Toyota Matrix

2013-Toyota-MatrixLooking for a compact Toyota hatchback? You’d better check out the Scion store because there’s nothing to see in the Capital T’s showrooms anymore. The Japanese automaker discontinued its Corolla-based Matrix model last year. The boring but bulletproof utility has been offered in the U.S. market for 10 years but weak demand forced the company to rethink its position in their lineup, and they thought it right the hell out of showrooms.

    Wait a sec, the Tribeca came out as a 2013 model and is now out as a 2014.

    A simple list with descriptions and pictures is nice. I hate these slideshows you have to wait to load…

    Regarding the Audi TT-RS, the article complains that 5-cylinder engines are not enjoyable and “go against physics.” Then it says the motor was fantastic in the TT-RS. Is your author schizophrenic?

    I seem to remember some awesome Audi Quattro 20-valve 5-cylinder rallye cars back in the 80′s. This motor is a VW-Audi staple. If I remember correctly Audi first employed the 5-cylinder engine in the 1976 Audi 100. Bullsh*t about “moaning like a camel.” I think they’ve got it working like a champ over the last 38 years.

    I believe Craig was complaining about the regular 2.5L 5-cyl used in the Golf and other cars. The Audi’s TT-RS’s 2.5T is amazing. We’re big fans! http://www.autoguide.com/manufacturer/audi/2012-audi-ttrs-review-video-1800.html
