Product Overview

Toyota Matrix 2 (chassis code E140) is an affordable compact hatchback in production from 2008 to 2014. It was available with two inline-4 engines that displaced 1.8 and 2.4 liters respectively.
Designed for the North American market, the Matrix 2 can be considered an equivalent of the Auris Mk1, though Toyota gave the Matrix a more powerful engine.
Like most compact hatchbacks, the Matrix 2 lacks fully independent suspensions and is meant to offer a low running cost.
