Benefits of Driving a 2013 Toyota Matrix Hatchback

Despite the slight price increase for the 2013 model year, the Matrix still comes down as a great value in the crossover and sport wagon segment. The base model with the manual transmission starts at $19,275. Vehicle stability control and traction control are standard even on the base model -- which achieves 26 mpg city and 32 mpg highway with the manual transmission.

What's new for 2013?

The Matrix carries into 2013 with few changes. The stereo has been upgraded for both the base and S versions. Both now feature hands free Bluetooth technology as well as iPod integration. The S model gets a 6.1-inch screen set in the dash, while the base model now has six speakers.

Model Strengths

  • Versatile cargo-carrying ability
  • standard safety features
  • 32-plus mpg on the highway

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
