Matrix XRS
By Ron Hill on
Vehicle
2005 Toyota Matrix XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
Review
The Matrix XRS is a thrill to drive. It red lines as 8200 rpm with a six speed manual trans. It will not fit into one category well, but does well in many; wagon, sport-wagon, mini SUV, pocket rocket sport car, midget mini van, or many other. With the more powerful engine with Yamaha heads, I still get 30 mpg no matter how hard I run it. The VVTI kicks in at about 6500 rpm and feels like a dirt bike's power band, really puts you back in the seat. A definate 10 on the fun to drive scale. A sport car with unlimited trunk space.
Favorite Features
Engine really performs in the XRS pack.
Suggested Improvements
Turbo or supercharger
