Car reviews - Toyota - Celica - ZR coupe
15 Mar 2001
By TERRY MARTIN
BOOT space is hardly cavernous but acceptable for a coupe of this size. Luggage capacity for the Gen VII Celica has increased 14 per cent (or 40 litres) over the preceding model to 323 litres. The rear loading height is now down to 786mm which improves access to the cargo area. The luggage area has a flat load floor, an under-floor storage area, luggage tie-down hooks, an oddments tray and a hook for a shopping bag. The rear bench seat split-folds 50/50 and has red-coloured "warning" latches which, when unengaged, remain raised above the seatback. Child restraint anchorage points are built into the rear seatback and neatly located inside by flush-fitting covers. It is an ideal location, minimising intrusion into the cargo area.
