Expert Quotes:

It did not have Bluetooth. It did not have cruise control. It did not have a USB port. It did not have satellite radio. But there was a handy 115-volt power outlet in the dashboard. You don’t see that every day.

The Matrix is priced above the Corolla, but it isn't trying to be completely basic transportation in the same way.

The base model comes with power windows and mirrors, air conditioning, and cruise control, while the S model adds fog lamps, keyless entry, and an upgraded sound system. A Sport Package is available on the S, and it includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and body skirting.

Many shoppers will be disappointed to find out that a Bluetooth hands-free interface is only offered in the S model; step up to the Premium Package on S models and you get Bluetooth audio streaming, a USB input, and full iPod connectivity with a sound-system upgrade. A 115-volt power outlet is also included.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Toyota Matrix is equipped reasonably well, but it's a big disappointment that Bluetooth isn't more widely available.

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.
