Car reviews - Toyota - Celica - ZR coupe
25 Jan 2001
DUAL airbags and force-limiting front seatbelt pretensioners are standard equipment on all new Celica models while side airbags, contained within the front seats, are standard on ZR and optional on SX. The body has been reinforced significantly to improve performance in frontal and side impacts.
High-strength sheetmetal is used around the car. Anti-intrusion beams are located in each door. The new model features a brake pedal retraction system, designed to minimise injury in frontal impacts. Warning lamps are provided for unbelted occupants, door ajar and hatch ajar. The rear seatbelts have an automatic locking retractor designed to hold child restraints and baby capsules firmly in place. Celica is a product of Toyota's Global Outstanding Assessment (GOA) program which concentrates on improving occupant protection, particularly in front end collisions.
