It's still the same type 44 platform as the 5000, but it's got the
1989 revisions which includes new interior (new style dashboard
and door panels), new style door handles, relocated trunk lock
cylinder, new style wheels, etc.  The 1989 200 models received the
same revisions.

Yes, you have the 130hp engine.  You have a 2.3 liter engine with
high compression instead of the previous 2.2 liter 110hp unit.
