In GTA IV, the [[Declasse]]-manufactured Premier is designed as a compact, four-door sedan that is based on a [[wp:Chevrolet Cobalt|Chevrolet Cobalt sedan]] with some details that resembles a [[wp:Chevrolet Aveo|2005-2011 T250 Chevrolet Aveo]] Sedan (obviously for its four-door design but also for its taillight design). The front of the car appears similar to [[wp:Chevrolet Cobalt|Chevrolet Cobalt sedan]] and the [[Pinnacle]]. The taillights appear similar to the 2005-2011 Chevrolet Aveo tailights, and are reminiscent of the taillights of the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fusion_(Americas) 2006-2009 Ford Fusion]. The Premier is powered by a 4.0L V6 engine with 5 gears and RWD.
+
In GTA IV and V, the [[Declasse]]-manufactured Premier is redesigned as a more modernized compact design, which is more suited for urban city streets. It is resembling a cross between [[wp:Chevrolet Cobalt|Chevrolet Cobalt]] and [[wp:Daewoo Lacetti|Daewoo Lacetti]] with some details that resembles a [[wp:Chevrolet Aveo|2005-2011 T250 Chevrolet Aveo]] sedan (obviously for its four-door design but also for its taillight design). The front of the car appears similar to [[wp:Chevrolet Cobalt|Chevrolet Cobalt sedan]] and the [[wp:Toyota Corolla (E120)|2001-2006 Toyota Corolla E120]]. With its enlarged grille located in the bumper region, the car bears an eerie resemblance to the [[wp:Chevrolet Impala|9th generation Chevrolet Impala]]. The taillights appear similar to the 2005-2011 Chevrolet Aveo tailights, and are reminiscent of the taillights of the [[wp:Ford Fusion (Americas)|2006-2009 Ford Fusion]].
   
The Premier appears in brief in the first [[GTA V]] trailer, with its design retained in the GTA IV rendition.
+
The description on ''[[Southernsanandreassuperautos.com]]'' mentions that it was popular in [[Canada]] but not the United States, likely as the compact car category makes up a bigger proportion of Canadian auto sales, and also as the Daewoo Lacetti was sold under a mainstream brand in Canada (as the Chevrolet Optra) as opposed to an obscure brand in the US (as the Suzuki Reno/Forenza).[http://www.autos.ca/used-car-reviews/used-vehicle-review-chevrolet-optra-2004-2007-2/]

The Premier in GTA IV has a 4.0L V6 coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a rear-wheel drive layout. The engine itself is responsive, propelling the vehicle off the line quickly, and giving it an outstanding top speed of 179 mph for an everyday sedan, but its gear ratio kills acceleration, since the gears are apparently very far apart. Handling is rather good for a car in the mid-sized 4 door class, keeping the Premier stable in most turns, though some oversteer can be felt. The suspension is rather soft however, giving way to body roll. Braking is adequate, though not as good as other sedans. Crash deformation is below average, with the Premier stalling after only a few collisions.

Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Declasse Premier is a compact 4-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. In GTA San Andreas, it is the civilian version of the Taxi and the Police Car, it also appears to be a "cousin" of the bulkier Elegant but the older brother of the Asea.

DesignEdit

3D Universe Edit

Premier-GTASA-front

Front quarter view. See rear quarter view here

The Premier strongly resembles a 1993-1994 Chevrolet Caprice, meaning it was likely a brand new model (the game is set in 1992, model years are generally one year ahead). the taillights, which are rectangular in shape as opposed to the Caprice's rounder taillights, might have some influence from 1992-1994 Ford Crown Victoria's. Its very boxy greenhouse looks closer to the Australian Holden VK Commodore but this may be to conserve graphics, this may in fact be the likely cause since a beta Police Car had a more detailed resemblance to a Caprice.[1]

The Premier is the base car for San Andreas' Taxi and the San Fierro Police Department and Los Santos Police Department's Police Cars.

HD Universe Edit

Premier-GTA4-front

A Premier in GTA IV (Rear quarter view).

In GTA IV and V, the Declasse-manufactured Premier is redesigned as a more modernized compact design, which is more suited for urban city streets. It is resembling a cross between Chevrolet Cobalt and Daewoo Lacetti with some details that resembles a 2005-2011 T250 Chevrolet Aveo sedan (obviously for its four-door design but also for its taillight design). The front of the car appears similar to Chevrolet Cobalt sedan and the 2001-2006 Toyota Corolla E120. With its enlarged grille located in the bumper region, the car bears an eerie resemblance to the 9th generation Chevrolet Impala. The taillights appear similar to the 2005-2011 Chevrolet Aveo tailights, and are reminiscent of the taillights of the 2006-2009 Ford Fusion.

The description on Southernsanandreassuperautos.com mentions that it was popular in Canada but not the United States, likely as the compact car category makes up a bigger proportion of Canadian auto sales, and also as the Daewoo Lacetti was sold under a mainstream brand in Canada (as the Chevrolet Optra) as opposed to an obscure brand in the US (as the Suzuki Reno/Forenza).[1]

Performance Edit

GTA San Andreas Edit

In GTA San Andreas, its acceleration, speed, and handling are all quite impressive, while the sturdiness and bulk of the chassis render the Premier capable of withstanding heavy damage, making this front-engine, rear-drive beast simply one of the best passenger vehicles in the game. The strong engine, responsive handling, and sturdy frame also make the Premier an ideal car for performing the PIT maneuver and for ramming other vehicles, hence its use as a police car. You also use the Police Car version, to learn how to do the PIT maneuver in Driving School. The only downside is its below average grip on road. The Premier is likely to be powered by a large V6. Premier's Drag Multiplier is 1.8, which is more aerodynamic than any other top end supercar, except for the Infernus where the Drag Multiplier is 1. It is officially the third most aerodynamic car in the game.

Police and taxi variants Edit

One interesting note is that performance aspects for the Premier come in in three variations in GTA San Andreas: mediocre, impressive, and fantastic. The version of the Premier with the worst performance is the Taxi, with modest acceleration and speed, and a heavy, lumbering frame. Next is the civilian version, with its outstanding performance and lighter chassis. Last is the Police version, which is the civilian Premier with a slightly more powerful engine and increased durability, and truly one of the best vehicles in the game.

Other variations include the fact that the Taxi is the only front-wheel drive version of the Premier, partly explaining its comparatively poor performance. Furthermore, the San Fierro police car enjoys improved suspension over that of the police car in Los Santos (most likely due to San Fierro's hilly streets).

GTA IV Edit

The Premier in GTA IV has a 4.0L V6 coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a rear-wheel drive layout. The engine itself is responsive, propelling the vehicle off the line quickly, and giving it an outstanding top speed of 179 mph for an everyday sedan, but its gear ratio kills acceleration, since the gears are apparently very far apart. Handling is rather good for a car in the compact 4 door class, keeping the Premier stable in most turns, though some oversteer can be felt. The suspension is rather soft however, giving way to body roll. Braking is adequate, though not as good as other, larger sedans. Crash deformation is below average, with the Premier stalling after only a few collisions. Overall, the Premier's performance traits are similar to that of its mid-sized counterpart, the Merit.

GTA V Edit

The Premier in GTA V seems to have had a power upgrade as the car has a lot more get up and go than the previous rendition. Handling has also been improved thanks to the more realistic FWD like its real-life counterpart. It is responsive and quick, and handles very well on tight corners, in par with the more expensive, larger sedans in the game.

It's possible that the HD Universe iteration is a reboot of the original Premier, in the way that some real life car manufacturers do.
  • In GTA V, the Premier has a transversely-mounted four-cylinder engine, as seen if the hood is open. This is similar to the Bobcat in GTA San Andreas
  • Despite different design, the Premier is comparable to the Dinka Blista in GTA V in terms of performance and handling characteristics. Also, both cars are in the compact class.
  • Coincidentally, the car shares its name with the Holden Premier, which is a four-door sedan produced in the 1970s to the late 1980s. It is obviously the luxury counterpart of the Holden Kingswood muscle car.
