The coupe came with a fully functioned dashboard that manipulates power windows, central locking, fog lamps, high-mounted stop lamp, and AM/FM stereo sound. Steering wheel, gearshift knob, and sound system are all upgraded with the 1994 facelift.
4. Operational Excellence
European Toyota MR2s are exclusively installed with Toyota’s 4A-GE engine, which has already been used in the AE86 Corolla – the one that inspired today’s GT86 coupe. MR2 engine displaced 1587cc and was fitted with Denso electronic port fuel injection. Toyota’s T-VIS variable intake system was also fitted and that really was advanced technology on a small and affordable sports car. Power outputs varied market to market, but UK-spec cars produced up to 122bhp. Even a five-speed gearbox was sexy with sports cars such as the Triumph Spitfire. MGB still warm in their graves.
Maintenance is pretty straightforward.
5. Performance And Driving Experience
Follow the Toyota service schedule and the Toyota MR2 will give you little trouble. Stray away from the recommendations and you risk problems. Regular changes of the engine coolant is recommended, but be careful to bleed the system properly. Airlocks in the system caused by bleeding the system incorrectly will almost certainly lead to engine damage and overheating.
The cam-timing belt needs to be changed every 100,000 km or five years. But the engine is a free-spinning design. While a broken belt can leave you stranded by the roadside, the engine won’t be internally damaged.
The clutch is relatively heavy-footed. Clutch life can also be shortened if the car is driven carelessly. Generally it’s possible to drive for 100,000 km before replacing the clutch, but hard driving can cut that to about 80,000 km. The gearbox is generally decent, but there are reports of notchy gear shifts. Using higher-grade oil in the gearbox is the most common fix.
Tyre wear can be another problem. In details, front tyres tend to wear the inside edges more rapidly than the outside; the rears wear more rapidly on the outer edges than the inner.
