Every Magic Moment is Best With a Little Music...
2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder 3-in-1 Audio SystemA sun-drenched day. The top down and that feeling of being one with nature and the road. What could be better than a moment like this? How about such a moment that also includes your customer's favorite sounds - no matter how they like to hear them?

MR2 Spyder comes equipped with the 3-in-1 audio system. It's an electronic tuner, cassette deck and CD player all-in-one. And each listening option is easily accessible because it's right at the driver's finger tips. Four speakers -- including two tweeters -- are strategically placed to provide superb playback capabilities. Driving just doesn't get better than this.

The Wind In The Hair With Fewer Tangles...
The open-top driving experience has traditionally required one post-arrival ritual: combing out wind-tosseled hair. Toyota engineers have labored to reduce this phenomenon by refining the practice of air-flow management.

Surprisingly, the key to reducing hair-do destruction is not simply to block air flow over and around the cabin, but to reduce the amount of air that "doubles back" into the passenger compartment. To do this, the engineers have equipped MR2 Spyder with a specially designed air deflector. It is the smallest one possible to block the greatest amount of back flow. It is also transparent so it doesn't block the driver's rearward vision.

Air management technology has also been employed to enhance MR2 Spyder's road manners. "Spats" have been positioned ahead of each front tire. These serve to channel air-flow around and outside of the tires. This creates a negative pressure zone underneath the chassis. The result? Naturally occurring downforces enhance MR2 Spyder's road hugging abilities. The term "sticks like glue" seems more than appropriate.

2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder Interior Sport-Type Bucket Seats

The Sport seats have side bolsters designed to hold the occupants firmly, yet comfortably, in place during all types of driving. They are upholstered in a combination of mesh and glossy materials to create an open, airy feel, and are offered in three choices of color to match the exterior color of the MR2 Spyder.

2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder Side Air IntakeStyling
Convention-rattling design rooted in sports car heritage...

The look of the all-new MR2 Spyder is accentuated by a rising wedge shape and door sections with generous character lines. Side air intakes give a strong visual identity of the sports car driving experience. The sum is a car that is both highly sporty and exceptionally distinctive.
2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder Headlamp
The front is characterized by large halogen headlamps with integral turn signals and a low-mounted air intake. The look is aggressive and clean, suggesting both high performance and aerodynamic efficiency.
2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder Taillamp
The theme of the large headlamps is repeated with exceptionally large taillamps, which not only make a bold visual statement but also contribute to safety by making the MR2 Spyder more visible to other drivers. The center high-mounted stop lamp is built into the engine hood, emphasizing the sporty look.
2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder Aluminum Alloy Wheel
The wheels are made of aluminum alloy, of an aggressive, 5-spoke design, that emphasizes the MR2 Spyder's sports car appeal.

The soft top is manually operated, for light weight, and features a two-division, linked operation. The link mechanism allows the top to be stored neatly and evenly, and prevents the upper face from reversing during folding. The rear window is made of tempered glass and includes a defogger, ensuring exceptional rearward vision and durability.
2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder Gauges
The interior features an innovative piped sectioning, with tubular-shaped areas that give a modern, clean and highly sporting look. This theme is carried from the instrument panel to the doors, resulting in a unified appearance to the complete interior. A knee support provides the driver with more stability, important during more enthusiastic driving.

To emphasize the MR2 Spyder's sportiness, the combination instrument panel places the tachometer in the center, for greatest visibility. The tachometer redline area is marked by dots. On the left is the speedometer, with a combination fuel gauge, coolant temperature gauge and warning light cluster on the right. The instrument faces are silver, another detail that contributes to the modern look of the instrument panel.

2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder Sport PedalsThe lightweight aluminum sport pedals are properly placed for optimum control, even during enthusiastic driving, while the driver-side footrest provides a comfortable resting spot for the driver's left foot during cruising. Holes in the surfaces of the pedals and footrest give a sporty image and racing-inspired style.
