The car's design, especially the front end and side profile is heavily influenced by that of the second generation Hyundai Coupe, which is also known as the Hyundai Tiburon/Tuscani. The rear configuration seems to be a cross between the Hyundai Coupe and the 2006 Volvo S60. The tail lights have a very big resemblance to the 2001 Dodge Neon.
The Prairie is a very good performer in the compact class. The engine seems to be a V6 like the original 2nd Generation Hyundai Tiburon. The acceleration takes a bit of time to get it to pick up its proper pace as it would generate wheel spin for a FWD, apparently wheelspin seems to be the only obstacle for the Prairie when driving, but can reach a relatively good top speed. Tests have been found that the Prairie generates unsual but staggering acceleration going downhill with very little chance of making the front lose control which gives the car a good advantage in a race and can make it compete with cars from other classes such as the Sultan, Penumbra, Dominator etc.
When cornering, the car is quite responsive, but not great. The car is capable of sharp cornering, though a bit of speed may be lost when doing so. Overall, it is a great car in its class and a good beginner car.
