Used Rivals

MAZDA MX6 2D COUPE (1994-1997)
TO most people the swoopy MX6 is the best looking of this group. It is also well equipped with air-conditioning and an airbag included. The smooth 2.5-litre V6 is the most powerful of this group with 121kW, which gives the MX6 the performance edge.

THE SFX Coupe does not match the Celica for refinement but it is hard to beat as a value for money buy. The equipment list has just about everything except air-conditioning and the 2.0-litre, twin cam engine has enough power (102kW) to match the Celica's performance.

HONDA's Prelude is close to the Celica in terms of space and practicality but is better equipped and an airbag and anti-lock brakes are standard on later models. There is 118kW from the 2.3- litre engine so performance is similar to the Calibra. The dashboard design lets the interior down.

THE Calibra looks good and is the only car in this group which is a comfortable long distance four-seater. The lively 2.0-litre engine almost matches the MX6 for performance and is better equipped than the Celica. Minus points are an old-fashioned dash with indicator control on the left and quality which does not match the Japanese.
