    2005 Toyota Matrix Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Toyota Matrix

    • We liked the cool seats, the neat dash with instruments slotted into long tunnels and all that room.

      - AutoWeek
    • Steering is quick, handling is nimble and bumps are soaked up by the supple suspension, which provides a good ride.

      - Carpoint.com
    • Steering is precise and even if the center of gravity is relatively high there is little body roll.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • Toyota quite rightly says it is a car that combines the style and performance of a sports car, the functionality of an SUV, and the affordability of a compact sedan.

    What reviewers liked least about the Toyota Matrix

    • Moreover, the gauges are almost impossible to read with polarized sunglasses, which "wash out" the markings.

      - Carpoint.com
    • Shorter passengers sitting in the rear seats might find the view slightly claustrophobic due to the small side windows.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • The engine is buzzy, which will appeal to younger buyers but might become a little annoying to older people.

    Toyota Matrix Comparisons

    • The Pontiac Vibe is slightly longer and 1.6 inches taller than the Toyota Matrix.

      - Cars.com
    • The Matrix might offer a taller load area, but its 21.8 cubic feet of capacity with the rear seats up and 53.2 cubic feet with the seats folded are still less than 'true' wagons like the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Jetta provide.

    Best one-liner about the Toyota Matrix

    • Shifting through the gears around town you'd feel downright psychotic winding out to redline in this thing.
