2005 Toyota Matrix XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
This car give you everything from good fuel economy, good space for cargo, great style, very reliable, fun to drive with the six speed manual and it is quick when its RPMs are in the 8,000 range. Good car over all and would buy another one with no hesitation.
The cars engine RPM redline at 8,200! But at the same time gets on average 25-28 mpg.
A little more torque for the low end and getting up and going.
