2009 Toyota Matrix XRS 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I love my 09 Matrix. My tall kids are comfortable in the back. I think it is the best looking car for this class. However, Toyota skimps on little luxuries. If this car were made by Lexus under a different name, I would buy 3. This car needs more comfortable seats. As usual, it is bare bones. I don't feel I paid bare bones price though. When you hit a curb or something, holy cow. The whole car gets a jolt.
Styling, AWD, roominess.
More comfortable seats, more luxuries. Also MORE COLOR CHOICES.
