2001 Toyota ECHO Overview

The Toyota ECHO saw very few changes for 2001. Driver and passenger-side airbags were an option and a new color choice was available, but other than that, the 2001 ECHO saw very few changes.

The 2001 Toyota ECHO came in two body styles, a two door and a four door. Both shared a 108-horsepower 1.5-liter engine. It came standard with a five-speed manual transmission, and a four-speed automatic was an available option. Fuel economy was excellent, about 31/38 mpg.

Drivers of the 2001 Toyota ECHO either love it or hate it. The ECHO fans love its reliability, value, gas mileage, and low price. They do not miss the frills and features that might come with a more expensive car, and some even like the way the car looks. The naysayers complain that the interior feels cheap, the car is noisy and unstable at freeway speeds, and that it is hard to find models with a lot of options. Some also claim that the car is very unattractive.
