Chose Matrix over Mazda 3 Hatchback

ReviewI spent a lot of time investigating and researching for my next vehicle to replace a 2001 Ford Escape. Had it down to the Matrix or the Mazda 3 Hatchback. I test drove the Mazda, it was nice although couldn't really tell that it had more power than the Matrix. Bought the Matrix because we had a 2004 Corolla that has been great and the price was over a $1000 less than Mazda. The Matrix has not disappointed. Plenty of power, even some wheelspin! Have been getting a consistent 29-30 mpg for a mix of city and highway travel. Ride is great, better than the Escape. Lots of little extras make this a super Corolla with fantastic hauling capacity.
Best FeaturesLove the fold flat 60/40 back seat and fold flat front passenger seat. Discovered the back window opens separately to the hatchback, very useful for quick easy access stuff stored in the back.
Worst FeaturesThinking real hard, can't think of any.
