2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I've owned my Matrix for about 13 months now. I have to say that Iím constantly reminded of how good of a decision it was to buy this car! I traded down from a 4runner, and I have to say that I don't miss the cargo space. The cargo space provided in this matrix is unreal. The driving performance is good, the interior is good, and the fuel economy is good. Lets be honest if you're looking at this car itís to be economical, and you can't expect top of the line performance for the price. But for versatility, there aren't many out there that can't beat this. I definitely recommend this for anyone trading down from a SUV. Handling is firm and responsive, and fun to drive.
Cargo space, fuel economy, fun to drive, good handling.
Better cup holders (one is smaller than the other).
