2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


This car is a LOT of fun to drive. The ride is a little more stiff than the Camry and it's a little louder. The guages are extremely easy to see even in direct sunlight and are very well thought out. All of the controls are within easy reach and make sense where they are placed. The driver's seat has a height adjustment so my wife (on the short side) can see out just as well as I can when she lifts it up. Our 3 kids fit in the back without any problems and my 10 year old still has plenty of leg room and room to grow even when I have the seat as far back as I need it. The seats folding and creating a flat loading space is great, durable and easy to clean.

Best Features

Gas mileage (avg. 30 so far). Flat-folding rear seats. Sporty look and feel.

Worst Features

Make 4-wheel disc brakes and option for the XR too, not just the XRS.
