Plymouth [2] - X2S

The styling hits you first. Visually, the X2S is a knockout. But beneath its sleek skin, this sporty new car is engineerined to be high quality and high performance.

The creators of Plymouth X2S reached into the future, striving for significant advances in automotive design. X2S is the reward of their labors.

Windswept aerodynamic styling and hidden headlights allow Plymouth X2S to slide through oncoming air quietly and efficiently, with an expected drag coefficient of 0.30. The unique X2S shape uses the onrushing wind to hold the car to the road.

X2S is an automobile that inspired driver confidence. A combination of highly refined, interdependent engineering features makes this futuristic Plymouth a pure joy to control.

Front-wheel drive, four-wheel independent suspension, and power-assisted quick-ratio power steering achieve a unique combination of stability and maneuverability. Power-assisted four-wheel drive disc brakes confer extraordinarily controlled deceleration.

It is a car you drive by instinct, knowing that X2S obeys the driver's most subtle command.

The driving force inside Plymouth X2S is the sophisticated fury of a turbo-charged and intercooled 16-valve DOHC MPI 2.0-liter Mitsubishi-built engine. It develops 199 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 189 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm.

This engine's leading-edge technology empowers Plymouth X2S with enviable performance. Considering nearly 200 horsepower and a curb weight of just 2,550 lbs, a zero-to-60 mph line of seven seconds and 140-mph top speed are expected.

A feeling, a special understanding of the road is subtly transmitted into your body through the ergonomically correct lumbar support bucket seats. Rich digital stereo sound envelops you.

The cockpit-style instrument panel gauges are positioned within optimal sightlines. Controls are placed to fall easily beneath your hands. This is a car designed as a mechanical extension of the driver's body. Man and machine, made one.
