Toyota had a lot of news late yesterday, all surrounding the Corolla Matrix sports wagon. The most notable tidbit was the introduction of the Special Edition Matrix M-Theory.
Limited to only 2,500 units, the M-Theory will feature an upgraded sport suspension, a sport strut tower brace, four wheel disc brakes, and 17-inch Caldina alloy wheels wrapped in P215/50/R17 rubber. Aeshetically, the M-Theory Matrix gets treated to unique Speedway Blue paint, a rear deck lid spoiler, a large chrome exhaust tip, and an individually numbered limited edition plaque. This package will cost you a $1,500 premium.
While the MSRP on the 2007 Matrix Standard and XR remain the same as the 2006 models — the base Matrix with manual transmission starts at $15,260; the XR with an automatic gearbox starts at $17,570 — what’s interesting is that Toyota is discontinuing the XRS and all-wheel-drive models altogether.
