Once upon a time, there was a Corolla wagon. But it just wasn't, you know, cool. So Toyota invented the Matrix crossover. Yeah, we know it looks like a Scion. But hey, the Matrix got here first. Restyled a bit last year, the Matrix is available as a base model with the Corolla's 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, or as a sporty S version that's powered by a larger and more powerful 2.4-liter. All-wheel drive is offered on the latter. The 5-passenger cabin has standard air conditioning, 4-speaker audio and cruise control. Flip down the split-folding rear seats and there's room for nearly 50 cu. ft. of stuff. A Premium Package spiffs up your Matrix with a power moonroof, USB/iPod port, Bluetooth streaming audio and XM satellite radio.
