What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2006 Toyota Matrix

2006 Toyota Matrix Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 4dr Hatch 118-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
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. see full Toyota Matrix review

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. see full Toyota Matrix review
