"A 4-door Toyota hardtop that was a great hit in the specialty car genre."
In September 1989, Toyota introduced the 2nd-generation Carina ED, a pillarless hard top 4-door. The "ED" stands for, "Exciting and Dressy," and the car's key selling point was its highly attractive styling. Its theme of "...looks of a specialty car, with four doors..." established by the previous model was well maintained.
Its chassis was based on the king of the specialty cars, the 5th generation Celica, and had a length of 176.5 inches, width of 66.5 inches, and a height of only 51.7 inches. It was probably the flattest 4 door in the world at the time.
Utilizing a small 3-box style cabin with no center pillar, the body was more rounded compared to the first generation model and was given a slightly trapezoidal form, adding to its charm. The interior is very high quality, and reminds the viewer that Japan was in an economic boom at the time.
Basic components are shared with the Celica. It is offered in DOHC inline-4 cylinder engines, with a 2.0-litre sports twin cam version producing 165PS, a 2.0-litre high-mecha (a twin cam format where only one cam is driven by the timing belt) twin cam version producing 123 BHP, and a 1.8-litre high-mecha twin cam version producing 104 BHP. The gearbox was either a 5-speed MT or an electronically controlled 4-speed AT. The suspension utilizes struts for all 4 wheels as in the first generation, but starting from this model the worlds first dual mode 4WS which allows steering of the rear wheels was also added as an option.
The Carina ED was originally the perfect car for, "a son who has just received his license and wants a specialty car, but whose parents want a four-door." In reality the rear seats far from spacious, but the car was very popular from two generations of both the parents and children. With its pillarless 4 door hardtop design, this is a model that has secured its place in Japan's automotive history.
