Another possible design influence for the car featured in GTA IV is the european Ford Sierra XR4i, sold in the US under the name of Merkur XR4Ti. The front end treatment seems to be directly cribbed from the Merkur, also considering the Sierra RS Cosworth "whale tail" rear end spoiler. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merkur_XR4Ti

I took that car out of the description a long time ago because the spoiler is obviously thinner and more modern than the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth's.--Thescarydude 18:16, April 21, 2010 (UTC)



Someone should edit the "Performance in GTA IV" section. The first sentence says that the car has a 6-cylinder engine, yet towards the end of the paragraph, it says that it has a 4-cylinder.

I would edit it myself, but I have no idea what kind of engine it has. I've only driven the Uranus once, and on top of that, I'm not good with identifying engine types.

i think youre whrong, they say its a 6 cilinder yes ? and at the end they say its a 4, well they are talking about the Blista Compact : poor front steering that couses understeer and a overpowered 4 cilinder engine. so i guess the uranus is a 6 cilinder and the blista compact a 4. User:MC JP


"Unlike its rival, the Dinka Blista Compact, the front wheel drive system causes understeer, even at relatively low speed, and the small four-cylinder engine is underpowered, even though the Uranus is the lightest car in the game, according to the game files." That is referencing to the Uranus, not the Blista Compact. - User:Ferrari Carr

Well i dont know that much about engines,but id like to add that the SA rendition is rather close to a Saab.I cant remember right,but i guess the model was 98 Aero.

It's not a SAAB 9-3 it looks more like an EAGLE TALON. Trust me I know lots about cars.Andrew nicholson 14:47, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

It's a 4cyl, FWD layout(transversely mounted engine) like the Mitsubishi/Chrysler BD platform vehicles (despite the Uranus actually driving with its rear wheels only). If you knock the hood off one, you can see intake cone filter on the right side, then what appears to be a large intake manifold ran over the front half. If it was a V6, even in front wheel drive, there would be more symmetry front to rear for the motor be a V-design. The magic 3rd brake light is actually on the center console. Once you break the glass, you can see it out back window, but Camera zoom in, shows it lower than the dash, and at some angles can be seen through an open door, between the seats on the console. --NssJ 10:02, 18 October 2011 (BST)
