Perceived very much as a ‘me too’ product in the all-important mid-sized multipurpose vehicle sector, Matrix is a five door machine offered with three engine options; a 1.6 or 1.8 petrol engine, or perhaps a 1.5 diesel.
Nobody gets terribly looking forward to this car, due to the fact it is not exciting in any area.
Performance is average, handling is average, braking is tight; this really is elevator music on wheels. But when you are in the marketplace for a no-nonsense, affordable method of having your children back and forth from school, the Matrix might be for you.
Its looks are quiet and understated – it had been styled by Pininfarina – also it does what it is designed to do, forget about with no less.
