Car of the year 1981

Everything already once been there. Ford front-wheel drive vehicles are still present in 1962, indeed, with longitudinal built-in engine. However, the time is not yet ripe or the work has no staying power. Now it is the last mass manufacturer who offers such a model in the compact class still after VW and Opel. Now one hurries behind, to huge development expenses.

First car with floating caliper of newer design.

There is him directly as a world car. In Great Britain where he is also liked in the old form very much as well as in the USA, there however, with a little more angular front and relatively gigantic 'bumpers'. 3 doors and 5 doors are available, the latter version also as estate car. There is a total of five, especially for this vehicle developed motorisations. Later goes upwards there even more, and partner Mazda delivers a diesel engine.

Who comes as latter, something must contrive. In general is valid in that time a relatively square design. But this has done Opel already up to the borders of the aesthetics. And because Escort design is conservative particularly with look at the huge sales results on the island always a little bit, there is a stump rear, at least, with big tailgate. The advertisement calls it 'aero tail', one must know how to help himself. 06/09               Top of page               Index
