A great little car.

2005 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


The car gets great mileage and has decent power to boot. It's easy to park, but has plenty of passenger and cargo room. Handling and ride are acceptable. Exterior styling is pretty good, but could be better. Interior looks kind of cheap. I like the center-mounted instrument cluster because the steering wheel doesn't get in the way of the gauges. It's solidly built and won't squeak or rattle. The cd stereo is great. The Scion xA and xB are based on the same platform, but have much less cargo room with the rear seats upright. The echo makes more sense if you need to carry around four people and cargo.

Best Features

Mileage! 35/42 is about 10mpg better than most competitors, yet it still manages an 8.4 second 0-60. The stereo is excellent. It won't blow out the windows, but it's pretty loud with excellent sound clarity and fidelity. Super-fun to drive in parking lots-and tons of cargo room!

Worst Features

The pricing/packages. The Scion xA and xB are priced competitively and yet come standard with power steering, a/c, power locks and windows, keyless entry, abs, stability control, 15" wheels, and color-keyed body cladding. All of these are options on the echo, and can greatly increase
