The ZX2's front fascia is given fog lamps for a more aggressive
look for 2003. Adding to the overall sleekness of the design
are color-coordinated polycarbonate front and rear bumpers
and solar-tinted, flush-mounted glass. The ZX2 is also equipped
with a rear spoiler and 15-inch wheels to give it that extra
mark of cool.
The ZX2 gets you from point to point time and time again
thanks to its quiet, industrious motor. All models are equipped
with a 4-cyl 2.0-liter engine that gives out 130 horsepower
at 5300 rpm and 135 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm. 5-speed
manual transmission and 4-speed automatic are both available.
With value and the environment in mind, both transmissions
provide good fuel ratings. 5-speed manuals get 26/33 mpg
(city/hwy), while 4-speed automatics get 25/33 mpg.
Safety and Security
Safety is designed right into the frame of the ZX2. It has
a "safety cell" construction, which manages impact
energy to help enhance occupant protection. Carefully engineered
crumple zones allow specific sections of the vehicle's body
to deform progressively, diverting energy away from the
occupants. Tough steel structural members and side-door
intrusion beams aide in side-impact protection. In addition,
antilock brakes are offered as one of the available add-on
