Competing against the likes of Ford's Taurus, Dodge's Intrepid and Toyota's Camry, the Cutlass Supreme has three distinct body styles to bring to a highly competitive market segment. There's a good-size 4-door sedan for those with friends to bring along or children to strap into baby seats, a 2-door coupe for those who travel mostly alone or in pairs, and the only convertible midsize American car. There's a single trim level in all three body styles, the SL. It includes a full range of equipment that's usually optional on other cars. Most buyers opt for the 160-hp 3.1-liter V6, and it's more than adequate to the task. Also available is the Twin Dual Cam 3400, a 24-valve V6 screamer that puts out 210 hp. Both of these engines drive the front wheels through an electronically-controlled 4-speed automatic transaxle. Changes for '95 include a major revamping of the Supreme's interior. Starting with dual airbags, safety improvements include added structure to exceed upcoming federal standards for side impacts. Seatbelts are now anchored to the floor and B-pillar rather than the door, and there's an adjustable guide loop for the seatbelt at the driver's and passenger's shoulder. A new instrument panel, heating and air conditioning controls, and a full-size glovebox complete the interior. An integral CD player is available with steering-wheel mounted radio buttons.  The suspension has been retuning for more responsive steering and reduced body roll. Electronic Variable Orifice rack and pinion steering uses an electrical solenoid to change power steering boost with varying vehicle speeds.
