Progressive safety-oriented styling.
The maximized wheelbase length, widened cabinand created long, flowing body lines.
Large C pillars significantly increase body rigidity foroptimum protection against collisions

Bold hood lines for a dynamic,muscular image Aerodynamictrunk lid minimizesair turbulence, increases safetyand fuel efficiency


Comfortbegins with generously sized interior dimensions: Front and back,there's extra headroom and legroom.
Safety cell: It protectsoccupants against collisions. Anti-submarining design of seats.

The seat cushions are angled at a2-degree gradient to prevent the occupant from sliding forward during a sudden stop.
Large side bolsters for torso support during hard cornering.


Among the E-TEC's(1.6 DOHC) many innovations is the variable geometry intake system(VGIS). VGIS automatically adjusts theengine air intake volume in accordance with the engine speed.This creates an optimum fuel-air mixture for higher efficiencyand power. VGIScontributes to an impressive 10% improvement in enginepower. E-TEC featuresnumerous silencing and anti-vibration features for smooth,quiet operation and a long service life.

stability during cornering. To soak up bumps and potholes, the
compound link rear suspension features special mini-block springs for astable, smooth ride.
A variable ratio power assist changes the boost levelaccording to driving speed


Occupant safety and crash survivability, frame rigidity and durability

The optimized design of the steel body shell :strength and weight reduction properties are ideally balanced.

Highly rigid frame provides a secure foundation for the suspension, enhancing the car's handling, steering and safety characteristics.
A triple-stage front bumper, a high-rigidity front member and T-type pillar to safeguard front seat occupants. In the rear,a three-stage rear bumper, side reinforced B pillar, side protection beams made of ultra-hightensile strengh steel, seat-cross members and extra-stiff rocker panels.

ABS improves brakingperformance under slippery road conditions or during panicstops. Dual Airbag
