The Toyota Curren was a Japanese automobile built by the Toyota Motor Corporation. It was based on the Toyota T200 chasis. It shared the same interior and rear end design as the 1994-1998 Toyota Celica Coupé. Instead of having four round headlights like the Celica, it had a fixed headlight design resembling that of the 1992-1996 Toyota Scepter.
