2009 Toyota Matrix S 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Purchased just this week, sorry I cannot tell how good the fuel efficiency is yet. Purchased the AWD due to northeast driving conditions and because it handles like a go-cart! Steel wheels offer better ride than 17" alloys. "road noise" mentioned by others is the AWD, they are all a little noisy. Interior design is ergonomic, S model offers nice perks for little than $15k more. Recommend mudflaps and rear bumper protector (hatch step). I am 6' tall 220 lbs and with the telescopic column and adjustable manual seat I fit comfortably, arm rest could be 4" longer. Great pickup, car cruzes at 80 MPH without too much noise, stock radio is fantastic. 115V outlet is very cool for lap top charge.

Best Features

Style, interior room, stereo, AWD handling, fuel efficiency, color (charcoal grey) seating, fold down rear cargo space, available options, stainless exhaust system, mirror visibility, Toyota quality, feels as powerful as my 07 V6 Camry.

Worst Features

Longer armrest, larger than 13.2 fuel tank (although 350 miles per tank is good at 4.25 per gallon) more standard options, since they are all good. Overdrive or select on/off for AWD models.
