Default 2007 Toyota Corolla Matrix M-Theory

2007 Toyota Corolla Matrix M-Theory



Also in bold...looks like Toyota canceled the AWD version and the XRS (164hp)model...i wonder if this will be the curtain call for the Matrix

Press Release:
Quote:
TORRANCE, Calif., July 31 -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today announced manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRP) for the 2007 Corolla Matrix. Corolla Matrix will be a carryover for the 2007 model year and will arrive at dealerships in August.

Also arriving in August is the new 2007 special edition Matrix M-Theory package. The M-Theory adds several sporty exterior enhancements including unique Speedway Blue paint with matching rear deck lid spoiler, a large chrome exhaust tip and M-Theory badges. M-theory also features 17-inch Caldina alloy wheels with P215/50R17 tires, four wheel disc brakes, logo floor mats, and an individually numbered limited edition plaque. The M-Theory will also feature enhanced vehicle handling thanks to a standard sport tuned suspension and sport strut tower brace will also enhance vehicle handling.

Only 2,500 units of the special edition Matrix M-Theory will be built. The Matrix M-Theory special edition package will carry a base manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $1,500.

In addition to the M-Theory, the 2007 Matrix is available in two model grades: Standard and XR, which are carryover for the 2007 model year. Matrix MSRPs remain unchanged. The base MSRP for the Matrix starts at $15,260 for the Matrix Standard with a five-speed manual transmission to $17,570 for the XR with four-speed automatic transmission.

The Matrix with all-wheel drive and Matrix XRS models have been discontinued for 2007.

So basically its like a Corolla S... except a Matrix. They should at least add a performance engine into it.

Have they always call it the Corolla Matrix? I always thought it was just Matrix and not labeled as part of the Corolla line.

My slight interest in the matrix is completely dead now. Why'd they have to kill the 2ZZ matrix?

With the next version of the Corolla coming out, I'm sure there will be a next version of the Matrix, which was really nothing more than a Corolla wagon.

The higher output engine did not meet new emmissions regs, and did not warrant a redesign for a short model year. the AWD was a slow seller, and was dropped to keep costs low for the final year before a major redesign.

I also wonder what way the Toyota GM alliance will go. GM has stated that Pontiac will go all RWD. That would mean that a shared small car would go to chevy or Saturn or perhaps Suzuki
