When I drive my Echo, I forget that it is a 1.5 liter VVT-i and not a sports car. I was surprised when I test drove it, as I was expecting the response to compare to a Ford Tempo. The car has more interior room than my brothers 2008 Aveo, and my other brothers 2008 Focus! It is not the fastest car on the block, but it sure is fun to drive! I own the manual, so I wouldn't even want to ever drive an auto again!
45 hwy MPG! 33 city! averages about 37! The room, the response, and the handling!
Body style could have been more suited to both sexes, not just female! Mine is red, and reminds me of a cherry. NOT GOOD.
