I was going to work the other day and I noticed a matrix change lanes behind me, so I was like ok I'll just speed up. I was doing 80, and I figured that it was just a matrix so I didnt need to bother downshifting, so I just stepped on the gas. Next thing I know he's next to me, then in front of me, and I'm just like "what the hell?", then I hit 108 and the governer kicked in. I noticed the matrix said XR (I think) and AWD on the back. I never knew this matrix existed. Anyone know anything about it?

16-valve VVT-i
4-cylinder
130 hp @ 6,000 rpm
125 lb.-ft. @ 4,200 rpm

and he was 4WD .... it means he was an heavy-weight....maybe he was supercharged [;)] [hihi]

Matrixes have some potential. I think the Focus looks like a mini minivan. I also think it was an XRS. Turd engines & awd aren't very impressive at highway speeds.

Assuming you have a PZEV, The XRS is the only one that *should* beat you, as the XR is sufficiently watered down.

The AWD is optional on the XR model only, which has the Corrola engine, 130hp. The XRS is strictly FWD, 180 hp.

I like the looks of the matrix, drove one this summer.If I remeber right, standard was 130 h.p. and the S was 180, so an S might take you, though the awd will slow him down....TRY HARDER!!! next time..lol.I looked at buying one, about 200lbs heavier than my focus I think...I also think the mazda 3 is pretty trick ,too

Well, he partly beat me cause I ran into my governer. And I'm positive it said AWD on the back, cause I didnt know they made an all wheel drive matrix. Oh well, cant win em all.
