2010 Toyota Matrix Price in Nigeria – Specs, Interior and Engine

The Toyota Matrix has always been a utility vehicle. It is practical and durable, but ultimately less exciting than its voguish styling suggests. With its 2009 redesign, the hatchback remains true to those roots. It has a larger engine and this raises the performance bar a few notches, but the utility is still the name of the game. This car is worth a look, but with competitors encroaching from every side, it doesn’t bring as much to the field as it once did.

The Matrix comes in three trim levels: the basic Standard, a better-equipped S and a sportier XRS. All-wheel drive is optional on the Matrix S. The Matrix shares roots with the Toyota Corolla and Scion xB, and Pontiac markets a related hatchback in the Vibe.

2010 Toyota Matrix Features

The Toyota Matrix is not a luxury vehicle so do not expect anything close to what you would find in a luxury vehicle. It just has standard features.

These standard features on the 2010 Matrix vary considerably according to trim level. Power mirrors, tilt and telescoping steering, and an auxiliary input jack—items that aren’t always standard on small cars—are standard on the base model.

Perhaps more noteworthy than what’s included is what doesn’t come standard on the base model of the 2009 Toyota Corolla Matrix; cruise control, keyless entry and power windows and locks are optional on this version.

The S upgrades to power windows and locks, a useful 115-volt power outlet good for laptops, cruise control, and a flat-folding front passenger seat, plus other dress-ups. The sportiest XRS gets a strut-tower brace for improved handling, as well as 18-inch alloy wheels.

A number of options are available, especially on the S and XRS versions. Among them, the DVD-based navigation system with XM NavTraffic will likely be one of the most sought-after. Furthermore, Edmunds reports that the options list for the S and XRS includes a “JBL sound system,” which offers “decent sound, but it lacks a USB port for iPod integration, which Toyota says isn’t even available as a dealer accessory. The Scion xB that’s often sold at the same dealerships has an iPod port standard.

Two engines are available: a 1.8-litre four-cylinder in the base Matrix, and a 2.4-litre four-cylinder in the XR, XRS and AWD. All use a five-speed manual or optional five-speed automatic transmission, except for the AWD model, which uses a four-speed automatic only.

Final Words

The Toyota Matrix provides the economy-minded pricing and operation of a compact car with the practicality of a hatch. All-wheel drive is available, an important option for those who need it that not all competitors offer. One never feels something is missing or left out, especially with the addition of a navigation system, and the new styling won’t be dated before the next version of Windows or iPhone.
