The Toyota Celica had a 36 year run from 1970 to 2006 and has become a byword for reliability and performance. Grey imports only really started to bring over the Mk IV version (1985 to 1989) from Japan although few of these cars exist today. The car has kept a very loyal following to this day, especially the earlier models.
Toyota Celica MK 5
It was in 1989 with the introduction of the Mk V version that the Celica started to make a large presence on the UK roads. The cars were supplied new in the UK but a large number were also imported from Japan as grey imports. This was the more rounded body shape and was far more of a drivers car. The Celica GT4 was the car to have and with a power output of up the 230bhp meant it had the performance to match. We insure many Celicas under our Toyota insurance schemes and a large amount are based around the GT4 or standard cars that have been modified to some extent.
Toyota Celica MK 6
The Mk VI car which appeared in 1989 was much more along the lines of the Toyota Supra shape, especially the front end. The rally racing derived GT4 now produced 250bhp and was firmly in the marketplace of the Impreza and Lancer Evo. A large number of Celica GTs have been modified and we are very happy to quote for these. Our Celica insurance schemes take these modifications into account and will not necessarily mean an increase to the premium. Unlike many cars of this era, the Celica has proved to be an extremely reliable machine as is the trademark of Toyota.
Toyota Celica MK 7
1999 saw a completely new body shape in the form of the MK VII version. This new model was a departure from the previous hardcore models and was much more of an everyday usable car. The VVTi and GT models both came with 1.8 litre engines which produced between 140 and 190bhp. Fuel mileage and reliability were again excellent, and as expected, many exist in great condition today.
We at Keith Michaels are especially well known for our Japanese Import car insurance and we are keen to cover the earlier models of the Toyota Celica using these schemes.

Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
