Matrix XRS
By Ron Hill on


2005 Toyota Matrix XRS Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


The Matrix XRS is a thrill to drive.
It red lines as 8200 rpm with a six
speed manual trans. It will not fit
into one category well, but does well
in many; wagon, sport-wagon, mini SUV,
pocket rocket sport car, midget mini
van, or many other. With the more
powerful engine with Yamaha heads, I
still get 30 mpg no matter how hard I
run it. The VVTI kicks in at about
6500 rpm and feels like a dirt bike's
power band, really puts you back in the
seat. A definate 10 on the fun to drive
scale. A sport car with unlimited trunk

Best Features
