2005 Toyota Matrix XR AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
After searching for about 6 months we finally decided to go with the Matrix. We test drove everything from a Mazda to a Pontiac and decided on the Matrix. With two children and two adults in it on a road trip it was excellent. Not a complaint about room or my side your side stuff. All of our friends and family couldn't believe for the money how many features we got.
To be quite honest it's all the room. I'm 6 ft and my wife is 5 ft.The kids are 5'-3" and 5 ft, lots of room in this little car.
Just a little more Hp wouldn't hurt. It take off a little slow but you can't have everything
