2007 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
We bought the XR model with full options almost 3 years ago. We wanted ABS & side airbags, which is not sold in LA area, so we special ordered & waited 3 months - SOOO worth it! I'm short and love that I can easily see the road without being squished against the steering wheel. My husband is 6'+ and he fits comfortably too. Back seats are very comfortable for adults, our passengers comment all the time. Great gas mileage. Best feature is cargo options, hands down. The power/acceleration could be better - but I'm not a race car driver, and this car is more than adequate. Our color is "phantom gray", which we LOVE. This will be our family car for many years to come.
Excellent cargo options, comfortable seating - especially for shorter driver. Great gas mileage.
Improve acceleration/sporty handling. Nix coin receptacles
