Redesigned at the rear, the Mark 2 offers easier entry to rear seats and much improved vision. Modified callipers and a larger servo give better braking. Softer suspension improves the ride and lower geared steering takes the strain out of parking. Larger radiator and new fuel system are other improvements. Radio, heated rear window, tinted glass, reclining seats with adjustable head restraints are part of the package.

The reclining front seats have built in head restraints. A front air dam and rear spoiler aid stability.
