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.
