(2005 model shown)
Available in compact sedan and station wagon versions, the Korean-built Forenza features revised front-end styling for 2006, along with new wheels and an updated interior. In addition, the Forenza now comes in a simplified trim level structure. With attractive exterior styling that's been penned by the Italian design firm Pininfarina, the Forenza's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 127-horsepower, and drives the front wheels via either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. It rides on MacPherson struts up front and a dual-link suspension in the rear, with variable-assist power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Front and front-side airbags are standard across the line. Air conditioning, a CD stereo and power locks, windows, and heated mirrors are standard on the base Forenza, with antilock brakes, cruise control, fog lamps, keyless entry, and a power sunroof available on the Premium version. No factory options are available.
