2010 Toyota Matrix Wagon

2010 Toyota Matrix Review

(2 Stars)  Average at best

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Toyota Matrix is based off of the Corolla frame and architecture. The Matrix was first released in 2003 and offers a small hatchback form factor comparable to the Mazda3 or the Pontiac Vibe. In 2009 the Matrix received some much needed updates to its body styling and received some new cosmetic changes on the interior. Powered by a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine that offers 158 horsepower this hatchback has plenty of pep in its step. The Matrix is gets good mileage, up to 32 on the highway and is an affordable sport hatchback starting at only $16,700. This car is mostly aimed towards the younger driver, but offers a lot of value for drivers of any age.

There are many different trim levels offered that can add on sports suspension, spoilers and of course a variation of alloy rims. This entry level hatchback offers a lot of style and would be a great car for new drivers. The base price offers a lot of value, but after adding on all the extras this economy car can cost over $20,000.
