2016 Cadillac Escala
Really like the new look. :beer: 2016-08-20 04:38
1992-1995 Rover 800 Coupé [R17]
1996-99 models were a facelift with a slightly different grille and taillights as well as different engines. Separate page I guess? 2016-08-04 17:50
1995-1999 Rover 200 MkIII [R3]
I'm going to try and do as many Rovers as possible (I was working on those when I was first posting), do some Austins and Morrises (though these are more difficult to find info for) and also go through some Vauxhalls (but those are basically duplicates of the Opels so fairly straightforward). 2016-08-01 14:40
1994 Rover Metro Cabriolet (100 Cabriolet) [R6]

1984-1987 Opel Kadett GSi 1.8 [E]
sajmon14 is right, it has Opel on it only because it was entered by the GM dealersport team (this was towards the end of time that there were dealers that sold both Opel and Vauxhall). It was badged as a GTE (the Vauxhall version) and the picture is from the 1988 Lombard RAC Rally where entry number 15 was a Vauxhall Astra GTE raced by Derek Bell and Micheal Nicholson.

There was an Opel Kadett in that rally but from the GM Europe team, no 23 raced by Mats Jonsson and Lars Backman.

The range of models here is quite complicated, the XR6 and XR6 Turbo may need to be listed separately but they have the same motors as the G6 and G6 Turbo (but with a manual gearbox).

For the record, front view is G6 and rear view is XT.

1990-1993 Ford Orion MkIII
I think it was 1993/94 for the Orion/Escort change over. The Orions with the facelift had a chrome bar across the grill that the later Escorts lacked.

I'd suggest that model origin for this should be Australia, as the hatchback design was developed by Holden. 2012-04-08 21:00

IMO, the new European Civic is a retrograde step from its excellent predecessor in styling terms. In Europe, Honda are increasingly seen as struggling. No one knows what they stand for any more. 2012-04-08 17:09

2008-2012 Volkswagen Passat CC (CC) B6 [Typ 3C]
I saw one of these the other day. It had two aerials and blue LEDs in the grill so I think it must have been some kind of unmarked police car. 2012-02-28 14:03

2007-2010 Dodge Avenger Series II [JS]
There's a mistake. The Avenger was sold in the UK: www.autotrader.co.uk/search/used/cars/dodge/avenger/postcode/b66he/radius/1500/quicksearch/true

And I think most European states as well.

Saab No more GM cars for me ever again. :(

EDIT: The frown is for Saab. The fact that I won't buy a GM car probably merits a smile.

We don't get any RWD versions here (probably applies to all of Europe) and US only lists 35 as being available with it. 2011-12-09 21:50
2011 GRMN Sports Hybrid II

I quite like the look of this car. Is the interior lifted straight from the old MR-2?

It MIGHT have been sold here.

The later ones definitely were.

1989-1994 Ford Fiesta XR2i MkIII
Main image is an RS 1800 and not an XR2i. I think the red one in the background might be an XR2i though.

Also the 1.8 XR2i had a 105hp engine (It was the RS 1800 that had 130hp).

Here, petrol is about 1.50Euros here and diesel 1.60. In spite of the high price of it diesel cars are much are more common new as most of the market here is concentrated on company cars which pretty much have to be diesel due to the taxes and emissions caps on them. (For example my friend is just about the only person at his department who has a petrol company car and by the time he replaces it next year his company won't let him get a car that puts out more than 120 g/km so he'll pretty much have to get a diesel car).

Best selling cars in the UK are the Fiesta, Astra, Focus, Corsa, Golf, Polo, 207, 3 Series, MINI and Qashqai.

It was sold here too but they stopped due to poor sales.

I guess it will have been sold in most European markets.

1982-1986 Ford Sierra MkI [P100]
This is complicated. There was two different fronts for the Sierra up until 1985. The Base, L and GL had one front whereas the Ghia had another which was like the XR4i.

For 1985 the other trims got the Ghia/XR4i front.

1983-85 L/GL: imcdb.org/vehicle_143251-Ford-Sierra-1983.html

1992-1994 Toyota Estima Lucida [XR10]
It's a mirror. Quite common to see that on such large JDM vans.

I think it's to help people maneuver when reversing.

1987-1993 Ford Sierra (Sierra Sapphire) MkII [P100]
Didn't this have another front in mainland Europe before 1990?

Indeed I was going to say something about a 3 wheeler class. But for that I was intending things like the Morgan (which I was going to add until I couldn't find a concensus on the engine size), Grinall Scorpion and of course the Reliant Robin. For this I'm not sure and so will sit on the fence.

It's the same interior and bodyshell as the Peugeot 206 as far as I can tell. It's just been facelifted front and rear. 2011-10-13 22:53
2011-2015 Chrysler Ypsilon
Last Lancias were sold in the UK in 1993.

As Chrysler have a presence in the UK (dealer network, brand recognition etc) but no UK friendly models to sell (the two biggest sectors here are Ypsillon and Delta sized cars and the only other car Chrysler currently sells here is the Grand Voyager) it was decided to sell them as Chryslers.

I don't think it will be hugely successful for them as there is a lot of competition in the sectors and the cars are a bit expensive where Chrysler has always been a cheaper brand.

As a strategy on the whole it is not so bad. The costs of developing new models will be reduced by virtue of sharing them out.
