What about the Echo? No need, as it doesn't have one...
But wait! Not so fast!It has the same type of tray for a filter as the others. It sits right behind the glove compartment and above the blower motor (see photo in the 'interior' section of http://www.echofans.net ).
There is no filter in the tray, but that can be fixed easily. I simply took a pleated furnace filter and cut it down to size. I used one that had wire reinforcement which keeps the pleating from moving and slid it right in there. That gave a filter similar to the one in the Avalon (my father has an Avalon, and I looked at the filter).
As long as the filter tray is already there, why not put something in it? Otherwise, it's just sucking in outside air that is full of all kinds of crud (my father's Avalon filter was dirty as heck!).
My Echo is nice and new and clean, and hopefully this little trick will help keep it that way.
