Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, though the SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be an excellent bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide selection of options, to help you pick and choose those that are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo. Coming off a redesign just last year, the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a while, you will get the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo with a four-cylinder engine or even a stronger V6, or you may get the miserly Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo Hybrid. On the highway, the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo is comfortable and compliant. Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you choose among the upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to choose from over the way.
The Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo is as competent while they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content helps it be supremely simple to drive. If you’re looking for something with a little more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo might you should be the sedan for you.
The Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features on the upper trim levels can be added to the low trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL audio system combined with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The Toyota Matrix 2020 Photo features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so that the front seat need not be scooted entirely forward.
