The 1995 Geo Prizm remains one of the most pragmatic cars on the market. While it lacks anything particularly spectacular, it provides a well-built, reliable vehicle that can get drivers from point A to point B for a very modest price. The performance seems unremarkable, but also has no major flaws or issues. It does not have much in the way of standard features, but a couple optional features a make it fairly comfortable to drive.
The lack of anything particularly unique often causes potential buyers to pass it over. Drivers who give it a chance find a good long-term value with the Geo Prizm. High reliability and excellent fuel economy also make operating a Prizm an economic alternative to even some compact vehicles.

The 1995 Geo Prizm classifies as a sedan that measures in at a fairly petite 173 inches. While it does not have any distinct styling, it shows off an appealing, curved aesthetic that looks more attractive than some of its competition. Alloy wheels remain available as an option, along with a power sunroof and power mirrors.
The Geo Prizm has a moderate interior size. It does not offer quite as much room as the Chevrolet Cavalier, but it seem respectable. The 2003 Geo Prizm does not have any notable standard features, but air-conditioning, an AM/FM radio, a cassette player, a CD player, cruise control, power locks, and power windows comprise the list of optional features. The Prizm LSi also offers the option of leather seating.
Performance & Handling
The 2003 Geo Prizm offers mediocre performance, acceleration, and handling. Overall, this does not look unusual in the price range, but drivers find nothing particularly good or bad about how the Prizm functions. The only notable aspect of the Prizm concerns its high reliability, which makes it likely to run for a good long while.
The 1995 Geo Prizm comes equipped with dual front airbags. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes remain available as an optional feature.
