The transverse straight-six engine is an automotive oddity, installed in Volvo S80s and Suzuki Veronas last decade. While smooth, this engine generated a mere 155 horsepower.
The interior was on the generic side, but this car listed at just $17,199 (about $23,500 in 2018 dollars). Compare that to the $24,999 '04 Mitsubishi Diamante, another car that few bought (but that had 50 more horsepower and much more luxury than then Verona).

Plenty of Americans have bought Suzuki cars over the last few decades, but most of those cars had Geo or Chevrolet badging.
This car was known as the Daewoo Magnus in its native South Korea.
More room than Camry!
