Despite being criticised as lacklusture by the motoring press, the latest version of the Ford Escort was Britain's best-selling car during 1992. To bolster its chances of maintaining pole position, Ford has given the Escort a mild facelift which has seen the introduction of some impressive new 16-valve fuel-injected "Zetec" petrol engines, while the 1.8 diesel has received a turbocharger. A similar facelift has been given to the Orion saloon version. All models have at least one airbag as standard, with most of the range having a passenger airbag and others also having anti-lock brakes.
Vauxhall's Cavalier was Britain's second-best selling car in 1992, and for the third year in succession it was the best-selling car in its sector. To strengthen its position in the face of an upcoming new rival from Ford, Vauxhall has facelifted the Cavalier range and boosted its safety levels to include a driver's airbag on all models, as well as a passenger airbag and anti-lock brakes being available on most of the range.
