The Premier strongly resembles a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Caprice#Fourth_generation_.281991.E2.80.931996.29 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 [[wp:Ford Crown Victoria#1992–1994|1992-1994 Ford Crown Victoria]]'s. Its very boxy greenhouse looks closer to the [[Australia]]n [[wp:Holden VK Commodore|Holden VK Commodore]] but this may be to conserve graphics, this may in fact be the likely cause since a [[Beta Vehicles|beta]] [[Police Car]] had a more detailed resemblance to a Caprice.<ref name="San Fierro Police Car">[[:File:Police-GTASA-SFPD-beta-front.png|Image:Police-GTASA-SFPD-beta-front.png]]</ref>
 
The Premier strongly resembles a [[wp:Chevrolet Caprice#1991-1996|1991-1994 Chevrolet Caprice]], but it might be the 1991 or 1992 because they fit in with the game's setting; the taillights, which are rectangular in shape as opposed to the Caprice's rounder taillights, might have some influence from [[wp:Ford Crown Victoria#1992–1994|1992-1994 Ford Crown Victoria]]'s.

[[File:Premier-GTA4-front.jpg|thumb|254px|A Premier in GTA IV (<small>[[:Image:Premier-GTA4-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]</small>).]]
+
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]]. Its front and rear are also similar to the [[wikipedia:Citroën_C5#First_generation_.282001.E2.80.932007.29|2001-2007 Citroen C5]], As well as having some resemblence of the third generation [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Altima#Third_generation_.28L31.2C_2002.E2.80.932006.29 Nissan Altima], mainly with the chrome tail lights and muffled V6 sound, as was the case with the 2002-2006 Altima 3.5 SE.
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. The car also comes with a Hybrid option.
 
   
The Premier appears in brief in the first [[GTA V]] trailer, with its design retained in the GTA IV rendition.
+
The description on ''[[Southern San Andreas Super Autos]]'' 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/]. It is also mentioned that the Premier stopped production in 2010, after six years on the market.

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 Premier is likely to be powered by a large V8. 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.

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 ====
 
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 Department|San Fierro police]] [[Police Car|car]] enjoys improved suspension over that of the police car in Los Santos (most likely due to San Fierro's hilly streets).

===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
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.

The engine itself is responsive, propelling the vehicle off the line quickly, and giving it an outstanding top speed for an everyday sedan, but its gear ratio kills acceleration, since the gears are apparently very far apart, accurately representing the stereotypical of an automatic transmission in most compact cars. 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]].

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, making the Premier a rather fun and exciting car to drive while being in par with more expensive, larger sedans in the game. Braking is good, and ABS is standard on all models. The beefy engine and 5-speed transmission works hard in propelling the vehicle off the line quickly, resulting in a long burnout from the front wheels and yielding an impressive 0-60 time as well as a fantastic top speed for its class. For being a smaller compact sedan, the engine can be overpowering at some times, considering the Premier's lighter total weight and economy themed instead of performance themed drive train layout, but nevertheless the Premier is a good getaway vehicle in terms of performance. Damage deformation, however, is quite poor, as crashing headlong in the front even at moderate speeds can significantly degrade its overall performance, resulting it in becoming sluggish. Further collisions mean lower speeds which can make evading cops a challenge.

Latest revision as of 14:37, April 16, 2016


"In production from 2004 to 2010, the Declasse Premier never gained traction in the US market but was insanely popular in Canada. Why? Nobody knows... It's a national psyche that defies analysis."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Premier is a compact four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Declasse in the HD Universe.

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

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

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 UniverseEdit

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. Its front and rear are also similar to the 2001-2007 Citroen C5, As well as having some resemblence of the third generation Nissan Altima, mainly with the chrome tail lights and muffled V6 sound, as was the case with the 2002-2006 Altima 3.5 SE.

The description on Southern San Andreas Super Autos 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]. It is also mentioned that the Premier stopped production in 2010, after six years on the market.

Performance Edit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

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.

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).

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Premier in GTA IV has a 4.0L V8 engine 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 for an everyday sedan, but its gear ratio kills acceleration, since the gears are apparently very far apart, accurately representing the stereotypical of an automatic transmission in most compact cars. 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.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

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, making the Premier a rather fun and exciting car to drive while being in par with more expensive, larger sedans in the game. Braking is good, and ABS is standard on all models. The beefy engine and 5-speed transmission works hard in propelling the vehicle off the line quickly, resulting in a long burnout from the front wheels and yielding an impressive 0-60 time as well as a fantastic top speed for its class. For being a smaller compact sedan, the engine can be overpowering at some times, considering the Premier's lighter total weight and economy themed instead of performance themed drive train layout, but nevertheless the Premier is a good getaway vehicle in terms of performance. Damage deformation, however, is quite poor, as crashing headlong in the front even at moderate speeds can significantly degrade its overall performance, resulting it in becoming sluggish. Further collisions mean lower speeds which can make evading cops a challenge.
