CHRYSLER ALPINE

5-door 5-seater hatchback.

Smart front-wheel drive fastback/hatchback model from Chrysler France, badged as Simca in many other countries, and Car of the Year when first revealed. Same 'mould' as Renault 16, but smoother style. Transverse engine/transmission closely related to Simca 1100 and Horizon with soft ride and strong understeer most times. Rebadged Talbot for 1980, made until 1985, with Solara 'notchback' relative as well.
