This month sees a new version of a family favourite that’s guaranteed to equal the standards set by the original … the special edition Hyundai Matrix SE.
Unlike many sequels, the Matrix SE is one drivers and passengers will want to see again and again, and is suitable for the whole family.
The Matrix SE features approximately £1,500 worth of new equipment as standard. Prices are: Matrix 1.6 SE manual: £11,995; Matrix 1.6 SE automatic: £12,845. If that wasn’t enough, the Matrix SE comes with three years free servicing and £1,000 off these prices until the end of September!
The SE features all the standard equipment of the 1.6 GSI, plus the following additions: the Hyundai DVD multimedia system (with headrest mounted screens), privacy glass, rear spoiler with integral brake lamp, and reversing sensors.
Power is from a four cylinder 1,599cc petrol engine producing 101bhp@5800rpm, and ample torque when needed; with a figure of 141Nm/104 lbs ft @ 4500rpm.
With the SE, the Matrix is also available in black for the first time, as well as metallic silver.
Standard features across the Matrix range, including the SE, include air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, driver/passenger and side airbags, three 3-point rear seat belts, RDS radio/CD player, electric front and rear windows, alloy wheels and anti-lock brakes.
Like all models in the Hyundai range, the Matrix SE come with the company’s fully transferable five year unlimited mileage warranty.Published 18 September 2004
