Matrix XRS are 170hp on a 2800lb FWD setup, pretty snappy really. The rest were 123hp, ugh. This is for the first-gen that ended with the '06 model year. No idea on the newer ones.

The new Matrix's look 1000% better than the older ones. I think they look alright. The sure look a hell of a lot better than the Caliber.

They don't all come in awd, some of them are, but I think most people get fwd. Also, they are not that fast, the new ones arent either. Go check the times on them and see for yourself.

The older XRS models will slightly edge any stock US Focus outside of the SVT with equal driver/transmission. 0-60 was mid-7s, quarter in very high 14s, or very low 15s. The new one with the heavier, larger, lower-output motor appears to be a lot slower. Just saw a review of the '09 XRS, and it did 0-60 in 7.9, 1/4 in 16.2. Bleh.

All XRS models are AWD as well as 6-speed, along with the Vibe GTs. When you put the car in reverse there is a back-up alarm inside the cabin so that you know your not in 1st gear lol, it gets me everytime :-)
