The Hyundai Matrix (sold in South Korea and Taiwan as the Lavita and in Australia as the Elantra Lavita) is a MPV sold by the Hyundai Motor Company. The vehicle was designed by the Italian car designer company Pininfarina. Even though the car is likely to be used as a leisure activity vehicle or a mini MPV rather than an MPV, Hyundai state it is a MPV based on the tall roofline.
The Matrix is a five-seater hatchback and is available in 1.5, 1.6 and 1.8-litre petrol engines. The 1.8 has a top speed of 114mph (183km/ h) and a 0-60 mph time of 11.3 seconds. In Europe there are versions also available with turbo diesel engines.
