupéreihe des japanischen Automobilherstellers Toyota, die von 1970 bis 2005 in sieben Generationen produziert wurde.

Das von Toyota im Jahr 1971 in Deutschland eingeführte Modell Celica basierte, insbesondere in Bezug auf den Fahrzeugrahmen, die Motorisierung und die Technik, auf der damals bereits bestehenden Limousinen-Baureihe Toyota Carina. Durch alle Generationen wurde das Konzept eines zweitürigen, viersitzigen Sportcoupés mit einem Reihenvierzylindermotor beibehalten. Die größte signifikante Veränderung am Fahrzeugkonzept erfolgte 1986, als der Antrieb von Heckantrieb auf Frontantrieb umgestellt und 1988 um eine Version mit Allradantrieb ergänzt wurde.

Bis zur Ablösung dieser ersten Celica-Generation nach sieben Jahren erfolgte 1976 eine Aufwertung der Modellreihe durch die leistungsstärkere Variante Celica Liftback 2000 GT mit 2000-cm³-Motor (RA28), der mittels zweier Doppelvergaser 88 kW (120 PS) erzeugte. Damit sollte zu einer Zeit, in der der Begriff GTI noch unbekannt war, den PS-starken Modellen wie dem Ford Capri und Opel GT, aber auch dem Datsun 260 begegnet werden.
