Toyota MR2 Spyder Overview
The Toyota MR2 Spyder is a mid-engine sports car that was produced by Toyota from 2000 to 2007. It was only available in the United States and Canada. The MR2 Spyder was powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 138 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. It was available with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions. The MR2 Spyder was known for its handling and its affordability. It was also known for its convertible top, which could be stowed away in a few seconds.
The MR2 Spyder received praise for its handling and driving dynamics but faced competition from other roadsters in its segment, like the Mazda MX-5 Miata. Some critics felt it was underpowered compared to potential competitors. Its sales were modest, and in the mid-2000s, Toyota decided not to continue with a successor, marking the end of the MR2 lineup.
