2002 CHEVROLET PRIZM: WELL EQUIPPED IMPORT FIGHTER2002 was the final model year for Chevrolet Prizm
Chevrolet Prizm, long known as a well-equipped compact sedan for customers who typically consider import vehicles, enters its final model year in 2002.
'Prizm is often the choice of discriminating, college-educated buyers, particularly because it offers high quality, reliability and safety,' said Margaret Brooks, Prizm brand manager. 'Add comfort and convenience to the mix, and you have the perfect compact package for many buyers.'Lineup and equipment
The Prizm Sedan and uplevel Prizm LSi Sedan comprise the lineup. Standard features include a 1.8-liter SFI 125-horsepower engine, air conditioning, rear-floor heater ducts, trip-odometer, AM/FM stereo radio and intermittent windshield wipers. The vehicle features a choice of three transmissions: a five-speed manual, three-speed automatic and four-speed automatic with overdrive. Combined with the Prizm's agile four-wheel independent suspension, these powertrain choices provide a pleasing ride in town and on the highway — or even on twisty mountain roads.
The well-equipped LSi includes remote keyless entry, an electric rear-window defogger, power door locks, a 60/40 split rear seat with pass-through feature, tilt steering wheel, tachometer, power windows, AM/FM stereo with cassette, power-operated outside rear view mirrors and special full wheel covers.
Prizm Optionalions include 14-inch alloy wheels, electric-sliding sunroof and a CD-equipped AM/FM stereo.
The powerful 1.8-liter, 125-hp sequentially-fuel injected aluminum engine, featured on both Prizm models, has dual-overhead camshafts, a near-maintenance-free direct ignition system, a single serpentine accessory drive system for added smoothness, and a torque-axis engine mounting system that helps soak up vibration and noise.Safety and security features
Family-oriented buyers will appreciate Prizm's attention to safety. Standard safety equipment includes driver and front passenger air bags, lower anchors for child restraint seats and an inside trunk release handle. Optional safety equipment includes side-impact air bags for driver and front passenger as well as four-wheel antilock brakes.
Discriminating buyers who want a well-equipped, reliable compact sedan will find it in the 2002 Chevrolet Prizm.Source - Chevrolet
