Model History
Produced between 1974 and 1980. This car was equipped with a 4-cylinder 1298cm3 and 76 horsepower engine. The power is delivered to the rear wheels vis a 4-speed manual gearbox. The car was produced as 2- and 4-door sedan, 3-door estate and 2-door van. „L” and „GL” versions were cars made for the masses. „Sport”, „RS Mexico” and „RS2000” were performance-oriented versions. „Ghia” was a trim for more demanding customers. Compared to the MK1, there were several changes in the front and rear of its chassis, but the interior remained untouched. In 1978 there was a small redesign, where the L cars got square headlights (in Ghia as a standard before). Changes were made also to the interior.
