The base models include 16-inch steel wheels, CD with four speakers, front pail seats, 60/40 split back bench seat, tilt wheel, cargo cover, double manual-remote mirrors, taken care of recurring front wipers as well as recurring rear washer/wiper. Anti-lock brakes are conventional on the base 4WD model.

The XR versions add cooling, power windows, power locks with keyless entry, power mirrors, leather-wrapped wheel, brightened access, cruise control, map lights, a tire pressure monitoring system (on 4WD designs only), 16-inch alloy wheels, and variable recurring wipers.

The XRS version consists of all of the XR attributes, plus four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, six-disc CD player with four audio speakers, 115-volt accessory outlet, 17-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, skirt package, as well as power sunroof.

The Ontario-built, Corolla-based Matrix is a sibling auto to the California-built Pontiac Vibe. It's exceptionally functional, offering lots of storage room and a configuration that makes it nearly a small minivan. It flights as well as handles well, although its sitting placement isn't really constantly comfortable for taller chauffeurs. The 170 hp XRS is a fun and also muscular flight. Chrysler PT Cruiser's newly-reduced $15,998 base price undercuts the base Matrix by $1,052; although the PT has more horsepower, its larger aesthetic weight leads to efficiency that really feels regarding the very same, and the Toyota's build quality is much better.

While the stylish and also flexible small Matrix wagon shares systems, powertrains, as well as components with the Pontiac Ambiance, it includes its own unique exterior and interior styling therapies. Readily available in either front- or four-wheel drive, the Matrix's features a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 130 horse power in the base version and 123 equines in XR trim, as well as can be fitted to either a five-speed guidebook (with front-drive designs) or a four-speed transmission. The top XRS model features a more-satisfying 173-horsepower variation of the 1.8-liter engine as well as uses a six-speed manual transmission. Split-folding rear seats with ample tie-down areas and also diverse storage space areas and also bins contribute to the Matrix's inherent utility. Typical functions consist of anti-lock brakes with brakeforce circulation, air conditioning, and a CD stereo; a satellite navigating system is amongst the lorry's several alternatives. Few alterations are anticipated for 2005.
