2019 Toyota Matrix Concept and Review

Sponsored Links
The 2013 Toyota Matrix salvages a midpack ranking on the strength of good safety and reliability ratings. It features poor overall performance for the class and a low-rent, somewhat cramped interior.

Pros & Cons

  • Good reliability
  • Solid safety scores for class
  • Unimpressive base engine
  • Drab interior quality
  • Few standard and available features
  • Rough ride

New for 2013

  • Bluetooth and USB port made standard
  • Touch-screen audio display available
  • Last model year of production

With its solid reliability and safety ratings, a used 2013 Toyota Matrix could be a good choice for a basic car to get you from point A to point B. However, its unimpressive engines, dull handling, and harsh ride quality should deter buyers who prioritize performance. Low-rent cabin materials and a lack of legroom make the Matrix a disappointing compact car.

Used 2013 Toyota Matrix Performance and Interior

The 2013 Toyota Matrix features one of two four-cylinder engines: a 1.8-liter that produces 132 horsepower, or a 2.4-liter that puts out 158 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive are standard; a four-speed automatic transmission is available. The 2.4-liter model has available all-wheel drive and an available five-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy ranges from an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway down to 20/26 mpg city/highway.

The base model Matrix L’s standard engine is sluggish in most situations. The larger four-cylinder available in the Matrix S model delivers good acceleration from a stop, though critics are split on how it fares after that. Some say power wanes as you speed up, while others think it stays strong for merging onto highways or passing at high speeds. The Matrix also has numb steering, noticeable body lean in turns, and a harsh and bouncy ride quality.
