In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the Merit, assuming a [[Declasse]] badge, is redesigned with a similar look to the [[wp:Chevrolet Impala|1999-2005 Chevrolet Impala]] LS with the back seemingly inspired by a fifth generation [[wp:Honda Accord|1995-1997 Honda Accord]]. The front bumper could be derived from a variety of cars, but the headlights and front grille are reminiscent of a [[wp:Pontiac GTO#Revival|fourth generation Pontiac GTO]], while the taillight looks similar to [[wp:BMW M3 E46|BMW E46 M3]]]. The wheels seem to be based on American Racing's line of chrome IROC-Z wheel replicas. Unlike the Chevrolet Impala, which is a FWD car, the GTA IV rendition of the Merit is a RWD car. The Merit is also the standard base for the [[Police Patrol]] and the [[Taxi]]. After collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]], he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Merit fetching $1,800.

==Performance==

===GTA San Andreas===
  +
This rendition of the Merit is designed as a balanced out performance, having average brake response and cornering, and good acceleration and speed. Coupled with its four-seat capacity, the Merit is practically a good choice for [[Drive-By Shooting|drive-bys]] and [[police]] evasion although crash deformation is not impressive. The Output HP for the Merit is 205HP. The Merit is a good starting car for new street racers as it can compare with cars like the [[Euros]] and [[Alpha]]. The top speed of the Merit is 212KPH.
   
== Performance ==
+
===GTA IV===
=== GTA San Andreas ===
+
The GTA IV rendition of the Merit is powered by a V6, mated to a 5 speed transmission in a RWD layout. [[File:Merit_badges.png|thumb]]Acceleration is good, but nothing special, and in line with the Merit's vanilla, everyday sedan image. Top speed is good: 205 mph(330 km/h). Braking is very good, and ABS is standard. The suspension is very firm, keeping the Merit flat through corners, and enabling it to corner effectively at speed. Accident deformation is acceptable, as the Merit will survive a few frontal impacts before being rendered unusable. The Merit seems suited towards any situation; it's capable of high speeds and it seems able to survive a serious car chase, making it a versatile addition to any parking space.

The Declasse Merit is a full-size four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.

DesignEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

The Merit is originally based on a fifth generation, 1992-1995 Mazda 929, one of a handful of vehicles in GTA San Andreas with a rounded body design.

GTA IV Edit

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Merit, assuming a Declasse badge, is redesigned with a similar look to the 1999-2005 Chevrolet Impala LS with the back seemingly inspired by a fifth generation 1995-1997 Honda Accord. The front bumper could be derived from a variety of cars, but the headlights and front grille are reminiscent of a fourth generation Pontiac GTO, while the taillight looks similar to BMW E46 M3]. The wheels seem to be based on American Racing's line of chrome IROC-Z wheel replicas. Unlike the Chevrolet Impala, which is a FWD car, the GTA IV rendition of the Merit is a RWD car. The Merit is also the standard base for the Police Patrol and the Taxi. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Merit fetching $1,800.

PerformanceEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

This rendition of the Merit is designed as a balanced out performance, having average brake response and cornering, and good acceleration and speed. Coupled with its four-seat capacity, the Merit is practically a good choice for drive-bys and police evasion although crash deformation is not impressive. The Output HP for the Merit is 205HP. The Merit is a good starting car for new street racers as it can compare with cars like the Euros and Alpha. The top speed of the Merit is 212KPH.

GTA IVEdit

The GTA IV rendition of the Merit is powered by a V6, mated to a 5 speed transmission in a RWD layout.
Merit badges
Acceleration is good, but nothing special, and in line with the Merit's vanilla, everyday sedan image. Top speed is good: 205 mph(330 km/h). Braking is very good, and ABS is standard. The suspension is very firm, keeping the Merit flat through corners, and enabling it to corner effectively at speed. Accident deformation is acceptable, as the Merit will survive a few frontal impacts before being rendered unusable. The Merit seems suited towards any situation; it's capable of high speeds and it seems able to survive a serious car chase, making it a versatile addition to any parking space.
