Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

Vehicle Overview Chrysler launched Plymouth in 1928 as a low-price rival for Chevrolet and Ford, but the brand name will disappear at the end of the 2001 model year. The Neon will carry on as a Dodge model for 2002. DaimlerChrysler announced last fall that it would phase out Plymouth.
For its last season, Plymouths version of the Neon gets a handful of new features, including optional side-impact airbags for the front seats.
Exterior Like its Dodge twin, the Plymouth Neon comes only as a four-door sedan. It is available in base and LX price levels, the latter with standard fog lamps and heated outside mirrors.
Interior With a pair of front buckets and a three-place rear bench, the Neon has the usual accommodations for five people. The rear seatback is split 60/40 and folds to expand the trunks 13-cubic foot capacity.
Air conditioning is standard on the LX and optional on the base model. Both come with a tilt steering column, rear window defogger and a six-speaker sound system with a cassette player.
Under the Hood Plymouth Neons come with a 132-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; Dodge also offers a 150-hp version of this engine. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, and a three-speed automatic is optional. Antilock brakes and low-speed traction control also are optional.
