“Though it offers plenty of practicality and comfort, the … Toyota Matrix has been overshadowed by newer competing hatchbacks.” — Edmunds
Hatchback cars are sportier and more stylish than the saloons; this is exactly the quality Toyota Matrix 2013 has taken. It has attracted younger riders more on such basis; but practically, it is less sporty than its design suggests.
The new Toyota Matrix 2013 is highlighted for its jaunty roofline, enjoyable ride, broad backseat, automatic controls, safe to handle, city-friendly mobility, latest audio system and flat load floor but it has some serious cons as well like it is not recommended for tall drivers, boring interior clean-cut and frustrating fuel economy.
It is available in two basic models and it price ranges from MSRP $ 19,275 to $ 22,415.
Its base model has 132 horsepower and 1.8L 4-cylinders engine while the other model includes 158 horsepower and 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engines. 1.8 liter engine is better for an all-wheel-drive in our opinion. It has a comparatively smaller engine which is making it sluggish while driving. It has a lesser gas mileage, it means that Toyota Matrix will only get 32 mpg highway, at the most. This makes it less appealing for racers or highway rovers.
