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 2013 Toyota Matrix is priced—and equipped—a bit higher than the Corolla, but standard equipment is higher too, with this stylish hatchback aiming to offer just a little bit more than basic transportation. And as such, its standard feature set is good, but what's missing is much excitement on the options list.

Power windows and mirrors, air conditioning, and cruise control are all standard on the base Matrix, while the S model adds fog lamps, keyless entry, and an upgraded sound system. On the Matrix S model, a Sport Package is available, and it adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and body skirting.

For 2013, Toyota has introduced new audio systems, including a six-speaker system with satellite radio, iPod connectivity, and Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming included on the base model. Upscale S models include a system with a 6.1-inch touch screen. 

There are very few options available on the Matrix, other than remote engine start, a sport package, and a few appearance extras.

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.
