When it was launched, the Toyota MR2 came with fabric seat that slide fore and aft and have angle adjustment for the back rest. The seat backs also tilt forward to allow access to the fold-out covers that give access to the storage bin that runs the width of the car and is the main luggage compartment. There is another small storage area under the front bonnet, but it's too small to be of any real use for carrying luggage. The main luggage compartment is awkward to access but it's bigger than you might think. Just don't expect to fit a set of golf clubs in there.
Electric windows, a CD stereo, aluminium pedals and silver-faced instruments are all standard, as are driver and passenger airbags. A CD autochanger was an optional extra. Air conditioning was an option from new, along with black or red leather upholstery in place of the black or red fabric seats. Heated seats were an option for the last two years of MR2 production.
Aside from some rattles that most MR2 seem to suffer from, the cabin is very well made and durable. All of the electrics should work as intended, so any car where the windows or stereo don't work has possibly been badly repaired in the past.
The 2003 facelifted models have chrome detailing on the air vents, heater controls and door handles, as well as more supportive seats. These cars also sport a redesigned typeface for the dials and controls, as well as a Toyota branded head unit in place of the original's Sony CD stereo.
"There's practically no luggage space. If you can live with that, it's a brilliant daily driver which can do the weekend fun thing too."
