About Toyota Soluna

For the 1995 model year, Toyota introduced an all-new design with a stiffer body and better handling. For 1997, all North American market Tercels were available only in the CE trim level and incorporated many of the standard and optional items from previous base and DX models. The interior design pushed the dash further away, but brought the switches closer. As Toyota’s entry-level car, the Tercel was also available with the smaller, 1.3-litre, and petrol four-cylinder, and the engine which provided 66 hp (49.2 kW) at 4,200 rpm. In Thailand and Indonesia, a version of the Tercel with different front and rear fascias was sold as the Toyota Soluna.

The Soluna AL50 was powered by the 1.5-litre engine, and campaigned as the “Asian family car”. A facelifted Soluna appeared in Thailand in late 1999 and arrived in Indonesia in 2001. Based on the GLi, the Soluna S-Limited with body kits was offered for a short time. (source:wiki)
