A type of automobile made in the 1980's by the Chrysler Corporation. The K cars have been categorized as compact for their external size and small front-wheel drive layout. They were designed to carry 6 adults on two bench seats. When someone makes reference to a "K car," they are speaking of the first generation models which were 1981-1989 Dodge Aries K and 1981-1989 Plymouth Reliant K.

1. Any Dodge Aries and Plymouth Reliant vehicles or variants.

They had Mitsubishi 2.6 L engines or Chrysler 2.2/2.5 L engines, not producing more horsepower than of those of an electric granny scooter.

Legend has that a boss at McKevitt Trucking produced these vehicles with ball-less (detesticulated) technical specifications so it won't go more than 55 miles per hour. Most drivers driving K-Cars are Sunday drivers or those who want the looks of a car but YET the power of an electric go-kart or granny pusher scooter.

In 1989, the final bona fide k-Cars were constructed and were swept under the carpet.

2. Although "erroneously" used: Any "k-car" wannabes (in terms of mass-production, or familiarity) from other vehicles like the Chevy Cavalier/Pantiass Sunfire or the Ford Escort.

A chrysler/dodge automobile designed by Lee Iacoca, rejected by ford. Commonly known to people who like them as EEKs or "Every Extended Ks."

It began with the omni and horizon and moved onto the aries, 600, new yourker, le-baron and many more, minivans included. the design still lives on with the caravan, voyager, neon and SX2.0

"Omni, what a ironic name for such a useless k-car."
