Derived from the Toyota Corolla, the Geo Prizm was an interesting vehicle that allowed General Motors to better compete in the economy car segment. Now, a clean, second-generation 1997 Geo Prizm was recently posted for sale.
Listed for $5,995 at a used vehicle dealership in Georgia, this Prizm appears to be in great condition considering its age and intended use. A clean Carfax report shows a history of two owners, plenty of service records, no reported accidents or damage, and just over 81,000 miles on the odometer.
It’s worth noting that the asking price on this Prizm recently received a $1,000 price drop.
Starting with the exterior, we find a white paint job and color-matched front and rear bumpers. Wheel covers compliment the front and rear all-season tires, while black body-side moldings deliver a sharp contrast against the paint color. In addition, tinted glass can be found throughout.
Although designated as an economy vehicle, this 1997 Prizm features a few notable creature comforts, including air conditioning, a rear window defogger, carpet floor mats, intermittent variable windshield wipers, cloth seats and an AM/FM/CD player.
Under the hood, the specifications are as one may expect. That’s to say, power is provided by a naturally aspirated 1.6L I4 gasoline engine that musters 100 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. Output is delivered to the front wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission.
Funny enough, if you’re looking for a Geo Prizm and this unit just doesn’t cut it, this used car dealership actually has a second Prizm available for purchase for $1,000 cheaper. Check it out here.
