Just Buy One. — Not a great shopping car, but handles in a fabulous fashion & gets more looks than ever. People seem drawn towards it & seem to realise it's got a lus amadrive layout without it turning a wheel. Plus many have forgotten the MR2 & think it more exotic than it is when the engine erupts from the rear...Plus amazing durability (with care) & you have a stunning mini Ferrari!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, speed, mojo!

Cons: Boot space

1991 Toyota MR2 2 Dr STD Coupe Review
says:
The MR2 in question here is my own which is equipped with a 3-liter V6. Because the MR2 is lighter than the Z32, it is quicker off the line and easier to manage through turns, despite having less power and McPherson strut suspension. I love that the engine is from a Camry because parts are relatively cheap and working on it is very easy. Plenty of room in the engine bay for activities. Through twisty roads, you have to be careful when driving an MR2; without proper experience with a mid-engine short-wheelbase vehicle, things can very badly very quick. And thats something I like a lot about this car; you have to be familiar with the car and its characteristics very well before taking it to its limits. Not just anybody can get behind the wheel of an MR2 and hit some back roads without spinning out a few times. The most important thing to remember is to never lift off the throttle during a turn. If the back end starts to come out, either hold the throttle where it is or give it a little more if you think you can control the slide but DO NOT countersteer excessively. You have to learn to control the angle of the car with the throttle and not just the steering wheel.

Power Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback better.
"The 3VZFE is rated at about 185hp and 198lbft vs the VG30DE 222hp and 198lbft. But the MR2 is a little over 300lbs lighter so, comparing their power-to-weight ratios, they are pretty evenly matched"
Handling Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback worse.
"The MR2 weighs much less and has a shorter wheelbase which is great for tight turns and agility."
Handling Ranked 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2 Dr STD Convertible better.
"Much lighter and slightly longer wheelbase."
Looks/Style Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback worse.
"Honestly, these are probably my two favorite 90s japanese cars when it comes to aesthetics. The MR2 is small, has flying buttresses, a uniquely curved rear window... The Z32 has the iconic sports-car-esque long hood and short rear look with a very menacing front end that I really popped out to me when one was driving behind me the other day. But the MR2 has pop-ups! Nothing beats pop ups, even if they seriously hinder aerodynamic drag when up."
Front Seats Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback worse.
"I like that the Z32 driver seat has more adjustability, but I dont like that its all done via knobs.... even the angle of the back rest. I get that it allows for a more precise adjustment but I think thats a little unnecessary."
Back Seats Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback worse.
"Neither of them have back seats, but the MR2 has nifty storage compartments behind seats as well as room for backpacks or groceries."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback worse.
"I like the large singular trunk space the Z32 has, but the MR2 seems to have more cubic footage and more places to store things. In addition to being a mid-engine car with a decently sized trunk, there are small compartments behind the seats, a large center console against the rear firewall between the seats, room above the storage consoles behind the seats, and given you remove the plastic surrounding the spare wheel, there is room in the frunk (front trunk) for some tools."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2 Dr STD Convertible worse.
"The mk2 has much more storage capacity than the Spyder; the Spyder only has one compartment behind the seats that spans the width of the car while the mk2 has a trunk, frunk, and more room behind the seats."
Family Car Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback better.
"It isnt. Neither of them are good family cars. Theyre both old 2-seater japanese sports cars. Nothing about that says family. But the 300zx seems to have less road noise in the cabin so I guess thats good?"
Value Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback worse.
"Easy to work on, cheap parts readily available, starting to appreciate in value. Z32s are getting harder to find in good condition at a decent price."
Would Buy Ranked 1991 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Hatchback worse.
"Because mid-engine. I wanted the challenge of learning how to handle a mid-engine car without having to buy a Ferrari (the Pontiac Fiero doesnt count because its junk). I wanted Toyota Camry reliability with Lotus Elise handling; the MR2 was the clear answer."
