The entry-level Toyota Matrix Base model comes with a stripped-down list of standard features for 2008. Ideal for value-minded buyers looking for a vehicle that has the characteristics of a small SUV, the five-door Matrix Base offers plenty of cargo space and such standard features as four-way adjustable front seats, a 60/40 split fold-down rear bench seat, a fold-flat passenger seat, a three-spoke steering wheel with a stepless tilt column, a tire pressure monitoring system, and a four-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player.
In the rear cargo bay, the Matrix offers eight adjustable tie-down hooks, an under-deck storage compartment, two cargo nets, and a tonneau cover.
Under the Matrix's hood, a 126-horsepower, 1.8-liter, double-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine provides adequate but not overwhelming power. The engine links to a standard five-speed manual transmission or optional four-speed automatic. Outside, the Matrix includes such features as halogen headlights and sporty 16-inch wheels.
Adds to Base:
No additional major features.

A step up from the Base model, the 2008 Toyota Matrix XR features a well-equipped interior with plenty of cargo space and a variety of seating configurations, thanks to a passenger seat that folds flat and a 60/40 split fold-down rear bench seat.
The Matrix XR also comes with such features as remote keyless entry, an illuminated entry system, and power windows, as well as a tire pressure monitoring system, an advanced airbag system, and a four-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player.
Outside, the Matrix XR displays a sporty design, with a slanted nose, a swept-back roofline, aerodynamic halogen headlights, and 16-inch wheels that add to the Matrix's sporty design.
The XR's powerplant consists of a 126-horsepower, 1.8-liter, double-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine linked to a standard five-speed manual transmission or optional four-speed automatic.
Options include power door locks and an upgraded JBL sound system, as well as various features that are part of add-on packages.
