The 1995 Plymouth Neon has a sleek and aerodynamic appeal, which is similar to that of Japanese and European compact cars. It has a wheelbase of 104 inches, a length of 171.8 inches, width of 67.5 inches, and a height of 54.9 inches.
The 1995 Plymouth Neon has a spacious interior with enough headroom and legroom for four tall adults without squeezing inside. In fact, the huge interior comes as quite a surprise when consumers look at it from the outside. Visibility is very good from the front and sides. However, the presence of a high parcel shelf at the rear makes the rear view a bit obstructed. The trunk space is decent with the floor at the bumper level. The rear seatback can be split-folded in order to expand the cargo space further.
The 1995 Plymouth Neon is fitted with a standard 2.0-liter, single-overhead cam, four-cylinder engine that delivers 132 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque. The Sport model gets the same four-cylinder engine except with a dual-overhead cam that boosts the power output to 150 horsepower and torque to 131 lb-ft. It had a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, but a three-speed automatic was available as an option. Despite the small size, the single-overhead straight-four engine is able to deliver surprisingly swift acceleration, taking the car from standstill to 60 mph in a respectable 8.9 seconds. However, the engine is very noisy when idle and when accelerated. The engine with the dual-overhead cam is clearly more powerful than the base engine, but the difference is not big enough to make this engine a must-have. The three-speed automatic transmission that comes as an option is not very refined. Irrespective of the engine used, an automatic tends to shift gears abruptly. Nevertheless, the ride quality is quite impressive for a subcompact car and can be compared to the ride offered by certain bigger cars. The suspension takes on normal bumps and holes very well, and handling is similar to that of a sports car.
The 1995 Plymouth Neon is a four-door sedan and two-door coupe manufactured by Chrysler. It replaced the Plymouth Sundance, and the two-door coupe replaced the Plymouth Laser.
