2002 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


The reviewer said the Echo suffers from cartoon-
like styling. I say that's the whole idea. My Echo is
like driving a cartoon. Never have I had a vehicle
absolutely *no* features--mine doesn't even have
power steering--that is so delightful. It's so
impressive, it's a joy to drive. Just bought it last
week with 16k miles. I [a designer] am quite
impressed with all the thought that went into
this car, at it's most stripped-down level, really
neat. The driving environment is wonderful, it's
plenty big inside, it floats down the road
effortlessly and with a smile. And the best thing:
with a basic, used car my expectations were low. So
I am overjoyed. Hope that helps.

Best Features

"driving environment" is really pleasant. With zero features the car is still pleasant. The interior is awash in plastic, but if you embrace it, you can start to "get" the idea of the car. Big trunk, many cubby holes. Great visibility

Worst Features

I really can't think of any.
