2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
So far I love this car. I downsized from a full size truck and was not sure if I would like it due to the size difference. But the money saved in gas says it all. This car is fun to drive. Even with a 1.8 under the hood it has a quick start. There is room for a family of 4 to fit. My son is 6 foot 2 inches and still has leg room when sitting behind me. Car has great cargo room. I love the fact the rear glass opens separately from the hatchback door if you need to haul something over 8 feet in length. I have only had this car for a week so I will be doing a follow up review in a few months.
Gas mileage, folding seats, sporty look.
Please add a telescoping steering wheel, this would be great for tall drivers. Sun visors need to be a little longer, they don't provide good protection from the sun. Seat material, it looks a little cheap, so I will be adding seat covers.
