2-door saloon, 4-door saloon, station wagon.
First unitary Austin and their answer to the Morris Minor, soon to share its engine and gearbox. Lighter and more frugal than the Morris, but hydromech brakes and a narrow track that makes the A30 hazardous in crosswinds. Structure durable. Two-door from late 1953, Countryman from September 1954.
