A big step up.

2009 Toyota Matrix S 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Review
I traded my 2007 Yaris HB in on the Matrix. As a city car, the Yaris was great, but as a roadmaster, not so good. I test drove a Rabbit, which felt small compared to the Matrix, which seems bulk. The car has a heavy feel and is very comfortable on long drives. I am getting 29.5 mpg highway and 20 mpg city - exactly as advertised. The Matrix offers a lot of value for the money and I am pleased with my purchase. Compared to the Yaris, this car feels very solid and safe.
Favorite Features
The AWD system, trunk tie-downs, tilt/telescopic wheel, ABS, traction control, side airbags. The very smooth 2.4L engine.
Suggested Improvements
At this price point alloy wheels should be standard. The car has several blind spots in the rear and in the rear, which I didn't notice during the test drive.
