Toyota Matrix still moving forward!

2011 Toyota Matrix S 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Neat exterior design, but could use the upper rear spoiler like the 2010 Matrix XRS model before it. But vehicle is still rather stylish!

AWD S model definitely has the upgraded 2.4 liter power of the previous Matrix XRS, the Scion XB and the previous Toyota Camry models. With 16-Valve/Dual VVT-i & 4 cyl in-line type auto transmission.

Common features that are now standard with almost all of the new Toyota's are traction control, vehicle stabilizer control, ABS, EBT, & smart stop technology braking system.

Best Features

All Wheel Drive system. AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA Player with 6-speakers. Integrated Fog Lamps. Anti-Theft system with Engine Immobilizer. Daytime running lamps. In-key Remote Keyless Entry system. 6-Way Adjustable Driver Seat. 4-Way Adjustable Fold Flat Front Passenger Seat. 60/40 Split Fold-Down Rear Seat. Power Door locks. Power Windows. Cruise Control. Cargo Area Tonneau Cover. Tire Pressure Monitor System like most of the new Toyota's/Scion's and Lexus's the last few years. Barely any Blind-Spots hampering driver vision.

Worst Features

With the technology that Toyota has developed, the company could probably up the EPA fuel economy. Up the 2.4 Liter to maybe a 2.5 or 2.6 Liter. Up the horsepower from 158 to a little more 166HP with definitely a little more torque, behind it. The company has definitely done this with little bigger Toyota's like the Rav-4, Camry and the FJ Cruiser. This vehicle is set on the Corolla framework, which has been the smaller mainstay for Toyota in the U.S.A. for quite some time. A very very successful product here for a long time. It has proven itself, just as the Camry has. Time to continue to move forward even more Toyota and not let Honda, Nissan, Kia, and Hyundai out-do the small car.
