2000 MR2 Spyder New Car Test Drive
The MR2 Spyder is Toyota's attempt to return to the lightweight, reasonably priced roots of the original sports car market. The MR2 Spyder represents a fun, comfortable roadster for a decent price.
The beauty of Toyota's strategy with the MR2 Spyder is apparent in its model lineup: one car, no options, for $23,098. Toyota calls this 'mono-spec,' which is perhaps a suspect word. Regardless, this single-model strategy makes the MR2 less costly to build and distribute. Customers need only choose colors. Dealers provide wheel locks and an unnecessary cover that can be used when the convertible top is folded.
