This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:
The Mazda Demio may not be a sexy looking coupe, but it's still one of the most popular cars in the Mazda range. Tall, boxy looks ensure it stands out from the crowd, while design details like the built-in plastic bull bar add to its wacky appeal. It looks unconventional then, but when it comes to the engine, things get rather more ordinary. There's a choice of two units, a 1.3-litre, four-cylinder, single overhead cam or a 1.5-litre version of the same engine. The former produces 83BHP at 6,000rpm, while the latter a moderately more impressive 100BHP, also at 6,000rpm. Both cars do their most impressive work at the top end of the rev range. As you might expect performance is less than scintillating. The smaller engined car manages the 0-60mph sprint in just over 14 seconds before maxing out at just under 100mph. The 1.5-litre car meanwhile, only marginally betters those figures. With either engine there's a choice of a five-speed manual gearbox or a three-speed automatic. The suspension set up on the Demio is not exactly ideal for track work. MacPherson struts on the front are backed up by torsion beams on the rear, its softly sprung though and that, plus its high-rise body, means there's plenty of body roll when it comes to a corner. Its front wheel drive set up also adds to the tendency to understeer. The braking system on the Demio is a standard discs on the front and shoes on the back set up, but with the kind of performance the Demio has to offer, it's more than enough. The top model GL-X edition does at least have the addition of ABS brakes as standard.
