In Toyota they are burning. In addition to what they have presented during 2020, now 2021 arrives with a model like the GR 86 that will be presented this year. Now thanks to Carscoops we have known that Toyota has renewed the registration of the Celica name, something that intrigues us and we like in equal parts.
According to the aforementioned medium, there are two possibilities on the registration of this name.
The first option, and the most likely, is that Toyota has ensured its rights to retain the Celica name. Although originally it was speculated with the fact that the Japanese brand would revive the Celica as a new sports car, it seems that this is not finally going to happen, or at least, as we expected -aspect that leads us to the second option- .
The second option is that the Celica appellation ends as the Eclipse appellation in Mistubishi, which has been resurrecting the name and giving it to a crossover cut model that could compete with models with four-wheel drive and perhaps, recall the rally past of the model and the brand.
We are more inclined to the fact that the brand is protecting the denomination for a few more years, however, it is always nice to dream, right?
