rear suspension delivers an excellent balance of ride and handling and is built on an isolated subframe to reduce interior vibration and harshness.  The Sport-tuned suspension is standard on SES Coupe and

A Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) is certified to emit no more than 6.5 pounds of hydrocarbon pollutants over 120,000 miles of driving. By comparison, a vehicle certified to the California Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV II) or Federal Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions standard emits about 29 pounds over 120,000 miles. 
Under today’s criteria, vehicles that achieve a PZEV rating earn 9.5 on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Vehicle Guides. Only a zero emissions vehicle (battery electric or fuel cell) receives a better score.(1)  To achieve a PZEV rating, a vehicle must meet certain criteria, including:  Meet the super ultra-low emissions vehicle (SULEV) standard for tailpipe pollution.  This Demonstrates the zero fuel-based evaporative emissions and that manufacturer’s warranty must ensure that emissions-related components are covered for 15 years/150,000 miles.
