2012 Toyota Matrix
Toyota Matrix Combines Sporty Design with Crossover Capability; Matrix S
Offers Available All-Wheel Drive
• Choice of Two Efficient Four-Cylinder Engines
• Available All-Wheel Drive With Active Torque Control
• Toyota Care Complimentary Maintenance Plan
The versatile and sporty Toyota Matrix, which received a significant
refresh for 2011, moves into 2012 continuing with two model grades and two
powertrain offerings and available all-wheel drive. All Matrix models also
include the Toyota Care complimentary maintenance plan, which covers the
car for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.
The five-door Toyota Matrix deftly combines a fun-to-drive spirit with the
utility of a small SUV and excellent fuel economy. The 2012 Matrix
continues to feature the standard Toyota Star Safety System™, which
includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), an
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
and Brake Assist. It also includes a Smart Stop Technology brake-override
Performance and Efficiency
The 2012 Matrix is available in two grades: 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
The Matrix grade is powered by a 1.8-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine, which
produces 132 hp at 6,000 rpm and 128 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm. Dual
Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) controls valve timing on
both the intake and Exhaust camshafts
to help optimize performance and economy. The 1.8-liter engine is paired
with a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed Electronically
Controlled automatic Transmission (ECT).
The Matrix S exclusively features a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that
produces 158 hp at 6,000 rpm and 162 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. A
balance shaft suppresses vibration, and the Exhaust system is engineered for reduced
backpressure for improved performance. This engine teams to a five-speed
manual transmission or a five-speed automatic (four-speed with AWD).
For a more engaging driving experience, the driver can shift the five-speed
automatic manually by moving the shift lever to the left from its "D"
position into the "S" position, then pushing forward for upshifts and back
Both automatics use a torque converter with flex lockup for increased fuel
efficiency. Uphill/downhill shift control selects the proper gear for
conditions and helps provide moderate engine braking during downhill
The Matrix grade has earned an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 26 mpg
city and 32 mpg highway for the 1.8-liter with the five-speed manual
transmission, and 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway for the 1.8-liter paired
with the four-speed automatic transmission.
The Matrix S powered by the 2.4-liter engine with five-speed manual
transmission achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21 mpg city and 28
mpg highway. With the five speed automatic transmission, it earns 21 mpg
city and 29 mpg highway. The Matrix S AWD with the four-speed automatic is
rated by the EPA at 20 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
Handling and Ride
The Matrix is built around a stiff, rigid body structure that relies on
high tensile-strength steels, gussets and crossmembers for its strength,
rigidity and light weight. The front suspension is composed of a compact,
rigid L-arm-type independent MacPherson strut with a stabilizer bar. The
Matrix S AWD features a double-wishbone rear suspension with a
coil-over-shock arrangement, which allows efficient packaging along with
excellent handling and ride comfort.
Four-wheel disc brakes are standard on all Matrix models. The Matrix grade
is equipped with 10.7-inch ventilated front discs and 10.1-inch solid discs
in the rear. Matrix S features 11.6-inch ventilated front discs and
10.9-inch solid discs in the rear (11.0-inch for AWD).
The Matrix's standard 16-inch steel wheels come with sporty six-spoke full
wheel covers and P205/55R16 tires. Seventeen-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels
are available on both Matrix standard and S with 215/45R17 tires.
The available AWD system with active torque control on the Matrix S is
front-wheel-drive-based and distributes torque to the rear wheels through
an electromagnetic coupler when needed, such as when the front wheels slip,
during heavy acceleration, or on a grade. This active torque control system
detects available traction based on signals sent from the ABS sensors on
each wheel to the ECU. Traction Control (TRAC) provides an extra measure of
wheel slip control, on both front-wheel-drive and AWD models.
