Hyundai Matrix is designed on the basis of the first wagon Lantra III by Hyundai Motor Company. However, the body of the model has undergone pretty strong changes. Hyundai Matrix is considered as the second minivan of the company (the first was Trajet) and first compact van, in particular. The first debut was held in Asia under the name of Hyundai Lavita and then in Europe in 2001 but with the name of Hyundai Matrix. The modification presented for European market was powered by more powerful engine than Hyundai Lavita's volume of 1.5-liter capacity of 100 HP.

Competitive advantage of Hyundai Matrix could be good maneuverability in the city with small dimensions (height - 1635 mm, length - 4025 mm) but the model surprises passengers with its spacious interior.
