2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I only have 200 miles on my Matrix XR but I already love it. The seat are high which is great. I can drive next to the smaller SUVs and the seats are just as high as the person next to me but the car is smaller. The seats are amazingly comfortable in front... back seats too. I love my Matrix.
Driver seat sits high is height adjustable. Back window opens without having to open the whole hatch. Headlight reminder beeps so you don't accidentally leave lights on. Just breaking it in so I'm getting 30 mpg. Tires are lower profile & wide.
The only complaint so far is rear visibility. The back headrests & the smaller rear windows force me to get used to using my side mirrors. Hopefully I can get used to that.
