2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
When I went shopping for a new car, upgrading from a tiny 95 Geo Metro LSi hatchback to the Toyota Matrix was like going from a studio apartment to a 4 bedroom home. I love everything about my sporty red Matrix, even though I had to wait 2 months for the color, it was well worth it. At 5'10" tall, I am very comfortable in both the front and back, though my 6'4" husband prefers the front, he says he could handle an hour long trip sitting in the back. Recently we moved and I was able to pack my car with 5 large rubermaid totes and some bags and still see out the rear window! I feel like the space never ends -- it is deceiving for such a sporty looking car. With tinted windows, it is hot!
