Externally the cars feature exposed wheel bolts, a reflective panel between the rear light clusters and engine size badging (except on 2.0i models). All coupe models except the 2.0i now have alloy wheels and spoilers as standard.
All models have as standard, ABS brakes, dual airbags, electric windows and mirrors (also heated), front seatbelt tensioners, triple three-point rear belts, interior light delay and electrically adjustable headlamps with wash/wipe. All three door coupe models (except the 2.0i) have alloy wheels, rear and front spoilers, front foglamps, leather covered steering wheel and gear knob.
A new 900XS 2.3i five door model is introduced following high demand for the 2.0i version launched two years ago. With air conditioning and alloy wheels the car is set to be a star of the range. At the top of the list, all SE models get leather seats and wood fascias as standard. Automatic transmission becomes standard for the 900SE 2.5 V6 five door and the coupe version is dropped. The useful life of the brake pads is extended by about 15% through the use of a new friction material.
