What is the advantage of purchasing the XR over the base Matrix?

Seems you can get most options with the base version.

same engine/chassis/suspension.

your interior cloth is different along with wheels, door handles, skirt package, and a bunch more.

you can get most of those options but i don't think you can upgrade the cloth and doorhandles which are unpainted plastic.

To make a base = to an Xr it basicly costs the same thing but with the XR you get a little better looking car due to the color coded body parts etc

The base looks ugly. Go with the XR because it has more options. Better yet, get the XRS! I got the XR im happy with my purchase because I dont really need to speed.

soulassssns,

The black door handles and mirrors don't look so bad on your grey matrix, but I don't like them on lighter color cars.

Anyone know of a good aftermarket source for door handles and mirrors?

Bah - I have a white base, and I like the way it looks, even down to the black mirrors :D

I'm not the biggest fan of the front and rear valances or the side rocker panels on the XR/XRS.
