What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota Matrix

Toyota Matrix Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Hatch 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
The matrix was listed as getting 37MPG. this ofcourse is hooey. I M very happy though with getting 31Mpg in it. I have been tracking it since i bought the car over a year ago and my mileage varies between 29 and 32, i drive out of town to work wiht a 15 minute commute and the majority of it never goes below 60km/hr. One thing i did notice is that use on the highway actually decreases the mileage. I had to go to Ottawa last fall, the weather was great, no norticable wind, i drove between 110 and 120km/hr etc and my mileage dropped to 27mpg for the trip. This engine is not that big so i think its not that good at those speeds simply because the engine size. in day to day driving its great though.

should be good

We purchased our Matrix NEW June of 2006, we now (21 Dec 2012) have 82,000 miles and I have monitored the mileage since we purchased the car. We get 24 in city driving and the VERY best we've got on a long freeway drive was 30mpg. Overall our mileage for the 80,000 miles is 27 which isn't great but is acceptable.

Front WD w/ 4sp auto, great highway mileage, but not near the advertised ratings

Great fuel economy for a 1.8L with 30 MPG on the highway and a 500km range.

Have never gotten less than 28 MPG, even when driving hard and in mountains. Usually get between 30 and 31 in the rolling country where I live. Have gotten over 34.

Very economical on gas.

With K&N air intake, we got 34mpg on freeway, and it adds 5hp to 10hp when you need to pass other cars.

good, but should be much better
2008 4dr Hatch 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
It only gets about 25mpg in a mixed cycle. Fit would get 28mpg or better in same driving.

expected the famous corolla frugality and efficiency - it has the same powertrain. we were totally disappointed. below freezing point, fuel consumption was scary: 17-20 l/100km. the best mileage we got was only 10 l/100 km.

Not even close to what is advertised
