Car reviews - Toyota - Echo - 5-dr hatch
1 Feb 2001
ROTARY temperature dials are stylishly integrated into the centre fascia and easy to use. Large, ergonomically friendly buttons are used for air-conditioning and rear demist switches. The purity of design and attentiveness to the driver's needs forged by the centre instrument display doesn't extend to the low-mounted and fiddly stereo controls, which vary in their degree of difficulty depending on the model. Power door locks, power mirrors, power steering, power windows with driver's auto down ... all models must have items such as these as optional extras. When specified, the power mirror switches are located within easy reach and view of the driver, on the dash to the right of the steering wheel. Optional power window switches are located on the doors.
