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


Driving experience is fun for a crossover AWD vehicle. Ride is fairly smooth and build quality seems good other than a crackle and pop here and there. The car has ample power for a 158 hp 4 cylinder with all wheel drive, especially when driven in 3rd. Has plenty of room in it and versatility. The car has good looks inside and out, and definitely doesn't blend in with the ugly looks of some of it's competitors. The dash layout is very nice and sporty looking, and is easy on the eyes.

Best Features

AWD, heated mirrors, cargo space, design of instrumentation, handling for car of its size

Worst Features

MPG isn't the best it should be. The stereo system is mediocre and isn't all that great. I think Toyota needs to look into a better sound system, and maybe a CVT or 5/6 spd auto next time for better fuel economy. The seats could let down a little farther too, and an electrochromic rearview std.
