This 1990 Geo Metro LSi is a pretty uncommon sight. Throughout the years, this car was under many different nameplates including the Suzuki Swift, Suzuki Cultus, Geo Metro, Chevrolet Sprint, & Pontiac Firefly. One thing’s for sure, this is definitely an econobox! Geo was GM CAMI’s subcompact economy car brand using the Chevrolet division. The purpose of the Geo Metro was to be a simple, fuel efficient, and economical little commuter, being extremely good on gasoline, (Not sure what the mpg was for this model year, but I do know that the manual gets better mileage) which came from an engine that produced only one liter, (1.0 L 3 Cylinder) so this car obviously isn’t built for speed. The Metro could be bought as a 3 door hatchback, 5 door hatchback, 4 door sedan, and a 2 door convertible. This particular one just so happens to be a a 5 door hatchback, not as common as the 3 door hatchback or sedan. As the subcompacts from Geo/Suzuki progressed on, sales were declining due to the decreasing popularity of smaller vehicles, and the Metro was eventually replaced by a Daewoo based Chevrolet Aveo in 2004.
As styling goes, not much is to say about this econobox. This one is in a sky blue color and sure does look more Japanese than American.
Not many Geos are still on today’s roads, most being in junkyards since those kinds of cars have a short lifespan, so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to take pictures of this one. #curbsidecuriosities
