The Toyota Duet is a subcompact car manufactured and marketed by Toyota, a Japanese car manufacturer, for the Japanese market from 1998 to 2004. It was made to replace the Corolla II.

History of the Toyota Duet

The Toyota Duet is a compact car that was designed by Daihatsu, a subsidiary of Toyota, and released in 1998. It is almost identical to the Daihatsu Storia in terms of design and features, with the only differences being the name and emblem. The Duet is a 5-door hatchback with a 1L engine and front-wheel drive, and its body dimensions are 3,660x1,600x1,450 mm. Despite being similar in size and specs to the Toyota Vitz, it is slightly less spacious and comfortable. In spring 2003, Toyota introduced two new versions of the Duet with modified configurations. The 1.0V Limited and 1.0V Classic are both based on the 1.0V model and feature tinted rear windows, anti-reflective coating on the mirrors, air conditioning, a roof antenna, and two electronic keys. Only the 2WD version has a rear wiper. The 1.0V Limited includes additional features such as body-colored door handles and electric mirrors, improved seat and door upholstery, and a CD player with an integrated AM/FM tuner.


The price range for a used Toyota Duet varies based on the trim level you choose. Starting at $2,000 and going to $4,100 for the latest year the model was manufactured.
