2005 Toyota Matrix REVIEW logo 4/6/2017

Con: Modest torque output, less fun to drive than its styling suggests.

Pro: Versatile cargo area, roomy rear seats, good gas mileage, generous standard equipment list, availability of all-wheel drive and stability control.

Edmunds Say: Versatile and affordable, the Matrix is the best compact wagon for hauling people and cargo in its price class.

What’s New: The Matrix receives a revised front bumper, taillights and grille to freshen up the exterior, along with a new audio head unit design, optional side curtain airbags and other minor interior changes. Stability control is also newly optional.
