TALBOT HORIZON

5-door 5-seater hatchback saloon.

Another re-badged Chrysler-France car, also built in UK from early eighties. Hatchback style only, chunkily detailed. All with transversely-mounted front engines and front-wheel drive, closely related to those in the Alpine (see below). Torsion bar suspension, all-independent, with several graduated trim packs. No 1.6-litre petrol, or diesel engined options here in the seventies.
