The Dodge Omni and Horizon should get a lot more attention than they do. Here was a extremely modern, front wheel drive, competitive compact from an American manufacturer. The only other car similar was the Fiesta, but it was smaller; the Horizon was sized like a Golf (and looked a lot like a Golf as well). The Omni/Horizon soldiered on until 1990, however, and by that time it was outdated among rivals. Along the way, it spawned the Horizon TC3/Omni 024, as well as the Omni-based Shelby GLH and GLHS.
