2008 Toyota Matrix Review

Where the day takes you is anyone’s guess. How you get there isn’t. The 2008 Toyota Matrix is geared up for you! Front to finish the Matrix rolls in style. An aggressive front that announces it’s arrival and eye grabbing rear taillights illuminate your wake. With available front and rear spoilers driving the matrix is never a drag. Clean getaways are made easy with the Matrix’s 126 Horse Power VVT-I engine! The 1.8L 4 cylinders purr and the 36 Miles Per Gallon broaden your universe even more. The available Vehicle Stability Control system with brake assist combines with Traction Control and ABS to help reduce excessive tire slipping due to sudden change in road surface. The matrix handles whatever life throws your way. Matrix features 53 cubic feet of cargo space a flat folding passenger seat and a 60/40 split fold down rear bench seat. The Matrix’s available JBL Audio System is ready to provide the soundtrack of your life. Every Matrix comes standard with the warm glow of sporty Optitron gauges. The 2008 Toyota Matrix. A car that can keep up with everything!
