Rather dated in appearance, the low-priced Russian 1½-litre saloon is commanding high sales in Britain. Its specification is modern with inclined light-alloy overhead camshaft engine. With four doors, good-sized boot, servo brakes, and a comprehensive toolkit the Moskvich 412 is considered by many to be a very good buy. The de luxe saloon has seat belts, halogen auxiliary lights, laminated windscreen, deep carpets, and a radio included in the price. The 412 has proved successful in British saloon car racing, and in the World Cup Rally. There is also a roomy estate model.
