2000 Echo New Car Test Drive
No frills usually means bare bones. Sometimes it even means crude. With the new Toyota Echo, it means no frills. The interior is spartan, and accessories are limited.
The Echo may lack frills, but it doesn't lack sophistication. The Echo bears an awesome little engine that's clean and efficient. The quality suspension helps produce the ride of a much larger car, and anti-vibration tricks in the chassis make the car amazingly smooth at highway speeds.
Frills? We don't need no stinkin' frills.
Echo is available as two models: the $9,995 2-door and the $10,295 4-door. There is a five-speed, and there is an automatic ($800). Any questions?.
