The 1995 Eagle Vision first rolled-out in 1993 and was developed to compete against rivals like Saturn as part of Chrysler’s LH line. In this regard, it shares many design elements with Chrysler’s Concorde, LHS, New Yorker, and Dodge Intrepid. Ironically, it bears some relation to the one-off Lamborghini Portofino in that both cars are based on the same design made by Kevin Verduyn during the late 1980s. It's a ""cab forward"" midsized four-door sedan with a distinct European flair that comes in two variations: the base ESi and the sport-themed TSi.
The 1995 Eagle Vision represents a bold departure compared with earlier Chrysler offerings, such as the Eagle Premier, which it effectively replaced. Several years of research and design culminated in the shapely, forward-thinking sedan that received critical and consumer acclaim for reliability and handling. Models arriving in 1995 saw only minor updates to the overall design. It would be discontinued two years later due to lagging sales with the demise of the entire Eagle marque following-suit shortly thereafter.

For 1995, Eagle Vision receives a minor update. The most notable change to the standard configuration is an added cassette player to the existing AM/FM stereo system. Power windows and mirrors are also added, and the 3.5-liter engine from the TSi becomes an available option to ESi.
The 1995 Eagle Vision is very similar in appearance to its cousin, the Chrysler Concorde. Nevertheless, differences do emerge in small details such as the front grille and taillights. The ESi shipped from the factory with 15-inch tires, while the TSi was issued 16-inch tires and features fog lights in its standard specification. Furthermore, consumers can opt for alloy wheels that come as an option for the TSi.
The 1995 Eagle Vision ESi features standard equipment such as cloth seating, tilt steering wheel, air-conditioning, and AM/FM/Cassette, power windows, locks, and exterior mirrors. It also carries optional features such as power driver’s seat, keyless entry, power moon roof, CD player, and a premium Infinity audio system. The TSi adds cruise control, power driver’s seat, automatic climate control, and leather steering wheel covering as standard. Leather seating is available to this model only.
Performance & Handling
The 1995 Eagle Vision ESi gets a 3.3-liter engine that is widely considered to be underpowered for its class. Engineers at Chrysler managed to add eight horsepower in performance boost beginning in 1994. The 3.5-liter engine of the TSi adds substantially more raw power for acceleration, in addition to a four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS). It also has as an option of a Performance suspension package to complement its higher engine-output. Shared design elements from the Portofino lend to the low-drag coefficient.
The 1995 Eagle Vision offers front driver and passenger side airbags. The Chrysler LH platform employed in it was designed with rigidity in mind. The longitudinally-mounting system for the engine and transaxle provide exceptional body-stiffness. It features knee-bolsters to further protect front occupants in the event of a collision, while a child seat with booster capabilities is an available option.
