The Stratum is a mid-sized 4 door station wagon that is available for the player in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. The Stratum has a more streamlined design, and can be upgraded at Wheel Arch Angels Garage. It also highly increases the player’s sex appeal.

Design

The Stratum closely resembles a early/mid-90’s Honda Accord wagon. Considering the performance and dual-exhaust ports, it is likely meant to be a V6, despite this option not being available on the Accord until reaching the fifth generation, beginning in the 1994 model year (It's appearance is also closer to 1994–1997 Accord Station wagons). The GTA IV version of the Stratum resembles a Nissan Skyline R32 sedan with a station wagon rear and square taillights belonging to 1994–1997 Accord Station wagons. Despite that it may look a lot like a sports car, it isn't as fast as the real life Skyline.

Performance

Acceleration and speed are surprisingly good, considering the Stratum’s size. The engine is most likely a powerful V6 and the drivetrain is rear-drive, making the Stratum a good selection as a drive-by vehicle. The body is, however, weakly constructed, making the car susceptible to intense damage from high-speed impacts and heavy gunfire.
