2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon AWD (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Searched far and wide for a vehicle that I could manage back and forth comfortably to my professional job. Driving included highway and stop-go city traffic. My husband and I tested several vehicles to learn about interior, outward view all around safety and its road manners. The Matrix far exceeded all competing manufacturers. Toyota - always moving forward.
Bolstered back and side grips on front seat. Firmness feels sportscar-like. Front headlights in both normal and highbeam mode pierce through the night. Excellent Toyota engineering - when ignition is turned on, all doors lock automatically or open when ignition is shut off. Impeccably assembled.
Only one - could use larger arm rest bolsters on both driver and front passenger sides.
