The Toyota Sprinter Carib 4WD family lasted a total of 20 years. For the first time, a station wagon with this name (AL25 body) appeared in 1982 – the car was built on the basis of the second generation Toyota Tercel. Outwardly, it differed not only in more protected bumpers and sills, but also in the luggage part of the body with side windows of a “vertical” arrangement. Moreover, in the previous concept Toyota RV-5 (Recreation Vehicle), these windows were made in the form of foppish gull-wing doors, but such excesses did not go into mass production. The carburetor engine with a volume of 1.5 liters (86 or 90 hp) was located longitudinally, the car had a permanent drive to the front axle, and the all-wheel drive was forcibly connected, using a rear continuous axle.
