ST/Base model trim kerb/curb weight

Postby CloudStrife » Thu Jul 11, 2019 2:04 am

Hi guys,

I have a good question for the top knowledge toyo masters out there.

I have been trying to hunt down the full curb weight (wet or dry) of a 180 series FWD celica, (known as the "ST" or "1.6 St-i) COUPE NOT HATCH.


I am getting very conflicting information, and can't seem to figure out why US weights are so much higher.

I get 2,500 lbs for an ST COUPE.

There is no way that motorized headlights and 5 lugs makes the car so heavy. My 1996 Corolla DX fully power optioned, and with OBD2/airbags, weighs 2,400.

On euro sites, the 1.6 ST-i COUPE (ST in states) is only 2,200 lbs kerb weight. This sounds more realistic for the tiny car, even minus bitch pillow, crash supports, and any other non US requirement, it cannot account for 300 lbs.


So long story short, does anyone have a stripped down(no power functions) ST COUPE (5spd preffered) that they can corner weigh or even stick on a truck scale?

I think US factory weights are not accounting for COUPEs, and are giving the weight of Sunroof hatchbacks.

I might just test drive a local ad to the truck stop LOL.

Thanks for any insight.

Look into this guys posts.

He swapped a v6, but if he went with the aluminum block its likely similar weight.

All 5th gen celicas are heavy. Lots of metal, and over built.

Thanks for the reply.

Hmm.. must be a lot of chassis bracing!

Great thread, but way to heavy for FF.

Still would like to see someone weigh a 1.6.

5th gens are beast! SW20s are pretty light in comparison.

My 1992 Celica sales brochure, for ST, says 2,646 lbs for the 5-speed manual, and 2,690 lbs for the 4-speed automatic.

I can't imagine any 5th gen being able to weigh only 2200lbs from factory. I know the turbo engine, AWD system, etc all add weight but that would make an ST185 weigh nearly as much as an AT180 plus half of another AT180.

Underscore, you are correct, that's because there weren't any. Don't know where CloudStrife is getting his information from. The view below is from a Euro site. Curb (kerb for Euro) says 2645.55 lbs (1200 kg), which is within 0.45 lbs of the US spec (US spec just rounded up to nearest pound, which is 2646 lbs).
