The wheelbase measured 94.5 inches and the suspension consisted of a MacPherson strut setup in the front with a twist-beam rear setup.

The U.S. version of the 1982 Gold was powered by an overhead-cam four-cylinder engine displacing 105 cubic-inches and offering 74 horsepower. Transmission options included a four-speed automatic, or a four- or five-speed automatic. Pricing began at $8,400 for the 2-door sedan and rose to $8,600 for the four-door bodystyle. Minimal changes occurred in 1982 and standard equipment included power brakes, dual remote mirrors, intermittent wipers, tinted glass, padded steering wheel, woodgrain instrument panel, AM/FM stereo, and floor console.
