1995 Buick Skylark Review

An all-around solid choice.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 1995 Buick Skylark is a passenger car manufactured by General Motors. It was introduced in 1953 but did not have a continuous production run. The car was first launched as the Roadmaster Skylark to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Buick. Before this, the name was used for a brief period by a company called Hupp. It's part of the seventh production run, which began in 1992. This particular generation marked a radical shift in the otherwise boxlike styling over the decades.

The Range

Body Styles: coupe, sedan
Engines: 2.3-liter I-4, 3.1-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Buick Skylark Custom, Buick Skylark Gran Sport

What's New

The 1995 Buick Skylark gets a revised rear suspension, and this year marks the introduction of the new Quad 4 straight-four engine as a standard. The Gran Sport model, however, gets a standard 3.1-liter V-6.

Exterior

The 1995 Buick Skylark continues with its wedge-shaped exterior styling that was introduced in 1992 and marked a shift from the boxy styling of the previous generations. It has a sharply-pointed grille, which is reminiscent of the 1940. The aerodynamic shape gives it a drag coefficient of 0.319, which is much lower than the drag coefficient of 0.374 of the previous generation. It has a wheelbase of 103.4 inches and a total length of 189.1 inches. The width is 68.7 inches, and its height is 53.3 inches.

Interior

The 1995 Buick Skylark offers a decent amount of space for four adults. Legroom and headroom are quite good up front, and adequate enough for two adults at the rear. However, there is not enough legroom at the rear to really stretch out and sit, and entry and exit to the rear seat is difficult. Another problem is the analog gauges, which are spread so far apart from each other that the ones at the extreme ends get slightly obstructed by the steering wheel. Nevertheless, the gauges are clearly marked. All models offer an ample amount of cargo space in the trunk, which also has a bumper-level lift-over for added convenience. However, the trunk lid itself is too small for loading large items with ease.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Buick Skylark is a 2.3-liter, straight-four engine that delivers 150 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. The Gran Sport gets a different base engine, which is a 3.1-liter V-6 that offers 155 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the previous base engines that were used for the seventh generation, the Quad 4 engine is smooth and quiet. This particular engine is also quite peppy and provides a decent amount of power. The V-6 is more responsive to throttling at any speed, providing brisk power when needed. However, the new straight-four engine shows that the V-6 is not necessary for ensuring a comfortable ride.

Safety

The 1995 Buick Skylark got a five-star rating for driver safety and a four-star rating for passenger safety during frontal impact tests conducted by the NHTSA.

EPA Fuel Economy

Buick Skylark: 21/29 mpg city/highway
