2013 Passat SEL Premium Dieselgate
Did ANY naturally aspirated four banger sedan post better acceleration and braking numbers in a MW test.. evAr?
Those are still very good numbers.
The new GLI Jetta is a bit quicker and stop a bit shorter.. but it's turbo 2.0 and has much bigger tires.
(granted, it's also 400lbs heavier)
That Integra GRS sedan was a high water mark... but also a bit expensive- for a four banger front drive.
Those Stylus were rare and cool cars.
Did they ever sell them with the turbo here?
Still.. at that as tested price, a Mazda Protege LX or Escort GT/LX-E were probably batter values (similar performance and price with more room/refinement... tho the Stylus does come very well equipped at that price).
Isuzu was hit really hard by the early 90s pacific rim economic crash.
They dropped cars altogether and focused on commercial and SUVs.
Sad.. they made some interesting affordable cars.
