2005 Toyota Matrix Overview

The Toyota Matrix combines the style and fun of a sport coupe with the utility of a small sport utility at the price of a compact.Matrix was designed for people who want a vehicle with a sporty image and high functionality.

We found the Matrix offers peppy acceleration, particularly around town.It corners nicely yet offers a smooth, comfortable ride.Matrix is practical, with a big cargo area that can be expanded by folding down the rear seats.And it's stylish.

While the high-performance XRS model has drawn some attention with its high-revving 180-horsepower engine, we preferred the 130-horsepower models for their more relaxed, more pleasant demeanor.Most popular is the mid-grade Matrix XR.

Minor styling revisions freshen the appearance of the Matrix for 2005.More important, side curtain airbags have been added as optional equipment and come packaged with seat-mounted side-impact airbags ($645).Also optional on 2005 models is Vehicle Stability Control, or VSC, which virtually eliminates skidding.This is in addition to optional anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, designed to help the driver maintain steering control in an emergency braking situation.

Matrix is based on the Toyota Corolla and is built in California at a plant jointly owned with General Motors.Matrix was introduced as a 2003 model.It has proven to be a popular vehicle: Toyota sold more than 67,000 of them during calendar year 2003.Pontiac sold nearly 57,000 Vibe models during that same period.
