2020 Toyota Matrix New Review

Read our most comprehensive review of the 2020 Toyota Matrix standard features, trim levels, and available options. Additional new features for the 2020 Toyota Matrix include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2020 Toyota Matrix is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.


  • Spacious interior
  • Fuel efficient hybrid variant
  • An 8.4-inch infotainment screen on most trims


  • All-wheel drive is only available with the V-6
  • Subpar interior fit and finish
  • Sloppy handling and steering

In a 2018 comparison test that included the other cars, the 2020 Toyota Matrix placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2020 Toyota Matrix weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2020 Toyota Matrix, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2020 Toyota Matrix doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rear view camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.

The car is the only 2020 Toyota Matrix trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
