Toyota MR2


What`s it like to drive: "A cracking little sports car. Dubbed the Japanese Lotus Elise by many, compliments don`t come any higher and it is true. I could get technical and expound on the merits on polar moments of inertia benefits that accrue from a mid engine layout but the bottom line is that the optimum sports car layout remains mid engined/rear wheel drive and it is this more than anything which makes the MR2 such a beautiful compact car to drive. Pin sharp steering, flick switch gear change and a great 1.8 Vvti engine deliver in spades. Top down on a winding country road it really does take some beating".
