About Toyota Matrix
The top-of-the-line model, which cost US$18,750-, included four-wheel disc brakes and six speakers as standard. Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, 16-inch alloy wheels, and cruise control were also standard on all XRS models. 17-inch wheels were available in 2003, but only on vehicles without a sunroof. In the second year of production, a combination of 17-inch (430 mm) wheels and a sunroof became offered. An XRS started at $18,850 in 2005 and sold for at least $19,250 in its final year.
The XRS trim level had an engine upgrade to Toyota’s more powerful 2ZZ-GE engine. With a displacement of 1,796 cc (1.796 L; 109.6 cu in), it developed 180 hp (134 kW) and 130 lbft (176 Nm) – a then-unusual 100 horsepower-per-liter. While the engine’s 11.5:1 compression ratio played a significant role in its performance, the engine could switch to a second cam profile at higher RPM via Toyota’s VVTL-i and was meant to operate at up to 8500 RPM. Because of the engine’s high compression, “premium” fuel (91 octane or higher on the (R+M)/2 scale) is required. With the exception of an optional automatic in 2003, the XRS was exclusively available with a six-speed manual transmission. The 2ZZ was a Transitional Low Emission Vehicle (TLEV) in its first year of production before being upgraded with a smog pump and reclassified as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) in 2004. (ULEV).
The Matrix could come to a complete stop from 60 mph (97 km/h) in only 114 feet (35 m).
The XRS has a weight distribution of 59/41 (front/rear) due to being front wheel drive, which may result in understeer when driven forcefully. It has a comparatively light weight of 2,800 lb (1,300 kg).
