About the Matrix

The Toyota Matrix (officially known as the Toyota Corolla Matrix) is a compact hatchback made by the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada in Cambridge Ontario. Inspiration for this vehicle was taken from the original Corolla and was a joint venture between Toyota and General Motors. General Motors went on to apply their own name and badge to their version, calling it the Pontiac Vibe.

Described as a sporty hatchback, Toyota aimed this model predominantly at the youth market pitching it as not only a sporty hatchback, but a ‘sport wagon’ due to its large internal capacity.

The first generation started manufacturing in 2002, with sales starting in 2003. There were two 1.8-liter engines available, labeled as the 1ZZ-FE and the 2ZZ-GE. The first line had three trim levels, standard (a no-frills option), XR & XRS, the latter featured 6 speakers, 4-wheel disc breaks and air conditioning.

The unique feature of these cars is the seating configuration. The seats all have hard plastic backing and fold flat to create a deceptively large space for extra cargo. In addition to this, the front passenger seat folds flat too, allowing for items like surfboards to be transported, or for a laptop to be rested on, again, appealing to a younger demographic.

In 2008, there was a recall of the 2003 and 2004 models due to loose bolts in each of the front doors causing the windows to pop off the runners and break. This was later discovered to be only applicable to electric windows.

The second generation went on sale in October 2007, again, three trims were available, standard, S & XRS, with Canada offered an extra fourth option. 2013 saw the discontinuation of the Matrix essentially due to declining sales. Toyota said they had no intention to replace it with a similar vehicle. Sales continued in Canada, but ultimately suffered the same fate with the withdrawal of the model in 2015.
