2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Bought mine during the President's Day sale at $17400 after the $500 rebate with the Pkg #2 & the 6-CD system. Ample rear seat space. I'm 5'11". When I sit in the back, at least 2" b/w my knees and the bk of the front seat. The ride comfort is sacrificed by the sports tuned suspension for better cornering. I was able to keep up with my friend's Mustang at a sharp turning exit ramp while the other cars just gradually became smaller on my rear-view mirror. I expected more from the premium 6-speaker stereo though. The old 4-speaker stereo in my '03 Camry sounds a lot better. You will love the versalite cargo space, trust me! Other cool features incld. 110V outlet, tire pressure monitor.
Flat folding seats creates a lot of possibilities. Dash board design is cool. Exterior with the spoilers make it looked like a hot performer.
More power and make the 17-in wheels available again for the XR trim. Although the bigger wheel option is available but Toyota USA doesn't seemed to build it!
