The Toyota Matrix, the sporty five-door vehicle that helped redefine the concept of a crossover utility vehicle, has been redesigned for the 2009 model year to offer performance that matters for driver enjoyment.

Toyota have unveiled their second-generation Corolla Matrix hatch at the 2007 SEMA Show earlier today, redefining what Toyota call the concept of a 'crossover utility vehicle' for the 2009 model year. The Matrix blends the practicality of a compact SUV, the stylish design of a performance hatchback and the affordability of a subcompact sedan to create a two-door sports car, but in five-door form.
