Dodge Omni (1978-1990)
The Dodge Omni (and Plymouth Horizon) was a five-door hatchback for the North American market. It was designed together with the Chrysler-Simca (later Talbot) Horizon. For the American market the front suspension was changed from torsion bar to McPherson struts. The Dodge and Plymouth models were fitted with a Volkswagen 1700 cc engine, suitably modified by Chrysler, as the European Simca engines were deemed too puny.
