It is capable of more than 95 m.p.h., yet with day-to-day driving will return fuel consumption figures of around 33 m.p.g. Servo assistance is standard equipment for the disc/drum brakes as is the overdrive on top and third gears of the all-synchromesh four-speed box. Borg-Warner automatic is extra.
