2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
After 1,000 miles, I have no regrets. Bought for its gas mileage and versatile interior which are even better than I expected. Ave. 29 mpg local and 37 mpg highway. Driver's seat is high, but I'm short so its fine. Added side air bags, stability and traction control, ABS, window tint and leather seats. The versatile interior is great whether carrying groceries or lumber. A more powerful engine would be nice, but I'll take the mpg. A comfortable car mostly driven locally. I have no doubt this was an excellent purchase.
Visibility, easy to read dash, auto. driving lights, folding seat versatility for carrying large items
electric front seats would be a nice option for older buyers; cargo mat needs to be standard-items sliding on the vinyl can be irritating and noisy.
