The Echo only comes in 2 or 4 door sedan form in the US. In Japan and Europe, they sell a 2 and 4 door hatch version called the Yatiz that looks very similar to the Echo.

To help clarify for others passing through here, please note the minor change in the title. You'll now find the word "sedan" immediately following Toyota Echo. Hope this is helpful.

I'm the one that posted the original message about Echo vs. Lanos. I apologize for not putting the word "sedan" in my posting. If you want to see some pictures of the Yaris do a search on the Google search engine. I found many web sites with some really neat pictures. I wish we could get the same instrumentation on the Echo that the Yaris has. In some countries you can get an electronic display of the Tach and Speedo while in other countries you get analog versions of both. We can't get either here. I also read about a high performance version of the Echo possibly coming to America. Toyota was supposed to make a decision on this in January but as of now there has been no confirmation. I have now had my Daewoo Lanos Sport for a few months and I love it. If anyone is considering this car I'd be glad to fill them in on the many positive features of this car. I have no idea why Edmunds is so down on the Lanos. Don't believe everything you read. Go test drive one and you'll see what I mean.
