The Toyota Paseo (known as the Cynos in Japan and other regions) was a sports styled compact car released in 1991 and was loosely based on the Toyota Tercel. It was available as a coupe and in later models as a convertible. Toyota stopped selling the car in the United States in 1997, however the car continued to be sold in Canada. Europe and Japan until 1999, before being replaced by the Echo in 2000. The Paseo, like the Tercel, shares a similar platform to the Toyota Starlet.

Several parts are interchangeable between the three.

Second generation

Toyota Paseo convertible (US)

The UK had three models in the Paseo range. ST, being the base Paseo, Si being the more advanced model, adding 14 inch alloy wheels, Sony CD Player, color-keyed boot spoiler with third brake light and anti-lock brakes. Then there was the Limited Edition, Galliano. The Galliano was based on the Paseo Si, having all the features and more.

The Paseo Galliano composed of a color-keyed chin spoiler (also optional extra to lower Paseo models), mud guards, Yellow (576) paintwork with aquamarine decals down the sides. Along with the sporty, slightly wider 15-inch alloy wheels with low-profile 195/50 tyres. The second gen Paseo’s colour codes are as follows: Sunburst Red. 3E5. Pure White.

040. Quicksilver (metallic). 1AO. Tropicana (metallic). 756. Azure (metallic). 8K9. Satin Black (metallic, Only available on the Si model). 205.

Note* Since 1996 Toyota have changed the names of the colours. If buying paint refer to paint code as that still remains the same.

Britain never saw the Paseo Convertible; only personally imported Convertibles reached the UK, and they are very hard to find for sale unless you can use an import site to import them from Japan. Toyota’s UK models only came with one engine, the 5E-FE which only produced 89 bhp (66 kW; 90 PS) in the UK spec. The 1497 cc 1.5 litre engine is fairly eager and pulls well, but the top speed, marked by Toyota, is 112 miles per hour (180 km/h).

Throughout the production of the Paseo, Japan named it the ‘Cynos’. In Japan, The Cynos had three varients. The Alpha, Beta and Juno. All of these models came with colour coded wing mirrors and a rear windscreen wiper – something thats sorely missed by non Japanese markets. and something that doesn’t really look the part on the shape of the car. On top of these features, the Cynos came with a range of different dials, interior apoulstry, steering wheels and engines.

The Juno came with a 1.3 4E-FE engine with a 4 speed automatic gearbox. The Alpha had the 1.5 5E-FE engine with a 5 speed manual gearbox and the Beta came with a 5E-FHE engine (commonly known in the Toyota Sera ), also with a 5 speed manual gearbox.
