2000 Toyota Echo Road Test
The way my husband was going on about the "radical new design" of the Toyota Echo, I expected something like the Jetson's space car meets Herby the Love Bug. When I saw it I knew what he was talking about. It isn't strange looking, but it's not your typical design either. He described it to me as 'cute'. Toyota says that the Echo puts the 'fun' back in function. I say it puts the fun back in funky. With its center-mounted instrumentation, its geometrically patterned seats, its unique combination rear lights, and its - well, funky, wedged profile, it is just plain fun.
