Fuel Efficiency

Toyota has manufactured models of Matrix for 11 years. They average 26.0 combined miles per gallon, with the latest 2013 Matrix below average at 24 combined MPG.

Government regulators estimate the fuel cost of the 2013 Matrix to be $1,600 per year. This estimate is based on 15,000 miles driven, 55% city driving and 45% highway driving, and regular gasoline.

Compared to other vehicles, you spend $750 more over 5 years compared to an average vehicle.

The Matrix consumes about 14 barrels of petroleum per year, according to the standard estimate of 15,000 miles driven. Most of the world's petroleum comes from countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and Iraq.

The Matrix emits 370 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 5,550,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 264 trees would offset these emissions. The Matrix does not have start-stop technology.
