Front Seats Ranked 1990 Geo Prizm better.
"Theres more leg room which is a major factor for comfort for me, even with slightly less headroom, the front seats are better."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1990 Geo Prizm worse.
"It being a hatchback, its almost obvious that its gonna have more storage room than a sedan."

Vw Lovers Car — always been a dream car. worth it to own. lots of space inside and lots of fun. one of the classic cars that car lovers should own or at least drive. old enough to have its quirks so best for the tinkerer

Pros: fun to drive. easy to find parts/ work on. classic looks and style, comfortable and quick

Cons: bad for non enthusiasts to own

Pros: Drives like a dream

Cons: Not made any more
