Known as the smallest and the least expensive car released by General Motors in the United States, the Chevrolet Metro is a subcompact belonging to the highest-rated cars in the EPA's fuel economy tests. It was unveiled in 1989 as a Geo Metro but since the brand has been discontinued, Metro's Geo nameplate was changed to Chevrolet. The base coupe was significantly redesigned in 1995 model year and the Metro sedan was introduced. Both body styles offer seats for four persons and come with enticing features such as folding rear seat, power steering, power locks and economical transportation. Inside the cabin, you'll find a rounded modular layout and a design that resulted to a clean, aerodynamic look.
Considered as the most economical car in Canada in terms of fuel consumption, the '95 Metro hatchback is driven by a 1.0-liter single overhead cam three-cylinder engine that cranks out 55 horsepower and 58 foot-pounds of torque. This engine is mated with a five-speed manual transmission and it has an estimated EPA rating of 36 city/ 42 highway. The sedan is motorized by a 1.3-liter single cam four that generates 70 horsepower and 7.4 ft.-lbs of torque and is offered with a choice between manual or automatic transmission.
The sedan came with 15-inch longer body equipped with child security door locks, full carpeting and fabric protector. Optional features range from anti-lock braking to air conditioning and different kinds of sound systems. To ensure safety, dual front airbags were offered and for your convenience, Metro's are packed with a glove box, an undersized cubby found in the center console and map pockets in the front doors.
