This car is compact on the outside and large on the inside. I am 6' tall and the headroom is good, but still find the leg room cramped while driving with the seat all the way back.
This 4 door Echo takes up very little space in a single car garage.
The center mounted dash board gauges are a bit odd at first, but OK after a while.
This car strains a bit and makes some engine noise to go fast or pass, but it gets the job done when asked to do so. Cross winds tend to be an issue sometimes for road holding ability.
The trunk is roomy for a small car and the back seats fold down for more room.
The basic sound system speakers lack low end and high end. I know this is an entry level car, but I think it could have been a little bit better.
The seats are stiff and firm with a close knit fabric, perhaps a bit more longer lasting, but a bit short on comfort.
This car is good for low speed, around town or city driving. This car is small in some ways, but with the 15" wheels as an option, the driving height is about the same as a camry, this also makes entry and exit a breeze.
