The stylishness, spaciousness and fuel economy are performance factors that attract users to the car in no small number. In Kenya, the Matrix may be a common car, a sworn statement to what proportion we appreciate the usefulness of the car.
Do not be deceived by its size, it can carry even as much load as a compact SUV, making it a perfect car for little families. the various trim levels also are provided to satisfy the varying preferences of users with just a few extra bucks on top of it.
While the bottom model is crammed with tons of features, the opposite trims still have some more optional features on them. a number of the eye- catching features of the bottom drive include power mirrors, a tilt- and- telescoping wheel, 16- inch steel wheels, a CD stereo that comes with an auxiliary port, and a front passenger set that folds flat.
Going up the trim levels, we start to ascertain some standard features on the S model which are optional for the bottom model. Some S model standard features are unavailable on the bottom model altogether. The features of the S model include a stereo upgrade, 115- volt utility outlet, underbody spoilers, keyless entry, control, and a car window wiper. While the all- wheel- drive option of the S model doesn' t have the underbody spoilers, it makes up for it by featuring an independent rear suspension and fog lights.
The XRS model gets better with it features. it' s 18- inch alloy wheels, seat fabrics that look more beautiful, wheel wrapped in leather, rear roof spoiler, sport- tuned suspension and steering, and a few more.

The base model features a 1. 8 L four- cylinder engine that outputs 132 horsepower with a typical 5- speed manual transmission. Four- speed automatic drive is, however, optional for the bottom model. And with this engine, the bottom model boasts of the simplest fuel economy of all the trim levels with 28 mpg combined for the manual transmission.
Both Matrix S and XRS feature a more powerful engine but at the expense of reduced fuel economy. They both have a 2. 4 L engine that features a maximum power output of 158 hp. The combined fuel economy for these trim levels on both city and highway then falls to 24 mpg.
While the acceleration of the bottom model might sound quite sluggish, the S and XRS models have more agile acceleration.
