Toyota MR2 Overview
The Toyota MR2 is a two-seater sports car which was produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota. The three generations of the MR2 differed greatly and changed the look of the car totally. They were all very sporty looking while they were all designed with economy in mind. They are known for their great handling and being good fun to drive. There is not much room in the rear, but these cars are designed for their look rather than practicality. Let us know about your thoughts by writing a small review below.
Toyota MR2 History
The first generation (1984-89) Toyota MR2 was a break from the norm of practical and economical cars that Toyota was known for producing. These cars were extremely lightweight and handled very well. This was the most angular design of the MR2 cars and was designed with current fashion trends of the time. This car was seen as an innovative design and was well received in most markets.
The second generation (1989-99) changed the look of the MR2 greatly, and was seen to resemble the Ferrari 348 and F355, with its smoother curves. It was called the ‘poor mans Ferrari’. This car was slightly larger and heavier than its predecessor and there were several minor changes to this vehicle throughout its 10 years in production.
The third generation (1999-2007) Toyota MR2 was more of a roadster as Toyota aimed to reach the younger market, and took on a similar look to the Porsche Boxster. This was the last MR2 to be produced and it finally ceased production in 2007.
The first generation MR2 was available in 1.5 and 1.6L petrol engines. The second generation had 2.0 and 2.2L engines with the third generation version having a 1.8L petrol engine. The latest 1.8L engine was the most economical, offering up to 38mpg. How did your Toyota MR2 perform economically? Let us know.
