It's big enough for almost anything you need to do but small enough to be convenient and economical.
My vehicle is great for what I do. I enjoy the outdoors, have a child, and a dog, so the Matrix fits our needs perfectly. It's cargo area is large enough for sports or camping equipment but it's small enough to park in the garage and it's still economical. It's in great condition, I don't owe any money on it, and the insurance payment is low because it's an older car.
