2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon AWD (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I had started out looking for a more fuel efficient SUV. I had never even heard of the Toyota Matrix. Went to the dealership to look at a Rav4. I found that the Matrix had more cargo space than the 2005 Rav4 I was looking at ... and was a more comfortable driving experience than the 2006 Rav4 that I was looking at. I am totally enjoying zipping around in this car. It feels solid and tight. More so than my old SUV. It sits higher than a sedan. I found a surprising fuel efficient option. Love it.
Comfortable seats. Great cargo space. Front passenger seat folds down and converts to a desk top. A/C plug for your laptop. Sunroof.
An iPod compatible stereo system should be an option. The cup holders are ridiculous. They only fit the smaller cup size.
