It does, without a doubt, complete all those objectives, otherwise to the degree that cars, SUVs, and also portable sedans achieve their respective goals.

We found the Matrix provides alert velocity, especially around community. It edges well yet provides a smooth, comfortable flight. Matrix is functional, with a huge cargo location that can be expanded by folding down the back seats. And also it's absolutely trendy.

While the high-performance XRS version has drawn some attention with its high-revving 180-horsepower engine, we liked the 130-horsepower designs for their more relaxed, extra pleasurable disposition.

A bigger range of optional tools is offered for the XR too. Extra Value Package 1 ($ 270) includes cruise ship control, haze lights, and also front and also rear spoilers.

WALKAROUND

Toyota Matrix is based upon the very same platform as the Toyota Corolla, although it looks significantly various. The Matrix also shares much alike with the Pontiac Vibe. GM and also Toyota created the lorries collectively, saving money for both firms and also allowing each to use the cars at an economical rate. Matrix and also Ambiance do not look alike, nevertheless, as their designing was created independently by Toyota and also Pontiac.

The Matrix is 3 inches taller but 8 inches much shorter in length than a Toyota Corolla. It makes use of the same wheelbase but a wider track. These dimensions offer the Matrix an one-of-a-kind stance. It advises us somewhat of the Ford Emphasis hatchback, which is slightly smaller sized. It is additionally similar in dimension to the Chrysler PT Cruiser, although the Matrix has a little less interior storage space capability due to its reduced roofline.

As well as it's generally the roofline that draws the eye. In a reverse wedge shape, the roofing system slopes down at the back while the belt line along the reduced edge of the side home windows slopes up, developing a streamlined wedge form to the windows.

The tailgate opens up equally as in an SUV or minivan, as well as the frameless window can be opened separately for fast gain access to.

The front of the auto has a deliberate looking nose with a relatively high hood line highlighted by a big grille. Engine air conditioning is accomplished through a large aperture under the front bumper which showcases two tiny foglights.

A broad track, in addition to charitable tires fill the wheel wells nicely, helping offer the Matrix a hostile appearance. All in all it's a vehicle that looks significant despite its reasonably tiny dimension.

INSIDE

Sitting in a Toyota Matrix is rather like sitting in an SUV, with upright seating as well as a commanding view of the road in advance.

The chauffeur will discover that the cockpit differs that of various other Toyota cars and trucks. Four vessels in front of the steering wheel house deeply set determines. The assesses radiance red whatsoever times, even during the daytime, as insufficient ambient light reaches them. Chrome rims emphasize each vessel as well as fake cleaned aluminum trim is used to border turn on the control panel and door panels.

The combined radio as well as CD player rests directly to the right of the tool husks, while the heating and ventilation controls are right away below. If the radio buttons as well as the basic un-Toyota appearance of the trim seems acquainted that's due to the fact that the interior is almost identical to the Pontiac Vibe, even down to the American Delco radio.

The shifter is additionally right there, simply a couple of inches from the steering wheel. It's easily located more than a foot off the floor in a placement that's come to be trendy in high-performance rally automobiles along with the Lexus RX, a high-end SUV.

There's 15 cubic feet of freight room behind the back seats. The rear seat is split 60/40 and pressing a switch flips the seat down quickly to offer a completely level flooring with the ability of holding 53 cubic feet of freight. The cargo flooring is completed in a hard ribbed plastic created to provide very easy cleanup. An XR 4WD model we drove featured a carpet freight mat ($ 56) that did a much better task of maintaining freight from gliding about, nonetheless. The freight flooring features four ports which contain movable hooks that can be made use of to restrain items. There are numerous other tie-downs positioned along the sides. Storage compartments and cargo webs provide proprietors with maximum utility. All this makes the inside as flexible as any station wagon and also much better compared to a lot of SUVs. Even the front guest seat can be folded down to provide one more flat surface for storage space, albeit at a higher degree compared to the rest of the floor.

With its high roofline, the Matrix offers plenty of clearance for high drivers and also guests. Much shorter guests sitting in the back seats could discover the sight somewhat claustrophobic because of the tiny side windows.

One trendy attribute is the available 115-volt power electrical outlet situated in the front dashboard along with a routine 12-volt electrical outlet. It's a low-power A/C plug appropriate for powering a laptop, yet it isn't capable of running power devices. (Toyota is dealing with that, nevertheless.).
