Description

The Toyota Starlet P80 was a B-Segment car launched in 1989, with a more rounded body style, mechanical upgrades and a more modern interior than its predecessor model.

The performance version, Toyota Starlet GT Turbo (P80), launched in 1990, was fitted with a turbocharged version of the 1.3 liter engine (4E-FTE ) that produced 135 hp (99 kw) of power and 157 Nm of torque, combined with a 5 speed manual gearbox. The car accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 8,2 seconds and could reach a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph). It weighted 890 kg and like the previous generation, it was equipped with the TEMS active suspension technology.

Visually the car was distinguished by sporty bumpers, hood scoop, GT badging, larger alloy wheels, rear spoiler and twin exhaust pipes. The Starlet P80 received minor facelifts in 1992 (full width talights) and in 1994 (four round headlights). Two limited edition versions of the GT turbo were produced: the GT Limited and the GT Advance, both featured small changes such as different steering wheels and gear shifter knobs, a rear strut bar, ABS (later versions only) and were distinguishable by their two tone paint scheme. These models also featured an optional LSD which was available with the C153 transaxle.

In 1995, the Starlet GT turbo (P80) was replaced the next generation Starlet Glanza V (P90).
