VERDICT:
µµµmm


HISTORY:
SEP 1990 Catalytic converter standard on all models. JAN 1991 All models have power assisted steering, front and rear disc brakes standard, 5-speed manual or 4-speed with overdrive or 4-speed automatic transmission, cloth trim, central locking, front seat lumbar support, headlamp wash/wipers on base model GL. GLE adds tinted glass, metallic paint and electric mirrors.

COMMENTS:
Styling is transatlantic and has dated badly but the interior is very spacious - the load area is six feet long with the rear seats folded. Handling is a bit vague, the smaller engines are not very refined and all except the turbo-diesels are thirsty.
