The Pontiac Aztek is a mid-size crossover that was marketed by Pontiac from the 2001 model year to the 2005 model year along with its corporate cousin, the Buick Rendezvous.

While a commercial failure that is commonly cited as one of the worst automobiles ever produced, the Aztek has seen a resurgence in popularity and public interest in the late 2000s and early 2010s thanks to its association with Breaking Bad as the car driven by main protagonist Walter White.

The Subaru Impreza is a compact automobile that has been manufactured since 1992 by Subaru. Subaru introduced the Impreza as a replacement for the Leone, with the Leone’s EA series engines replaced by the newer EJ series versions.

Now in its fourth generation, Subaru has offered four-door sedan and five-door hatchback body variants since 1992; the firm also offered a coupe from 1995 until 2000. Mainstream versions have received naturally aspirated “boxer” flat-four engines ranging from 1.5- to 2.5-liters, with the performance-oriented Impreza WRX and WRX STI models uprated with the addition of turbochargers. Since the third generation series, some markets have adopted the abbreviated Subaru WRX and WRX STi name for these high-performance variants.

The Saab 900 is a compact luxury automobile that was produced by Saab Automobile from 1978 until 1998 in two generations. The first generation from 1978 to 1993 is known as the “classic”; the generation from 1994 to 1998 is known as the “new generation” (see below).

The “classic” Saab 900 was based on the Saab 99 chassis, though with a longer front end to meet U.S. frontal crash regulations. The 900 was produced in 2- and 4-door sedan, and 3- and 5-door hatchback configurations; in addition, from 1986, a cabriolet (convertible) model was produced. There were single- and twin-carburetor, fuel-injection, and turbocharged engines, including both Full-Pressure Turbo (FPT), and, in European models during the early 1990s, Low-Pressure Turbos (LPT).

The Nissan Murano is a mid-size crossover SUV first introduced by Nissan in December 2002 and sold as a 2003 model. Nissan ventilated the Murano as its first crossover SUV for the United States and Canada. Initially designed at Nissan America in La Jolla, California, the first generation Murano was based on the Nissan FF-L platform first used by the third generation Altima.[2] The European version of the Murano began sales in 2004 and is available only in one version.[3]

The Murano was Nissan’s only crossover SUV in the U.S. until September 2007 when the new 2008 Nissan Rogue went on sale. In Canada the X-Trail had been on sale as Nissan’s second car-based SUV since 2004 as a 2005 model; it was replaced by the new 2008 Nissan Rogue in late 2007. The Murano is sized between the Xterra and the Pathfinder, but is priced slightly higher than the Nissan Pathfinder.

The Murano was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2003. It was also named the best premium mid-size SUV by AutoPacific.

The name Murano comes from a region of Venice, Italy which is known for the hand blown glass produced there.

The Hyundai Elantra (Korean: 현대 엘란트라), or Hyundai Avante (현대 아반떼) in South Korea, is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai, from 1990 to present, now in its fifth generation.

The Elantra was formerly marketed as the Lantra in Australia and some European markets. In Australia, this was due to the similarly named Mitsubishi Magna Elante model.[1] This gave rise to disagreement from other motor manufacturers, and the name was standardized as “Elantra” worldwide in 2001 (with the exception being Korea; Malaysia now uses the “Elantra” name, forsaking the “Avante” of old[2]).
