The four Alloy Wheels act as an image booster to a whole new level. Roof Rail can be installed for a tougher look as you wish. The Rail on the exterior can make it much more easier to carry further luggage including tents, skating board, surfer and much more... for picnic and party. The different sizes of luggage can easily fit with the outside design. The headlights and taillights are positioned in such angular form that makes foggy night viewing easier than ever. The front grille of Altezza bears the initial “L” badge, whereas the backside has a small extended trunk for much more luggage storage.

4. Operational & Safety Excellence

Three engine sizes are available for the Altezza:

  • The entry level “AS200” model uses a 2-litre six-cylinder engine and a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual.
  • The sporty “RS200” uses a high-performance special  2-litre four-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual.
  • The top AS300 “Gita” model comes with a 3-litre six-cylinder engine with a five-speed automatic.

The four-speed automatic transmission delivers smart shifts. It is very smooth too and can be shifted into a power mode. Traction control is aimed to reduce the chance of wheelspin. The brakes can perform well.

The engine is powerful enough to impress anyone.

Here is the Toyota Altezza engine options and transmission types so you can decide on a suitable car  for your need:

Engine Transmission

 2.0 L 3S-GE I4 (RS200)

 2.0 L 1G-FE I6 (AS200/IS 200)

 3.0 L 2JZ-GE I6 (AS300/IS 300)

Safety features include driver and anti-lock brakes, traction control and passenger airbags. Side airbags are optional, and it is easy to spot that a car has these, just look for “SRS” tags and plastic panels on the side of the front seats.

5. Performance And Driving Experience

The Altezza is famous for how well it can steer and handle roads. The steering wheel feels perfectly weighted and responsive. There is lots of grip and little body roll. While the ride is firm, it is still comfortable. It is so easy to recognize this is a fun car to drive.

Engine power is enough from a family/sport sedan and top reliability is guaranteed. Fuel economy is reasonable for what you get out of such a engine, because while all other efficient cars go through lots of tune ups, and more chance for mechanical things to go wrong out of your knowledge. Seating position is great, your back and leg would feel comfort even after long ride but not that much if you are tall. The Altezza can deliver lots of power when overtaking.

Visibility is nice to the side and forward, though the raised tail reduces rearward visibility. In case you need a reversing camera, you can buy a unit and fit it to your car by yourself from $50, or have a professional do it for $200.

A Prolific Investment

In conclusion, our collection of first-generation Altezza is completely feels like new, powerful, and much more affordable than any other choice for sports car. Toyota Altezza is an amazing car, but it's getting harder to find a decent one anywhere else due to boy racers trashing them and highly modifying them. If you consider buying Toyota Altezza, Car From Japan experts would highly recommend it, even though Toyota Altezza for sales is nearly 20 years old. And if your budget is strict, you should get a satisfactorily performing car in a heartbeat, from us, Car From Japan, right here right now!!!
