Visit Toyota for more information on the Toyota MR2 Spyder.

One of the most exciting and nimble little cars from Toyota is the 2004 MR2 Spyder. This distinctive sports car has attractions encompassing style, financial and performance considerations, a rare combination. New technologies make the 2004 Toyota MR2 Spyder even more of a high performance auto.

This year the mid-engine MR2 Spyder receives exterior and interior design refinements and a six-speed sequential manual transmission (SMT) option, allowing drivers to enjoy racer like clutch free gear changes using shift paddles on the steering wheels. The MR2 is capable of 0-60 mph in slightly over seven seconds yet has low maintenance and fuel costs.

Available Models
The 2004 Toyota MR2 Spyder has two models, the base 2-door manual and the one same equipped with the SMT transmission feature, which also comes with cruise control.

Interior Features
The 2004 Toyota MR2 Spyder has a bountiful offering of standard features and few factory options. They have designed the package to be optimal as-is and don't expect you to need much. 42.2 inches of legroom and bolstered bucket seats make for pleasurable short drives and longer trips. The leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob add to the interiors sporty look.

A glass rear window with a defroster is part of the manually convertible soft-top, which folds away completely. A 3-in-1 AM/FM/cassette/CD audio system with four speakers, air conditioning, power windows, door locks and exterior mirrors, keyless entry and a security system with engine immobilizer are all highlights of the standard equipment package.

Exterior Features
The 2004 Toyota MR2 Spyder exterior has a bold look in front with a new bumper/ fascia and dual-bulb projector-style headlights. Fully integrated standard foglights add function and style to the front end. Other changes have been made to the back and sides. The side air intakes are now color-keyed instead of black while in the rear, the 2003 MR2 Spyder has new combination lamps with cylindrical turn signals and reversing lights that mimic the dual-bulb look of the headlights.

On top of the SMT, the Toyota MR2 Spyder has plenty to boast about in the performance department. The engine is taken from the much larger Celica GT and it pumps 138hp to the wheels for this little car at 6400 rpm. Meanwhile 125 lb-ft of torque and VVT-I (Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence) make for ample power throughout the engine range. This is a peppy, road-hugging racer.

Safety and Security
Dual front airbags and 4-wheel antilock disc brakes and side-door impact beams are standard equipment on the MR2. However, exquisite manoeuvrability, agility and the razor-sharp response should keep you out of trouble.
