Matrix

Sharing platforms, powertrains and components with the Pontiac Vibe, but offering its own distinctive exterior and interior styling, the Matrix is a Corolla-based sports wagon that's available in either front- or all-wheel drive. It's powered in its base version by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower in front-drive form and 123 horses with AWD; it can be fitted to either a five-speed manual (with front-drive models) or a four-speed automatic transmission. The top XRS is the sportiest version, by virtue of its more powerful 170-horsepower version of the 1.8-liter engine and standard six-speed manual transmission, which is the only available gearbox. Split-folding rear seats with ample tie-down locations and assorted storage areas and bins add to the Matrix's inherent utility. Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution are included on the top version and are offered elsewhere in the line, while Vehicle Stability Control is optionally offered on front-drive models. It sees minor changes only for 2006.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
