2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


All right, I'll get straight to the point: This car in my opinion has by far the best value for the buck! Okay, so it's only a 1.8 engine, but it has well enough power to accelerate on the freeway, and once we all reach "65mph" (yea, I mean 75-80-85mph) it's all the same no matter what vehicle you drive right?. On the other hand, the Matrix XR has features that even a BMW doesn't. It's got a power outlet (115V) that turned out to be so useful, it's versatilty is outstanding. Right front seat can become a table, hard plastic surface on the back of the rear seats can turn the Matrix to a mini SUV, the fuel consumption is great (29mpg combining city and freeway driving), handling is outstanding!

Best Features

Versatility, handling, features, fuel economy, overall looks

Worst Features

Missing radio controls on the wheel, The Radio-CD on the console could have a better display (like in the Honda Accord) but that's really a low priority, especially when comparing to the other stuff you get
