2009 toyota matrix review this car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale. All-new version much improved, practical, fuel-efficient. introductionthe 2009 toyota matrix is a new, second-generation design developed in tandem with the corolla sedan. In essence, the matrix is the wagon/hatch version of the corolla. In fact, the company refers to it as the toyota corolla matrix. Everything else is newer, making the matrix an all-new car. The 1. 8-liter engine is new. Gearboxes, brakes, steering and safety systems have all been redone. The body work is all new, also, though the design is an evolutionary update of the previous version.  the new 2009 toyota matrix is bigger than the previous version, but toyota hasn't lost sight of this being its smallest crossover vehicle. Given toyota's history we can't imagine they will require much in the way of expensive repairs or maintenance. The matrix doesn't stand out anywhere as much as it provides a useful, better than average package for any purpose short of pickup-sized building materials or a trip to the red carpet. In short, the new toyota matrix is a very sensible choice.  by price and hatchback design, the matrix slots into multiple categories for cross-shoppers, including roomy compact cars such as the honda fit, nissan versa, subaru impreza, and vw golf; small vans and crossovers such as the honda cr-v, kia sportage/hyundai tucson, mazda5, nissan rogue; and the less-easily categorized chevrolet hhr, dodge caliber, scion xd, and suzuki sx4. lineupthe 2009 toyota matrix comes in base, s, s awd, and xrs models.  the standard matrix 16,190) uses a 1. 8-liter engine and five-speed manual gearbox and comes with cloth upholstery, air conditioning, 60/40 split-fold rear seat, am/fm/cd stereo compatible with mp3/wma files, input jack and xm satellite radio, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, optitron (electroluminescent) gauges with tachometer, power mirrors, intermittent wipers, engine immobilizer, and cargo cover. Options include alloy wheels, six-speaker radio upgrade, power locks/windows, keyless entry, cruise control, moonroof, lighter, an all-weather package (heated mirrors, intermittent rear wiper, rear-seat heat ducts), electronic stability control.  matrix s 18,260) comes with the 2. 4-liter engine and five-speed gearbox. Standard features include the six-speaker radio, power windows/locks, keyless entry and intermittent rear wiper plus a 115-volt ac outlet and larger rear brakes. Options on the all-wheel drive are similar to s, excepting the all-weather and five-speed automatic.  matrix xrs 20,660) comes with the 2. 4-liter and five-speed manual, plus seat fabric upgrade, 215/45r18 tires on alloy wheels, front strut brace, electronic stability/traction control, three-spoke leather steering wheel, rear spoiler, fog lamps, and the independent rear suspension and big rear brakes. Xrs options are limited to the jbl sound system or navigation, moonroof, cruise control, lighter, all-weather, and five-speed automatic transmission 21,850).  safety features that come on all models include front airbags, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, antilock brakes with brake assist, tire pressure monitors, and daytime running lights. Electronic stability control is standard on xrs and optional on others. walkaroundthe 2009 toyota matrix is just slightly larger than its predecessor though it looks significantly larger. It's a fraction of an inch longer and lower than the previous model.  three factors add to its visual size: first, the nose is sleeker, with lights that more closely parallel the camry, s and xrs models have a deeper chin than before, and the grille opening sweeps cleanly up and outboard on the hood, becoming the base of the windshield pillar. The second contributor is the inch-wider rear track which carries more visual weight further aft. Finally, the c-pillar (the roof support behind the back door) is very thick and the side window has been removed, with just a sliver of curved glass at the end, leading into the hatch glass.  the longer, lower front end of s and xrs models employs outer black nacelles for fog lamp housings and the center section is dark to the bottom for a more aggressive look. The s and xrs also have different lower trim all around the body and the dark material that shows on the seams between the panels and main bodywork gives a hint of the add-on look, a situation more pronounced on light-color cars.  in profile the front side windows resemble a wine glass on its side; the upper side curved along its length and the lower side scoops downward, for a good view of the mirror without the mirror blocking any forward or side vision, and then begins the taper upward to the rear. Painted mirrors and door handles, lack of any side moldings, and just two pieces of glass keep visual clutter to a minimum.  seventeen-inch wheels make the best of big wheel wells while the rear spoiler serves as a punctuation point to an otherwise near-hemispherical rear end, and auxiliary sunshade for rear-seat riders.  it's no stretch to consider matrix the wagon or hatchback version of the corolla, indeed the official name is corolla matrix. The corolla is about seven inches longer and half that lower, excepting headroom has larger interior dimensions but a smaller trunk. Expect a matirx to cost about $1,000 more than a similarly equipped corolla. interiorinside, however, any relation to a corolla vanishes at the first glimpse of the dash, the matrix trading conservative for a more stylish look with sweeping metal-look surfaces on both sides of the instrument cluster. Two large omni-directional vents peer out the top like bug eyes and frame the gauges that include round dials for speed and engine revs and an oblong unit for ancillary information.  at this price point the materials include fabric upholstery and door panels, with plastic on trim pieces such as lower doors. It doesn't look cheap or like this is where the money was saved, and all the switchgear has a quality feel to it. Colors carry a fire theme, with either ash (light gray) or charcoal (very dark gray) to choose from. A variety of storage spaces and sizes can be found within driver's reach, and most have a nonskid, quieting rubber mat on the bottom, a big improvement over the slippery surface that came standard on the previous-generation matrix.  manually adjusted front buckets are well-placed for tall driver headroom and short driver visibility, and provide good support for the length of time it takes to burn a tank of gas, which is a long time. Primary operating controls are on steering column stalks, with less-frequent items like the optional stability control defeat on the dash; the shifter (automatic or manual) rides on a perch off.

In short, the new toyota matrix is a very sensible choice.  by price and hatchback design, the matrix slots into multiple categories for cross-shoppers, including roomy compact cars such as the honda fit, nissan versa, subaru impreza, and vw golf; small vans and crossovers such as the honda cr-v, kia sportage/hyundai tucson, mazda5, nissan rogue; and the less-easily categorized chevrolet hhr, dodge caliber, scion xd, and suzuki sx4. lineupthe 2009 toyota matrix comes in base, s, s awd, and xrs models.  the standard matrix 16,190) uses a 1. 8-liter engine and five-speed manual gearbox and comes with cloth upholstery, air conditioning, 60/40 split-fold rear seat, am/fm/cd stereo compatible with mp3/wma files, input jack and xm satellite radio, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, optitron (electroluminescent) gauges with tachometer, power mirrors, intermittent wipers, engine immobilizer, and cargo cover. Options include alloy wheels, six-speaker radio upgrade, power locks/windows, keyless entry, cruise control, moonroof, lighter, an all-weather package (heated mirrors, intermittent rear wiper, rear-seat heat ducts), electronic stability control.  matrix s 18,260) comes with the 2. 4-liter engine and five-speed gearbox. Standard features include the six-speaker radio, power windows/locks, keyless entry and intermittent rear wiper plus a 115-volt ac outlet and larger rear brakes. Options on the all-wheel drive are similar to s, excepting the all-weather and five-speed automatic.  matrix xrs 20,660) comes with the 2. 4-liter and five-speed manual, plus seat fabric upgrade, 215/45r18 tires on alloy wheels, front strut brace, electronic stability/traction control, three-spoke leather steering wheel, rear spoiler, fog lamps, and the independent rear suspension and big rear brakes. Xrs options are limited to the jbl sound system or navigation, moonroof, cruise control, lighter, all-weather, and five-speed automatic transmission 21,850).  safety features that come on all models include front airbags, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, antilock brakes with brake assist, tire pressure monitors, and daytime running lights. Electronic stability control is standard on xrs and optional on others. walkaroundthe 2009 toyota matrix is just slightly larger than its predecessor though it looks significantly larger. It's a fraction of an inch longer and lower than the previous model.  three factors add to its visual size: first, the nose is sleeker, with lights that more closely parallel the camry, s and xrs models have a deeper chin than before, and the grille opening sweeps cleanly up and outboard on the hood, becoming the base of the windshield pillar. The second contributor is the inch-wider rear track which carries more visual weight further aft. Finally, the c-pillar (the roof support behind the back door) is very thick and the side window has been removed, with just a sliver of curved glass at the end, leading into the hatch glass.  the longer, lower front end of s and xrs models employs outer black nacelles for fog lamp housings and the center section is dark to the bottom for a more aggressive look. The s and xrs also have different lower trim all around the body and the dark material that shows on the seams between the panels and main bodywork gives a hint of the add-on look, a situation more pronounced on light-color cars.  in profile the front side windows resemble a wine glass on its side; the upper side curved along its length and the lower side scoops downward, for a good view of the mirror without the mirror blocking any forward or side vision, and then begins the taper upward to the rear. Painted mirrors and door handles, lack of any side moldings, and just two pieces of glass keep visual clutter to a minimum.  seventeen-inch wheels make the best of big wheel wells while the rear spoiler serves as a punctuation point to an otherwise near-hemispherical rear end, and auxiliary sunshade for rear-seat riders.  it's no stretch to consider matrix the wagon or hatchback version of the corolla, indeed the official name is corolla matrix. The corolla is about seven inches longer and half that lower, excepting headroom has larger interior dimensions but a smaller trunk. Expect a matirx to cost about $1,000 more than a similarly equipped corolla. interiorinside, however, any relation to a corolla vanishes at the first glimpse of the dash, the matrix trading conservative for a more stylish look with sweeping metal-look surfaces on both sides of the instrument cluster. Two large omni-directional vents peer out the top like bug eyes and frame the gauges that include round dials for speed and engine revs and an oblong unit for ancillary information.  at this price point the materials include fabric upholstery and door panels, with plastic on trim pieces such as lower doors. It doesn't look cheap or like this is where the money was saved, and all the switchgear has a quality feel to it. Colors carry a fire theme, with either ash (light gray) or charcoal (very dark gray) to choose from. A variety of storage spaces and sizes can be found within driver's reach, and most have a nonskid, quieting rubber mat on the bottom, a big improvement over the slippery surface that came standard on the previous-generation matrix.  manually adjusted front buckets are well-placed for tall driver headroom and short driver visibility, and provide good support for the length of time it takes to burn a tank of gas, which is a long time. Primary operating controls are on steering column stalks, with less-frequent items like the optional stability control defeat on the dash; the shifter (automatic or manual) rides on a perch off.

2009 toyota matrix review this car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale. All-new version much improved, practical, fuel-efficient. introductionthe 2009 toyota matrix is a new, second-generation design developed in tandem with the corolla sedan. In essence, the matrix is the wagon/hatch version of the corolla. In fact, the company refers to it as the toyota corolla matrix. Everything else is newer, making the matrix an all-new car. The 1. 8-liter engine is new. Gearboxes, brakes, steering and safety systems have all been redone. The body work is all new, also, though the design is an evolutionary update of the previous version.  the new 2009 toyota matrix is bigger than the previous version, but toyota hasn't lost sight of this being its smallest crossover vehicle. Given toyota's history we can't imagine they will require much in the way of expensive repairs or maintenance. The matrix doesn't stand out anywhere as much as it provides a useful, better than average package for any purpose short of pickup-sized building materials or a trip to the red carpet. In short, the new toyota matrix is a very sensible choice.  by price and hatchback design, the matrix slots into multiple categories for cross-shoppers, including roomy compact cars such as the honda fit, nissan versa, subaru impreza, and vw golf; small vans and crossovers such as the honda cr-v, kia sportage/hyundai tucson, mazda5, nissan rogue; and the less-easily categorized chevrolet hhr, dodge caliber, scion xd, and suzuki sx4. lineupthe 2009 toyota matrix comes in base, s, s awd, and xrs models.  the standard matrix 16,190) uses a 1. 8-liter engine and five-speed manual gearbox and comes with cloth upholstery, air conditioning, 60/40 split-fold rear seat, am/fm/cd stereo compatible with mp3/wma files, input jack and xm satellite radio, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, optitron (electroluminescent) gauges with tachometer, power mirrors, intermittent wipers, engine immobilizer, and cargo cover. Options include alloy wheels, six-speaker radio upgrade, power locks/windows, keyless entry, cruise control, moonroof, lighter, an all-weather package (heated mirrors, intermittent rear wiper, rear-seat heat ducts), electronic stability control.  matrix s 18,260) comes with the 2. 4-liter engine and five-speed gearbox. Standard features include the six-speaker radio, power windows/locks, keyless entry and intermittent rear wiper plus a 115-volt ac outlet and larger rear brakes. Options on the all-wheel drive are similar to s, excepting the all-weather and five-speed automatic.  matrix xrs 20,660) comes with the 2. 4-liter and five-speed manual, plus seat fabric upgrade, 215/45r18 tires on alloy wheels, front strut brace, electronic stability/traction control, three-spoke leather steering wheel, rear spoiler, fog lamps, and the independent rear suspension and big rear brakes. Xrs options are limited to the jbl sound system or navigation, moonroof, cruise control, lighter, all-weather, and five-speed automatic transmission 21,850).  safety features that come on all models include front airbags, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, antilock brakes with brake assist, tire pressure monitors, and daytime running lights. Electronic stability control is standard on xrs and optional on others. walkaroundthe 2009 toyota matrix is just slightly larger than its predecessor though it looks significantly larger. It's a fraction of an inch longer and lower than the previous model.  three factors add to its visual size: first, the nose is sleeker, with lights that more closely parallel the camry, s and xrs models have a deeper chin than before, and the grille opening sweeps cleanly up and outboard on the hood, becoming the base of the windshield pillar. The second contributor is the inch-wider rear track which carries more visual weight further aft. Finally, the c-pillar (the roof support behind the back door) is very thick and the side window has been removed, with just a sliver of curved glass at the end, leading into the hatch glass.  the longer, lower front end of s and xrs models employs outer black nacelles for fog lamp housings and the center section is dark to the bottom for a more aggressive look. The s and xrs also have different lower trim all around the body and the dark material that shows on the seams between the panels and main bodywork gives a hint of the add-on look, a situation more pronounced on light-color cars.  in profile the front side windows resemble a wine glass on its side; the upper side curved along its length and the lower side scoops downward, for a good view of the mirror without the mirror blocking any forward or side vision, and then begins the taper upward to the rear. Painted mirrors and door handles, lack of any side moldings, and just two pieces of glass keep visual clutter to a minimum.  seventeen-inch wheels make the best of big wheel wells while the rear spoiler serves as a punctuation point to an otherwise near-hemispherical rear end, and auxiliary sunshade for rear-seat riders.  it's no stretch to consider matrix the wagon or hatchback version of the corolla, indeed the official name is corolla matrix. The corolla is about seven inches longer and half that lower, excepting headroom has larger interior dimensions but a smaller trunk. Expect a matirx to cost about $1,000 more than a similarly equipped corolla. interiorinside, however, any relation to a corolla vanishes at the first glimpse of the dash, the matrix trading conservative for a more stylish look with sweeping metal-look surfaces on both sides of the instrument cluster. Two large omni-directional vents peer out the top like bug eyes and frame the gauges that include round dials for speed and engine revs and an oblong unit for ancillary information.  at this price point the materials include fabric upholstery and door panels, with plastic on trim pieces such as lower doors. It doesn't look cheap or like this is where the money was saved, and all the switchgear has a quality feel to it. Colors carry a fire theme, with either ash (light gray) or charcoal (very dark gray) to choose from. A variety of storage spaces and sizes can be found within driver's reach, and most have a nonskid, quieting rubber mat on the bottom, a big improvement over the slippery surface that came standard on the previous-generation matrix.  manually adjusted front buckets are well-placed for tall driver headroom and short driver visibility, and provide good support for the length of time it takes to burn a tank of gas, which is a long time.
