Echo Hatchback Imported from Canada
By Locke on
Vehicle2004 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewWe purchased our Echo 5 door hatchback
from a dealer in Canada, and imported
it to the U.S. Call your nearest
Toyota dealer across the border for
the "how to do this" details. The
warranty is valid in the U.S. The
Hatchback is NOT a Scion, and is
really not an Echo. It is a European
designed car (called the Yaris) that
in Europe typically has a smaller
engine. For import to Canada they put
in the Echo engine. The performance is
fabulous. 40MPG all the time in mixed
driving. Seats 4 adults in comfort.
It's 2 inches longer than a Mini, and
has plenty of room in the trunk for
carry-on suitcases or grocery bags.
Seats fold down for bigger things.
Best FeaturesStyling is uniquely European and very classy. Not at all like the Echo sedan. Great mileage. Incredible roominess. More legroom in rear seat than our Subaru Impreza. Very zippy and fun to drive.
Worst FeaturesEuropean models have option of power mirrors and windows. I don't care really.
