For added utility, the Matrix features an easily cleaned plastic cargo floor and in-floor cargo tracks with adjustable tie-down points. Overall, the Toyota Matrix offers a satisfying solution for people with varying needs.

On the XR, those wheels can be either 16 or 17 inches in diameter. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a four-speed automatic is optional on both trim levels.

Safety Antilock brakes are optional on all Toyota Matrix wagons, as are front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. In frontal crash testing conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Toyota Matrix earned a perfect five stars for driver protection and four stars for the front passenger.
When equipped with the optional side airbags, the Matrix received five stars for front-occupant protection and four stars for the rear. Without these airbags, it received only three stars for front-occupant protection. Still, cars with the manual transmission respond to a little more whip.
Interior The Toyota Matrix offers a pleasant interior design with a simple control layout, solid quality materials and above-average fit and finish for this segment. Those who carry cargo will find that the Matrix functions much like a small SUV. The rear hatch opens skyward and the rear glass can be raised independently to allow surfboards to hang out the back. In addition, the cargo area and rear seatbacks are trimmed in low-maintenance plastic, and a pair of in-floor cargo tracks incorporate eight adjustable tie-down hooks.
For protecting valuables, a hidden storage compartment resides underneath the floor. Consumer reviews Read what other owners think about the Toyota Matrix.
