The Oldsmobile Starfire, reviving a nameplate from Oldsmobile's past, was a corporate H-body twin to the Chevrolet Monza (among the Buick Skyhawk and Pontiac Sunbird). It is based on the Chevrolet Vega and shares its wheelbase, width. Unlike the Monza and Sunbird, the Starfire was available only as a 3-door hatchback, and became the first Oldsmobile model since the 1940s to have a 4-cylinder engine.(1977 models shared Vega's standard powertrain) The sport-packaged Firenza became available after introduction, much like the Monza's Spyder package. The Starfire was discontinued after 1980, to be replaced in 1982 by the Firenza J-car.

See the Chevrolet Monza entry for more comments about the Oldsmobile Firenza.
