Engine capacities depended upon the markets they were intended for. Cars for the American market were fitted with Astron engines. The other markets got cars fitted with the smaller Sirius engines. However, both engines generated the same amount of horse power.
Seat belts of these cars were located on the doors for both driver and the front passenger. They had automatic climate control which was not yet there with many other cars at the time it was made available. Though Starion was not very good off road, it was a sports car that won many sporting events. Later, a station wagon with all wheel drive feature was also produced. In 1989 its production run ended though it was such a successful car.
