Review of the 1998 Ford Contour SVT

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Energetic performance in the spirit of more expensive German sedans.

  • Cons

    Small-lettered stereo which is hard to tune without taking your eyes off the road, back seat is inadequate for most full-size adults.

  • What's New for 1998

    Ford's SVT gurus turn their attention to the Contour, and the end result is this thoroughly enjoyable, near 200-horsepower sport sedan. As with all Contour models for this year, the SVT has the new face that gives this Ford more character (though the new taillight treatment is almost identical to the Contour's cousin, the Mercury Mystique). Halfway through the model year, the SVT got new wheels and tires, a slightly revised suspension and depowered airbags.
