1999 Cavalier New Car Test Drive
Chevrolet's Cavalier is the best-selling small car in an extremely competitive market of compacts. First offered in 1997, the Rally Sport sits in the middle of the Cavalier spectrum, although there is nothing middling about this car. Its appeal is its appearance and performance for the price.
The Rally Sport model delivers good handling and peppy acceleration at a reasonable price of $13,641. The Cavalier Rally Sport comes with a 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engine that revs well and is always at the ready. ABS and power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering come standard.
There are a lot of choices in the compact class. Choosing what's best depends on the buyer's needs and budget. What the Cavalier Rally Sport buyer gets is an engaging driving experience as well as a car that has a lot of sass due to body-colored front and rear fascias, wheel covers and a rear spoiler, all of which enhance the fastback body style.
