Orlando Toyota fans who love sporty vehicles but want crossover capability must check out the 2012 Toyota Matrix. This new model is an impressive, unique combination that shoppers are going to fall in love with!
The 2012 Matrix is available for Orlando Toyota shoppers in two grades, the base Matrix and the sporty S grade. Powertrain choices include 1.8-liter and 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines, a five-speed manual transmission, and either four- or five-speed automatic transmissions. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) Matrix S is equipped with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and the ECT four-speed automatic transmission.
The Matrix grade has earned an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 26-mpg in the city and 32-mpg on the highway for the 1.8-liter with the five-speed manual transmission. 25-mpg in the city and 32-mpg on the highway can be achieved with the 1.8-liter engine when paired with the four-speed automatic transmission.
The Matrix S is powered by the 2.4-liter engine with five-speed manual transmission and achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21-mpg in the city and 28-mpg on the highway. With the five speed automatic transmission, it earns 21-mpg in the city and 29-mpg on the highway. Orlando Toyota shoppers must see these fuel efficient, powerful models now!
Designed for fun and functionality, the 2012 Matrix provides a sporty look and maximum versatility. The standard tilt-and-telescopic sport steering wheel enhances driving-position comfort for a wide range of driver physiques. The 60/40 split folding rear seat includes a center-position headrest- so while up, you can fit another passenger easily, but while down, cargo space is plentiful!
Generous standard equipment on the Matrix grade includes power windows with driver’s side auto down, power door locks, cruise control, and color-keyed power heated outside rearview mirrors. A tilt and telescopic sport steering wheel, daytime running lights, and heavy duty rear window defogger are also standard. AM/FM/CD audio with four speakers with MP3/WMA playback capability, an auxiliary audio jack, and auto sound leveling will keep all drivers fully entertained. One thing is for sure, Orlando Toyota shoppers will have fun in this ride!
The Matrix is equipped with a high-efficiency air-conditioning system with large vents. With this system passengers can ride in maximum comfort, even on the hottest Florida afternoon. Significantly, the system’s compressor electronically varies output capacity based on heat load and engine speed, rather than simply cycling the compressor on and off. This feature reduces noise and further enhances interior comfort for Orlando Toyota fans.
The Matrix S grade also adds metallic interior trim, a 115-volt power outlet, integrated fog lamps, and a fold-flat front passenger seat. Remote keyless entry, AM/FM/CD with MP3/WMA playback capability, and six speakers are all included for added entertainment and convenience.
